A light yellow in color with greenish highlights, the wines shows fruity and varietal aromas with pleasurable notes of citrus fruit along with white peaches and lichees. The palate is characterful and structured with a vibrant vein of acidity which adds freshness to the flavors. The finish and aftertaste are long and balanced.
-Wine "Conte della Vipera" named after the first owners of Castello della Sala. On the wine label depicts the chapel of St. John, built in the XV century and located in the territory of the Castello della Sala. The first issue of the wine took place in 1997.
"Conte della Vipera" made from Sauvignon Blanc with a little Semillon grown in vineyards, which are located at an altitude of 250 to 350 meters above sea level, on the basis of the rich deposits of marine fossils with infiltration of clay minerals. This terroir allows you to harvest Sauvignon Blanc with a good sugar concentration and the maximum expression of the varietal aroma and flavor with hints of minerals and fruits."
“The 2013 Conte della Vipera is another delicious wine from the Antinori family (owners of Castello della Sala). This blended white shows very nicely in this vintage with stone fruit, white almond, yellow rose and fresh summer peach. In the mouth, the wine delivers medium texture, creamy consistency and a long finish. Conte della Vipera never skips a beat. It should hold for the next five years.”
