San Giovanni della Sala...

San Giovanni della Sala...

San Giovanni Della Sala<br />Orvieto DOC Classico Superiore<br /><br /><br />Climate: 2020 will be remembered as a tendentially dry year. The winter, almost completely devoid of rain, was dominated by temperatures that were not too cold. The<br />spring weather, which arrived slightly later than in previous years, was characterised by mild days and temperatures above seasonal averages, with the exception of a few<br />cooler periods at the beginning of April. Then, from June until almost mid-August, the warm and dry weather led to an early ripening of the grapes. A summer thunderstorm<br />towards the end of August refreshed the later varieties such as Grechetto and Procanico, ensuring that they reached a good degree of ripeness while maintaining freshness<br />and fragrance. The harvest of Grechetto, Viognier and Pinot Bianco for San Giovanni della Sala began around the last week of August and ended with the harvest of<br />Procanico towards the middle of September.<br /><br /><br />Vinification: on arrival at the winery, the grapes were vinified separately by variety to enhance the varietal characteristics. Part of the must underwent cold maceration,<br />remaining in contact with its skins for about 6 hours at a temperature of 10 °C, before being combined with the must obtained from the soft direct pressing of the grapes. The<br />must thus obtained was transferred to stainless steel tanks where alcoholic fermentation took place at a controlled temperature of 16 °C. The wine remained on its lees for a<br />few months to improve its structure, elegance and minerality until it was blended and bottled.<br /><br />Historical data: San Giovanni was born from the vineyards of the ancient Castello della Sala from the union of indigenous Grechetto and Procanico grapes with those of Pinot<br />Bianco and Viognier to tell the Orvieto Classico according to a new style. The first vintage of Castello della Sala Orvieto Classico was 1990.<br /><br />Tasting notes: San Giovanni della Sala has a light straw yellow colour with greenish reflections. On the nose, pleasant notes of tropical fruit combine with light mineral<br />sensations. On the palate it stands out for its balance between structure and freshness with good flavour and a pleasant persistence of yellow flesh fruit.<br /><br />Alcohol content: 12.0% Vol.<br />

I Frati<br />Lugana Doc<br /><br />The wine that has made the company's image known and continues to do so. It has a direct link with its variety, Turbiana, our indigenous vine. Conceived to be consumed<br />during the year, it expresses its best side many years after bottling.

Time allows it to evolve, expressing its mineral notes with greater determination. The wine acquires its own complexity<br />with hints of iodine, spices and candied fruit. In the mouth it is capable of enveloping the whole palate thanks to an important savoury essence accompanied by lively and<br />exuberant acidity. When young, it is best served at a temperature of around 10 degrees, with cold or warm but delicate hors d'oeuvres and with boiled, steamed or grilled fish<br />dishes.<br />Technical data<br /><br />Grape varieties used: Turbiana 100%.<br />Soil composition: calcareous - clayey<br />Training system: Simple and double Guyot<br />Planting system: 2.30 x 0.70<br />Yield per hectare: 90 quintals<br />Type of vinification: steel<br />Malolactic: Not carried out<br />Ageing and development: in steel on fine lees for a minimum of 6 months, followed by 2 months in bottle<br />Alcohol content: 13%.<br />Total acidity: 6.40 g/L<br />Volatile acidity: 0.30 g/L<br />pH: 3.20<br />Dry extract: 21 g/L<br />

This is the first time an agricultural practice has been considered an intangible and cultural asset. Plant density from 2,500 to 3,600<br />plants/ha with a yield of 50-60 quintals/ha.<br />VINTAGE: on Pantelleria, where Donnafugata cultivates 68 hectares of vineyards spread over 14 different districts, the 2020 vintage was slightly less rainy, with 433 mm of<br />rain compared to the average of 462 mm*. The quantity produced is in line with the average production of Donnafugata on the island; the quality of the grapes brought to the<br />cellar is excellent. The wines of the 2020 vintage stand out for their aromatic intensity and excellent freshness.* The rainfall recorded from 1 October to 30 September of the<br />following year is taken into account; the average is calculated from the 2013 harvest.<br />HARVEST: the harvest of Zibibbo at Donnafugata traditionally lasts for about 4 weeks, in the 14 districts where the estate has its vineyards, which differ in altitude,<br />exposure, proximity or distance from the sea; the 2020 harvest began on 17 August and ended on 9 September.<br />VINIFICATION: fermentation takes place in steel at a temperature of 14-16°C.

