Bottle size and vintage
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.

Beautifully crafted 100% Chardonnay from the magnificent Castello della Sala. Wonderfully bright, slightly floral, with balanced oak notes giving it a savoury finish. This is a real treat!by: Bee T (09/05/2017) - Vintage 2016
Cervaro's little brother
Not as incredible as the cult Cervaro but still absolutely delicious and a fraction of the price. Interesting, complex chardonnay.by: Attilio (01/05/2017) - Vintage 2016
