Tasting Notes For Antinori Castello della Sala Bramito Chardonnay 2018
Bramito della Salais produced from the vineyards surrounding the medieval castle at Castello della Sala. One variety that thrives in this terroir is Chardonnay. The vineyards are on soils rich in fossil deposits with veins of clay that give the wine minerality and elegance. Bramito della Sala’s firstvintage was 1994.
Overall climatic conditions for the 2018 vintage were cool with frequent rainfall that favored normal development of the vines’ growth cycle. January weather was mild with little rain.Cold temperatures and snowfall marked the end of February and the beginning of March, followed by higher than average rainfall that helped replenish groundwater reserves in the vineyards. Rain showers in spring and the beginning of summer slightly delayed berry development. Hot weather set in mid July throughout all of August, which combined with excellent temperature fluctuations between day and night, promoted slow regular berry ripening. Grapes were healthy,at peak maturity with an optimal aromatic profile and excellent freshness. Harvesting operations began at the end of August.
Bramito della Sala 2018 is bright yellow in color with greenish highlights. Complex and fresh on the nose, the wine offers delicate aromas of tropical fruit, pineapple and citrus fruit that blend with light sensations of hazelnut butter and vanilla. The palate has good structure, elegant and mineral; delicate notes of fruit reappear accompanied by excellent freshness and balance.
