“Il Muffato della Sala” dessert wine
Muffato della Sala is made with grapes exposed to botrytis, harvested at the beginning of November, so that the morning fog was able to encourage the development of the Botrytis Cinerea, or “noble rot” on the grape bunches.
This mold reduces the water content of the grapes and increases the concentration of sugars and aromas, giving Muffato della Sala a harmonious and unmistakable flavour. The first vintage was produced in 1987 and was composed of sauvignon blanc (50%), grechetto (30%), and drupeggio (20%).
Subsequent blends varied until the current blend was created. Muffato della Sala is produced in very limited quantities.
The color is golden yellow. It is a wine with very intense aromas and taste, characterized by floral and honey-like flavors followed by fresh, almost citrusy notes. Even in its youth it is already well-balanced.
