Located 330 meters above sea level and 18 kilometres from the historic city of Orvieto, the Antinori Tenuta Castello della Sala winery is located in an area of gentle slopes covered in vineyards and olive groves interspersed with woods of Mediterranean scrub.
The project by the ASV3 – Officina di Architettura firm managed by Architect Fiorenzo Valbonesi not only led to the creation of the new winery and of the new cellar, but also to the renovation of the existing buildings.
Enthusiastically commissioned by the Antinori Family, the project combines skilful use of the materials such as stone, wood and lime plaster, found in nature and modified by man, with a careful technical study of the production cycle.
Cotto d’Este was chosen by the ASV3 firm for the floors of the majestic building. In particular, Architect Valbonesi selected the Buxy collection, which draws inspiration from stone from Burgundy in France.
Matt and tactile to the touch, Buxy is a versatile collection that gives spaces a very natural look; the choice of finishes, Caramel and Noisette, also confirms a preference for muted and delicate shades.
Thanks to the 14 mm thickness, the collection is perfect for work environments. Its high tensile strength, three times higher than traditional 10 mm stoneware, resistance to water absorption, bending, impact, stains and chemical attacks make the extra-thick porcelain stoneware tiles ideal for the winery areas.
