      Winemaker Notes

      A brilliant golden yellow in color, the wine shows aromas of dried and candied fruit, nuts, and yellow flowers. Sweet on the palate, the wine is balanced by a highly pleasurable and invigorating freshness. The long aromatic persistence indicates an excellent potential for aging.

      Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
      The precious 2009 Muffato della Sala (Sauvignon Blanc, Grechetto, Semillon, Traminer and Riesling) is stunning on all levels. Aromas of candied fruit, caramel, honey and marzipan burst from the glass. The mouthfeel is viscous, rich and syrupy – but there’s enough acidity to keep it from feeling heavy or fat. The hot 2009 vintage has shaped a spectacular Muffato. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2030.

      Jasmine and ground cardamom aromas play off the pure note of baked apricot in this creamy sweetie, with flavors of honeycomb, butterscotch candy and candied pink grapefruit zest, framed by bright, citrusy acidity that leaves a lightly mouthwatering impression on the herb-laced finish. Gewürztraminer, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon and Grechetto. Drink now through 2025.

      The warm 2009 growing season yielded an aromatic sweet white from Antinori’s Castello della Sala. A blend of botrytis-affected sauvignon blanc with smaller portions of gewurztraminer, riesling, grechetto and semillon, it’s glossy and rich, the flavor concentration of dried apricot, ginger and golden raisin cut by a caramelized orange note. Pair it with mature cheeses and salty nuts.

      The Antinori family of Florence, one of the world's oldest and most distinguished wine producers, has lived in Tuscany since the 14th century and celebrated its 625th anniversary as wine makers in 2010. The current company president, Marchese Piero Antinori, believes in the tradition that the primary role of wine is to accompany food and enhance the dining experience. In Florence, the Antinori family has led a "Renaissance" in Italian wine making by combining long traditions, a love of authenticity and a dynamic innovative spirit.

      One of the most iconic Italian regions for wine, scenery and history, Tuscany is the world’s most important outpost for the Sangiovese grape. Ranging in style from fruity and simple to complex and age-worthy, Sangiovese makes up a significant percentage of plantings here, with the white Trebbiano Toscano coming in second.

      Within Tuscany, many esteemed wines have their own respective sub-zones, including Chianti, Brunello di Montalcino and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. The climate is Mediterranean and the topography consists mostly of picturesque rolling hills, scattered with vineyards.

      Sangiovese at its simplest produces straightforward pizza-friendly wines with bright and juicy red fruit, but at its best it shows remarkable complexity and ageability. Top-quality Sangiovese-based wines can be expressive of a range of characteristics such as sour cherry, balsamic, dried herbs, leather, fresh earth, dried flowers, anise and tobacco. Brunello expresses well the particularities of vintage variations and is thus popular among collectors. Chianti is associated with tangy and food-friendly dry wines at various price points. A more recent phenomenon as of the 1970s is the “Super Tuscan”—a wine made from international grape varieties like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Syrah, with or without Sangiovese. These are common in Tuscany’s coastal regions like Bolgheri, Val di Cornia, Carmignano and the island of Elba.

      Apart from the classics, we find many regional gems of different styles.

      Late harvest wines are probably the easiest to understand. Grapes are picked so late that the sugars build up and residual sugar remains after the fermentation process. Ice wine, a style founded in Germany and there referred to as eiswein, is an extreme late harvest wine, produced from grapes frozen on the vine, and pressed while still frozen, resulting in a higher concentration of sugar. It is becoming a specialty of Canada as well, where it takes on the English name of ice wine.

      Vin Santo, literally “holy wine,” is a Tuscan sweet wine made from drying the local white grapes Trebbiano Toscano and Malvasia in the winery and not pressing until somewhere between November and March.

      Rutherglen is an historic wine region in northeast Victoria, Australia, famous for its fortified Topaque and Muscat with complex tawny characteristics.
