Scabrezza is made exclusively from Pinot Bianco grapes. A pleasant, tasty wine with delicate aromas. The label is a tribute to Dante with one of the verses he dedicated to Beatrice in the Divine Comedy. The name Scabrezza is a old term that was used to measure the flow of water in rivers and streams, such as water flow in ancient drainage channels, weirs and clapper bridges that still exist today on the property.

La Braccesca, as an estate, extends over a total surface area of over 1255 acres (508 hectares) and consists of two separate vineyard blocks. The historical nucleus is located in Montepulciano with some 254 acres (103 hectares) planted to vines in the finest sub-zones for the production of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. The second block, planted to Syrah, possesses more than 585 acres (237 hectares) of vineyards and is situated at the foot of the hills which surround the city of Cortona. And it is precisely in this part of the estate that the grapes intended for Bramasole are cultivated.
The 2012 Bramasole shows an intense ruby red color. The nose is struck by the notes of ripe red fruit in excellent balance with the aromas of tobacco and spice. The palate is powerful and supple and with well balanced notes of liquorices and ripe fruit. The finish and aftertaste are soft, long, and persistent.

Favorable climatic conditions allowed the grapes to ripen regularly, unhurriedly, and uniformly, thereby enabling picking operations to go forward in a way which allowed the maximum attention to nuances and detailed differences in each and every single parcel of the Solaia vineyard.
The grapes, after being tasted and evaluated on the basis of their overall ripeness, the coloring material in their skins, and the maturity of their pips, were carefully picked by hand into small packing cases, separating the individual parcels from one another on the basis of all the varying viticultural and oenological criteria.

Antinori’s estate in Umbria boasts high altitude vineyards between 660-1325 feet above sea level on soils derived from sedimentary marine fossils mingled clay strati. Their flagship white, Cervaro della Sala is made here but so is this under the radar gem. Bramito del Cervo is 100% Chardonnay that is barrel fermented in French Allier and Toncais oak. The grapes soak on the skins initially and then after fermentation a portion of the wine is aged on the lees in stainless steel tanks while the rest ages an additional five months in oak. The result is a full spectrum Chardonnay with ripe tropical fruit aromas and flavors along with butterscotch, minerals and hints of toasty oak that linger in a lengthy finish.

The name Cervaro comes from the noble family that owned Castello della Sala during the 14th century, Monaldeschi della Cervara. A blend of Chardonnay grapes and a small quantity of Grechetto make a wine that can age over time and represent the elegance and complexity of this unique estate. Cervaro della Sala is one of the first Italian white wines to have malolactic fermentation and aging take place in barriques. The first vintage of Cervaro to be produced was the 1985 vintage.

Grapes were harvested and brought into the cellar for destemming and crushing. Maceration on the skins lasted for a period of 7 days at a temperature no higher than 28 °C (82 °F). After the first racking, both alcoholic fermentation and malolactic fermentation were completed before winter began. The wine was aged for 9 months in small oak barrels, both second and third fill, before bottling.

The first vintage to be produced was the 1990 vintage. The wine is made entirely with Pinot Nero grapes and is considered Cervaro’s alter ego: together they represent the two different expressions of Castello della Sala’s complex and refined spirit. Four hectares (10 acres) of Pinot Nero vineyards sit at an altitude of 400 meters (1312 feet) above sea level on calcareous soils rich in fossils with sedimentary sands from the Pliocene epoch.

The original Super-Tuscan, Tignanello is produced exclusively from the Tignanello vineyard, a 47 hectares (116 acres) southwest-facing, calcareous rocky-marl and limestone soil plot with tufaceous elements, planted between 1,150 and 1,312 feet above sea level at Antinori’s Santa Cristina Estate. It was the first Sangiovese to be aged in small oak barrels, the first red wine in modern times to use a non-traditional grape variety, Cabernet, in the blend, and among the first red wines made in Chianti with no white grapes. In all three instances, it set the example for a new breed of exceptional top-of-the-line Italian wine.

The winter of 2013 and the preceding autumn were characterized by above average rainfall and by temperatures which were not particularly cold, with the exception of one week during the month of February when there was heavy snowfall as well. Spring began with a climate which was much like the preceding months, determining important delays in bud burst, but despite this fact the successive phases of flowering and bud set saw normal growth and development.

The 2016 vintage, regular in its development and time span, will be remembered for the harvest of healthy and fully ripe grapes, favored by excellent climatic conditions during the entire growing season, particularly during the period of picking. Attention was nonetheless completely focused both in the vineyard and in the cellar where the grape berries were delicately destemmed and the grapes, before being crushed, were carefully selected on the sorting table.
