    Muffato della Sala Umbria IGT 0,5 l 2013 - Castello della Sala

    The Muffato della Sala Umbria IGT from Castello della Sala glows intensely golden yellow in the glass. On the nose, the Muffato is a delight with delicate and elegant aromas, floral notes but above all ripe fruit, apricot and peach, citrus fruits, supplemented by salty and mineral nuances. On the palate the complex play of aromas continues, sweetness and freshness complement each other harmoniously and give this noble sweet wine its fine texture and pleasant fullness. The finish is long with a delicate spicy, fresh and harmonious aftertaste.

    Vinification of Muffato della Sala from Castello della Sala

    The unique Italian dessert wine Muffato della Sala is vinified from grapes harvested at the end of October and beginning of November overripe, after the Botrytis cinerea developed with the morning autumn fog, the so-called noble rot, which reduces the water content of the grapes and concentrates aromas and sugar content. This gives the Muffato della Sala a harmonious and incomparable taste. The first vintage was vinified in 1987 and was composed of Sauvignon 50%, Grechetto 30% and Drupeggio 20&´%. In the following years, the composition was varied, up to the present cuvée of  Sauvignon Blanc 60% and 40% Traminer, Riesling, Sémillon and Grechetto.

    The grapes are harvested manually, picking several times in the same vineyard, depending on the presence of noble rot on the individual grapes. In the cellar a further manual selection takes place before pressing. The must then ferments for 18 days at a controlled temperature of approx. 17°C. The sweet wines obtained in this way are then transferred to French oak barriques from Allier and Tronçais and matured for 6 months, followed by the cuvée from the individual wines and further maturing and harmonization of the Muffato for several months in stainless steel tanks before it is finally bottled.
    Muffato della Sala is an exceptional and unique terroir wine, produced in very limited quantities and only in the best vintages.
