Antinori San Giovanni della Sala Orvieto Classico Superiore DOC

2020

In a Nutshell

Premium Orvieto from Antinori.

Tasting Notes

Pale straw yellow colour with greenish highlights. The nose offers pleasurable notes of tropical fruit that merge with light mineral sensations. On the palate, excellent balance between structure and freshness, good savoury character and pleasant persistence of yellow fruit.

Production Notes

The grapes were brought to the cellar and each different grape variety was fermented separately to enhance their unique characteristics. Part of the must was cold soaked on the skins for about 6 hours at a controlled temperature of 10 °C (50 °F) and then blended with the other part that was only gently pressed. The blended must was then transferred into temperature controlled stainless steel tanks where alcoholic fermentation took place at a temperature of 16 °C (61 °F). The wine was left to age on the lees for several months and up until the final blending and bottling to improve its structure, elegance and minerality
