The castle’s fermentation cellars were constructed to take full advantage of the principle of gravity and assists the movement of the grapes and their maceration without the crop being pumped or subjected to mechanical movement of the mass. The picking of the grapes takes place during the very first hours of the day so that the cellars receive fruit in pristine condition, without the influence of the higher and warmer temperatures of the day. The must is treated to a maceration on its skins for four hours at a temperature of 50 °Fahrenheit (10 °Centigrade) and subsequently falls into stainless steel fermentation tanks where it loses its impurities before going into small oak barrels. Here it fully ferments and then is put through a complete malolactic fermentation. After five months of aging, the Chardonnay is usually ready to be blended and to go back into stainless steel, where it is assembled with the Grechetto, which has been fermented, separately, on its own, without contact with wood. The Cervaro della Sala is then aged in bottle for various months in the Castello della Sala cellars before being placed on the market.

Castello della Sala

Castello della Sala is located in the Umbria region, not far from the Tuscan border, about 18 kilometers from the historic city of Orvieto. The Medieval castle’s property extends over an area of 500 hectares (1235 acres), 170 hectares (420 acres) are planted with vineyards at an altitude that varies between 220 and 470 meters above sea level (722/1541 feet) on the gently rolling hillsides that characterize the beautiful countryside in this area. Castello della Sala is the perfect place for growing white varieties. The vines grow in clay and calcareous based soils, rich in fossil shells, and they are well exposed to the rising of the sun with an excellent difference of temperature between day and night. The one exception to the rule is Pinot Noir, the only red variety that has found in this area ideal growing conditions to best express its full potential.
