Winemaking
The grapes, picked with sugar levels slightly above average, were fermente separately, variety by variety. In order to achieve proper aroma and extract levels in the wine, the technique of cold maceration is employ for a part of the crop: the grapes, after pressing, remain in contact with their skins for approximately six hours at a temperature of 50° Fahrenheit (10° centigrade). This must is added to that obtained by a direct pressing of the other grapes and went into stainless steel tanks, where it fermented at temperatures held to a maximum of 61° Fahrenheit (16° centigrade).
Aging of wine
After the first rackings, the wine remain on its fine lees for several months to increase structure, elegance, and mineral character and was then blended and bottled.

History
The first vintage of the Castello della Sala Orvieto Classico was 1990. In 1997 the wine became an Orvieto DOC Classico Superiore, a new appellation category established in that year. The “Superiore” category specifies that yields per acre in the vineyard must be lower than those of a normal Orvieto Classico, that the grapes can only be picked when in an advanced state of ripeness, and that the wine itself can only be marketed after the date of March 1st following the harvest itself. The Castello della Sala castle is located approximately ten miles (18 kilometers) from the city of Orvieto and is a fine example of medieval military architecture. The estate enjoys an ideal micro-climate for the production of wines which require cooler than average temperatures, in particular white wines.
