The 2008 vintage is golden yellow in color and expresses intensity of flavor and aroma, mainly of floral, hone and zesty sensations of honey. On the palate, it is balanced and harmonious.
91-Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2008 Muffato della Sala is quite soft and understated in this vintage, with less of the overt sweetness of some prior editions. Floral notes meld into apricot jam, jasmine and sweet spices in a mid-weight, gracious Muffato that is all about elegance. A finely-knit finish rounds things out in style. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2018.

Scents of honey and fresh white peaches introduce this blend of sauvignon blanc, grechetto, gewürztraminer and riesling. It’s grown at Antinori’s Cervaro della Sala and harvested late in the season, a vineyard selection of bunches affected by botrytis, which adds scents of straw and toast to the clean fruit. Delicious with a savory pear tart.
Made from grapes that have been exposed to muffa nobile or botrytis, this lovely dessert wine boasts sensations of candied fruit, dried apricot, almond and ripe yellow peach. The rich flavors are balanced with freshness, making it an ideal meditation wine to sip after dinner or pair it with seasoned cheeses.
