"Sweet, succulent peaches, ripe pears, jasmine and light, floral honey are some of the nuances that emerge from Antinori’s 2007 Muffato della Sala. When the estate’s Muffato is firing on all cylinders it is one of Italy’s most delicious fresh, early-drinking dessert wines. That is certainly the case in 2007. Muffato della Sala is 60% Sauvignon Blanc and 40% Grechetto, Traminer and Riesling. In 2007 the fruit was picked towards the end of October and into November. The wine spent six months in French oak barrels before it was prepared for bottling. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2015." (WA)

Winery Notes:
60% Sauvignon Blanc 40% Grechetto, Traminer and Riesling

Golden yellow in color with intense aromas and flavors of delicate flowers, honey and fresh, citrus fruit. Though young, this rich dessert wine is already well-balanced with great elegance and complexity, capable of aging further.
