Located in Umbria, Castello della Sala is a sumptuous manor house built in 1350 by Angelo Monaldeschi della Vipera.
Castello della Sala looks after 500 hectares of land, including 170 hectares of vineyards. Situated at an altitude of between 220 and 470 metres, the vines are planted on clay-limestone soils rich in fossil shells. They benefit from ideal exposure to the sun and wide temperature variations between day and night, ensuring that the grapes ripen perfectly.
This estate opened a new chapter in its history in 1979, under the impetus of the young agronomist Renzo Cotarella. His ambition was to produce great Italian wines that would magnify the nuances of this terroir located near the town of Orvieto.
A major restructuring of the vineyard was then undertaken. The vineyard is now planted with traditional grape varieties (Procanico, Grechetto) as well as Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon, Pinot Blanc, Viognier, Traminer and Riesling.
Owned by the Antinori family, the Antinori Castello Sala estate produces Umbrian wines renowned for their quality and richness. These wines are aged in the 16th-century cellar beneath this medieval estate.
