The wine

Bramito del Cervo is a single varietal Chardonnay which the Castello della Sala winery has been making since 1994 in its majestic medieval building in the Umbrian Apennines. Although the winery's origins date back to the 14th Century, since 1940 the estate has belonged to the Antinori family and presently possesses 500 ha of land, with 140 ha dedicated to vines. In this geographic location of gentle hills, the vineyards grow at an altitude that ranges between 200 and 450 metres, on clay soils rich in fossils set originally in sedimentary and volcanic rock.

As typically found with this exceptional family's wines, those made by Castello della Sala are also characterised by a philosophy that combines tradition and modernity without losing a single iota of quality. As proof of this, in addition to the cellars of the ancient medieval fortress, where the barrel ageing of the wines still takes place, a new modern wine-making room was built in 1985. Here special attention is given to the temperature in order to preserve the aromatic qualities of the grapes, another of this winery's distinctive features and not just one pertaining to Bramito del Cervo.

A Chardonnay in all its purity, straw-coloured with greenish flecks and a nose that offers a fascinating and complete bouquet of varietal notes (tropical and citrus fruits, peaches), dried herbs, and other notes imparted by its short stay in oak: sweet spices and hazelnuts in particular. Bramito del Cervo is a well-balanced wine with good structure, fresh and creamy at the same time, clear-cut, clean and with a pleasantly fruity finish.

Marchesi Antinori

Marchesi Antinori

The Antinori family has been dedicated to the production of wine for more than six hundred years: ever since, in 1385, Giovanni di Piero Antinori became a member of the winemakers guild - Arte Fiorentina dei Vinattieri. Throughout its long history, spanning 26 generations, the family has always managed this activity directly, making innovative and sometimes courageous choices, but always maintaining unaltered respect for tradition and for the territory. Today the company is...
