Castello della Sala 2021 Chardonnay Bramito del Cervo by Antinori
"This medium-bodied white is enlivened by tangy acidity, offering an expressive range of steeped peach, kumquat, candied ginger and lime blossom. Snappy and well-balanced, with a salty, mineral-laced finish. Drink now through 2023. 10,000 cases imported. " Wine Spectator 90 Points
Marchesi Antinori’s estate in Umbria is a revolutionary force for the region. The amazingly successful Cervaro della Sala has arguably done more to raise the image of Italian white wine than any other single bottle. Winemaker Renzo Cotarella grew up near Castello della Sala and enjoys a deeply personal relationship to this estate.
"The 2019 Bramìto della Sala lifts from the glass with a strikingly fresh and perfumed bouquet, showing smoky stone dust and young peach with hints of lime and yellow flowers. Soft textures wash across the palate, soothing yet also leaving a sizzle of brisk acids and minerals and creating a juicy and tactile expression. The finish is medium in length yet vibrant, resonating on notes of lemony citrus and tart apple. This is a beautiful and mouthwatering Umbrian Chardonnay." 89 Points, Eric Guido for Vinous
