Castello della Sala Cervaro della Sala Umbria Chardonnay Grechetto 2020

Delectable Wine
9.3

Nosing the 2020 Cervaro della Sala is like waking into a French bakery in the early morning, with notes of lemon oil, butter cream, crusty bread, fresh dough and vanilla bean contrasted by a whiff of crushed oyster shell, which may not be on the menu, but still works perfectly here. This glides effortlessly across the palate with the silkiest of textures, steadily gaining in tension, as mineral-drenched orchard fruits give way to sour melon and, finally, pretty inner florals. The 2020 lingers impossibly long and lightly structured, displaying notes of candied citrus enriched by almond custard. I'd love to toss this blend of 92% Chardonnay and 8% Grechetto into a blind tasting of white Burgundy. Beautifully done. (Eric Guido, Vinous, November 2022)

Riserva Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2013

RL and I were totally thrown off by this blind. We were right on a Bordeaux blend, but got to give credit to ourselves for thinking it might not have been French due to a sheen of varnish on the fruit. I was right on the Super Tuscans (pretty close in some sense) before it was revealed to be a Chianti. What! Having said all that, it might have been the addition of 10% Cabernet Sauvignon in the wine that misled us.

Wine of the night for most on the table and I can see why. By the end of the night, it was crunchy with lifted dark fruits, cedar, herbs, leather, and some mineral tones. Still a little too rich and concentrated for me at this stage, but there’s definitely some underlying energy present.

@Aaron Tan having had a couple of these from the early 80’s in the last year, I can confirm that they also age very well

@Jay Kline Oh cool. This did seem to have an underlying elegance to it, which I think time would bring out.

Solaia Annata Diversa Toscana Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Franc 2012

Always a velvety joy. Fine accompaniment with some simple pasta as well as a tomato risotto. Opens nicely after first hour into a longer smoother wine. But it was lovely from the first sip regardless. Medium color and floral aromatics. — 17 days ago
