Bramito del Cervo Castello della Sala 2021
The elements that characterized this vintage of Bramito del Cervo were the hot summer season, with temperatures slightly above average and lack of rain for a rather long period. Fortunately, thanks to a rainy winter, the vines have had the chance to "wake up" in a mild spring, with a good water reserve. The budding was earlier than last year, as was the flowering that began after mid-May, followed by an excellent fruit set. The vegetative cycle was favored by mild temperatures during the day and cool at night until July when they then increased. The drip irrigation allows to manage the possible water stress caused by the seasonal trend. The collection of Chardonnay for the Bramito began in mid-August.
