Description

The Conte della Vipera di Antinori is a white wine that comes from the union of two international grape varieties: Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. These grapes are grown in the vineyards of the Castello della Sala estate, a few kilometers from Orvieto.

Tasting notes

The Conte della Vipera di Antinori has a pale and pale straw yellow color, with light greenish reflections. The nose opens with a bouquet of fruity notes, ranging from citrus to exotic fruit. On the palate it has a frank and direct sip, with good freshness and a smooth drink. This white is ideal in combination with fish dishes and recipes.

Processing

After manual harvesting, the bunches are taken to cellars and passed through a refrigerated conveyor that allows the temperature to be lowered before pressing in order to maintain the aromatic characteristics of the grapes. After pressing, they are kept for a few hours at a temperature of 10 ° C before being transferred to stainless steel tanks. Alcoholic fermentation takes place in these tanks. Finally, the two grape varieties are united.

The Cellar

The Antinori family has been dedicated to wine production for more than six hundred years: since 1385, when Giovanni di Piero Antinori became part of the Florentine Art of the Vinattieri. Through 26 generations, the Antinori family has always managed this business directly, making innovative and sometimes courageous choices, and always maintaining the respect for traditions and for the territory unchanged. Today the company is managed by the Marquis Piero Antinori, with the support of the three daughters all personally involved in the business activities. A path made of tradition, passion and intuition: the Antinori Marquises have established themselves as one of the main Italian wine producers.
