The 2014 Muffato della Sala (with 30,000 500-milliliter bottles produced) is a sweet blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Grechetto, Semillon, Traminer and Riesling. This is a precious wine that is only made when the correct humid conditions are met. It was not produced in the dry 2012 vintage, nor was it made in the scorching hot 2017 vintage. In terms of this vintage, I'm told the Grechetto had no problem getting botrytis cinerea. The Traminer and Riesling were not affected by so-called noble rot, but the grapes were concentrated for extra sugar and flavor. This vintage is certainly thinner compared to past editions. It offers more shallow flavor intensity with aromas that are fragrant and bright, albeit less intense overall. This wine needs a few more years (maybe five) to flesh out and gain in volume. Wine Advocate 92 (2014)

The four hectares (ten acres) of vineyards dedicated to the production of the Castello della Sala’s Pinot Noir are situated at 400 meters (1325 feet) above sea level on soils composed of calcareous fossil remains and sedimentary sands which go back to the Pliocene epoch. The first vintage to be produced was the 1990. The Castello della Sala is a fourteenth century fortress located at approximately 18 kilometers (11 miles) from the city of Orvieto and was acquired by the Antinori family in the year 1940.
