Antinori Castello della Sala Bramìto Chardonnay 2020

Bramito is the estate’s 100% Chardonnay and its first vintage dates back to 1994. The grapes are from younger
Chardonnay vines on the estate, sitting on soils rich in fossil deposits with veins of clay that give this wine minerality
and elegance. The juice is only part barrel fermented, with malolactic fermentation lending a luscious creamy texture
and flavour to the wine.

Bramito is straw yellow in color with pale greenish highlights. On the nose it is delicate with notes of ripe
exotic fruit with light citrusysensations. The palate is elegant with good structure accompanied by excellent
freshnessand asapid finish with pleasurable notes ofvanillaand hazelnut butter.

Antinori Castello della Sala Bramìto Chardonnay 2020

Winter weather was mild and sunny while spring saw lower than
average temperaturesand frequent rain showers. These
climatic conditions persisted up until the end of Mayand
affected bud break ofall grape varieties, causing a delay of
approximately 10 days. The month of June brought dry
weather; the vines benefitted from generous groundwater
reservesand maintained good vine balance even during the hot
month of August, conditions thatallowed complete veraison
and aslow regular ripening phase. Optimal temperature swings
between dayand night produced grape clusters that were
healthyand rich in aromatic compounds. Harvesting activities
began at the end of August with berries that were healthyand
ripe, characterized by excellent freshnessand an outstanding
aromatic profile.

Grapes were brought to the cellar, destemmed and gently crushed. The mustand the skins were chilled to a
temperature of 10 °C (50 °F)and transferred to stainless steel tanks forashort period of maceration,
approximately 2-4 hours, in order to enhance flavorsand extract the grape variety’saromatic profile. The different
lots were treated separately, some went into oak and some into stainless steelvats where alcoholic fermentation
occurred ata controlled temperature of di 16-18 °C (61-64 °F); onlythe oak fermented lots underwent malolactic
fermentation. The wine was then blended and bottled.