Get together and intrigue all your friends, from the curious to the<br />passionate.<br />DIALOGUE WITH ART: 'From the messy sun-coloured hair the sea water dripped on the wide-open green eyes' ... This is how Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa describes<br />Lighea, the bewitching mermaid who is the central character in one of his stories and who gave rise to a complex and innovative wine and an equally original label. It was not<br />easy,' says Gabriella, founder of Donnafugata with her husband Giacomo, 'to print this label and preserve the thousands of shades of the island's colours, portrayed in the<br />original sketch.<br />FIRST VINTAGE: 1990.<br /><br />Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)<br />

Vin Santo 375ml SALVETTA 2009

Vin Santo 375ml SALVETTA 2009

Vin Santo<br /><br />Historical evidence tells of the existence of Vino Santo as early as the 16th century in the vicinity of Castel Toblino, and it is certain that a Vino Santo Puro was produced<br />from the Rauten vineyards in Sarche as early as 1825 (diploma Melbourne Australia 1880-1881).<br /><br />The ancient tradition, masterfully perpetrated up to the Salvetta brothers, comes back to life with the Salvetta Winery: the long and complex process leads to the birth of this<br />great meditation wine.<br /><br />Harvested late, in fact, the Nosiola bunches are left to rest in well-ventilated areas on the 'Arele', the racks on which the grapes dry naturally for several months, until they<br />are pressed during Holy Week, between March and April of the year following the harvest. The wine is then left to ferment and refine for five years in oak barrels and steel,<br />until bottling.<br /><br />The result is a sweet wine to be enjoyed at a temperature of 10 - 12 degrees, on its own or with dry desserts. The combination with blue cheeses and foie gras is<br />exceptional.<br /><br />The vintages currently being aged are those of the 2014, 2015 and 2016 harvests, while the 2009 and 2011 vintages are on sale.<br />

Cervaro della Sala 2018...

Cervaro della Sala 2018...

Cervaro della Sala 2019<br />Classification Umbria IG<br />Vintage 2019<br /><br />Climate: The winter tended to be mild and sunny while the spring was characterised by slightly below average temperatures and frequent rainfall. These weather conditions<br />lasted until the end of May and affected the flowering and setting times of both varieties, with a delay of around ten days. Since June, the weather has been generally dry.<br />The vines, favoured by the excellent availability of water in the soil, maintained a good vegetative balance even during the hot month of August, guaranteeing complete<br />veraison and slow, gradual ripening. The excellent temperature excursions between day and night made it possible to obtain healthy bunches rich in aromatic precursors.<br />The Chardonnay harvest for Cervaro della Sala began towards the end of the third decade of August with healthy, ripe grapes characterised by excellent freshness and an<br />excellent aromatic profile. The Grechetto harvest took place after about fifteen days, towards the middle of September.<br /><br />Vinification: The vinification cellar is built to take full advantage of the principle of gravity and allows the management of the marc and its maceration without mechanical<br />intervention by pumping. The grapes are harvested in the very early hours of the morning so that the fruit reaches the cellar intact and not stressed by the higher<br />temperatures of the day. The musts, which come from pellicular maceration of the grapes at 10 °C for about four hours, are transferred by gravity to decantation tanks where<br />they clarify before being transferred to barriques. It is here that alcoholic fermentation takes place, followed by malolactic fermentation. Usually after five months the<br />Chardonnay is ready to be transferred back into steel to join the Grechetto, which is vinified separately and in the 'absence' of wood. The Cervaro della Sala then matures for<br />a few months in the bottle in the historic cellars of Castello della Sala before being released on the market.<br /><br />History: The name Cervaro comes from the noble family that owned the Castello della Sala during the 14th century: the MacDonaldeschi della Cervara. Chardonnay grapes<br />combined with a small amount of Grechetto for a wine designed to age over time and represent the elegance and complexity of a unique place. Cervaro della Sala was one<br />of the first Italian wines to undergo malolactic fermentation and ageing in barriques with the first vintage in 1985.<br /><br />Tasting Notes: Cervaro della Sala 2019 has a pale yellow colour with greenish highlights still evident. On the nose it is intense and complex, with notes of citrus, pineapple<br />and acacia flowers well in harmony with hints of vanilla and stonecrop. On the palate it is full, fine and well structured; the pleasant sapidity is well balanced by the typical<br />sweet sensations of hazelnut butter. The 2019 vintage will be remembered as one of the great vintages of Cervaro della Sala, capable of expressing itself today and in the<br />years to come.<br />
