Description

Antinori is the most famous name in Italian wine and the influence of Piero Antinori in the last 25 years has been nothing short of revolutionary.

Castello della Sala is located in the Umbria region, not far from the Tuscan border, about 18 kilometers from the historic city of Orvieto. The Medieval castle’s property extends over an area of 500 hectares, 170 hectares are planted with vineyards at an altitude that varies between 220 and 470 meters above sea level on the gently rolling hillsides that characterize the beautiful countryside in this area.

Bramito (translates to 'roar of the boar') is the little brother of Cervaro della Sala, made from 100% Chardonnay. Parts were aged in stainless, parts in oak. This is of vibrant starbright pale golden colour; the nose displays melted butter, subtle white pepper as well as juicy white peach and stone fruit along with bayleaf and hints of other dried herbs. Dry on the palate it has medium body and on the palate there is more of a vanilla spice noticeable. Balanced with good, medium acidity, this has a mineral, almost saline edge to it with smooth texture from lees ageing.
