Description
 
A brilliant garnet red in color with delicate aromas which range from fruit to spices, the wine is soft and savory with silky tannins which show a very important aging potential. 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.

You wouldn't immediately associate sunny and landlocked Umbria as a land of Pinot Noir cultivation, but this effort from Castello della Sala presents a convincing argument for this particular pairing of grape and territory. The 2016 Pinot Nero opens to a beautiful ruby color and delivers aromas that are very characteristic of the variety, such as blue flower, wild cherry and orange peel. However, there is a distinctively Mediterranean or Italian signature to this wine with garden herb and rosemary essence. I remember the 2015 vintage being slightly more closed when I tasted that wine on release. This 2016 vintage sings loud straight from the start. Wine Advocate 93 (2016)
