Cervaro della Sala 2007 Magnum
Cervaro della Sala was one of the first Italian white wines to have malolactic fermentation and aging take place in barriques.
The idea behind Cervaro della Sala was to craft a white wine able to age over time.
Temperatures throughout the winter were mild, rarely dropping below 0° C. Thanks to a serene and balanced spring, especially due to the absence of rain, plant regrowth was excellent, developing about 15 days ahead of schedule, as compared to the previous year. This made it necessary to carry out certain activities in the vineyard contemporaneously; which usually take place consecutively one by one. The months of July and August were hot but without peaks in temperature, thus permitting grape maturation to take place gradually and steadily. The absence of rainy days during the period of grape maturation resulted in extremely healthy bunches, even if they ripened ahead of time and weighed less, consequently producing a lower quantity. The chardonnay harvest began in the first half of August and continued to the first days of September.
