Soft yet full-bodied and great value Italian white
Shimmers brightly with light straw yellow and green, flinty hues. Full-bodied, crisp and well-blanced with rich aromatics and a persistent finish. On the nose, tropical flavours of peach, grapefruit and pineapple mix with subtle floral notes of elderflower. Vibrant and savory on the palate with nuances of lemon peel, ginger, figs and a wet-stone minerality

Food Pairing: Ideal complement for starters, pasta and risotto with fish. Light meat and vegetable dishes especially poultry or rabbit. Suitable for young cheeses.
STORY BEHIND THIS WINE
Spanning a scarcely believable 26 generations and 6 centuries, the Antinori family have been synonymous with high quality winemaking in Central Italy and beyond. While their historical home base of Tuscany is famous for red wines, these ever-innovative and progressive winemakers purchased the Castello della Sala estate back in 1940 with the specific aim of producing top quality white wines. The Conte della Vipera’s first vintage was back in 1997 and is yet another success story from this powerhouse of Italian wine.
