||Castello della Sala estate near Orvieto in Umbria
||Altitude: 1320 feet (400 meters) above sea level.
||After destemming and a partial pressing, the must went into small, conical, stainless steel fermenting tanks where it fermented on its skins for approximately one week. The must fermented at a temperature of 79° Fahrenheit (26° centigrade) and finished its fermentation in small French oak barrels, where it subsequently went through a complete malolactic fermentation.
||The aging in oak barrels continued for ten months, and the wine, at the end of this period of oak aging, was then bottled. An additional eight month period of bottle aging in the historic Castello della Sala cellars preceded commercial release.
