Castello della Sala Conte della Vipera 2019

First produced in 1997 Conte della Vipera takes its name from the first proprietors of the Castello della Sala, and the label shows the 13th century Saint John’s Chapel (the Cappella d San Giovanni) situated on the estate. This white wine is produced from a careful selection of Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon grapes grown on the estates own vineyards. Straw yellow in colour the wine offers a striking bouquet of ripe fruits: peach, grapefruit, and pineapple. The palate is full well balanced and persistent with a bracing and savoury freshness.
