Bramito 2016 Chardonnay Umbria IGT Castello della SalaThe Antinori family has been involved in the production of wine for over six centuries. Castello della Sala estate was purchased by the Antinori family in 1940. Today the Marchese Antinori winery is run by Albiero Antinori with the support of her sisters Allegra and Alessia. Although the wine bottle label does not have the Antinori name prominently displayed, there is no doubt this is an Antinori wine.

This Umbria IGT wine is 100 percent Chardonnay and it is a beauty. The first vintage of Bramito was produced in 1994, and its popularity has never waned. Nota Bene: this is not your typical, over-oaked Chardonnay. It is pure Italian in nature. Straw yellow in color, with aromas of tropical fruit with a hint of citrus fruit,it is well balanced, has great mouthfeel, and is extremely food friendly.

For the entire month of September 2017 we are offering the Bramito 2016 at the reduced price of $36 per 750 ml bottle or $9 per glass. I think you will like this wine.
