TASTING NOTES
Both winter and spring temperatures in the 2019 vintage were cooler than usual. The vegetative cycle, which started late, then accelerated from the end of May when temperatures rose rapidly. The summer weather was sunny and stable until the end of the harvest, which was excellent in all respects. The healthy, ripe grapes, previously selected in the vineyard, were brought to the cellar and vinified in stainless steel wine vats at a controlled temperature, favouring prolonged contact of the skins with the must. Malolactic fermentation takes place immediately after alcoholic fermentation, also in tanks. Ageing is for 24 months in French oak barrels (50% new, 50% one-year old) and 6 months in bottles. The wines of the 2019 Bolgheri vintage are very balanced and already show great ageing potential. Definitely one of the best Bolgheri vintages, on a par with iconic vintages such as 1998, 2008, 2015. A serious red with a compact, fresh palate of blue fruit, berries and hints of toasty oak, smoke and chocolate. It is full-bodied with a tight palate and finely crafted tannins. A very elegant Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. This Millepassi Magnum 2019 is sold with its original wooden box, making this bottle perfect as an important gift.
ORIGIN OF THE NAME
Millepassi is produced by the vineyards located in Bolgheri in Migliarini, the toponym originates from "milium" measure Roman itinerary, corresponding to a thousand steps (m 1480), and had been attributed to the farm, because it was crossed by the ancient Via Emilia.

Donna Olimpia 1898

Donna Olimpia 1898 Discover Tenuta Donna Olimpia 1898 in Tuscany and its fine wines in our online store Of ancient and noble origins, the Donna Olimpia 1898 estate was baptized in the same year in honor of Olimpia Alliata, Lady of Biserno and wife of Gherardo della Gherardesca on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of their wedding. Located in the heart of Bolgheri , in the province of Livorno, spread over 60 hectares, 45 of which are new vineyards planted following a study on clones and rootstocks. The vines planted are obviously those whose vocation has been widely demonstrated: Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Syrah and Petit Verdot; for white wines, on the other hand, Vermentino, Viognier and Petit Manseng. Gifts of a unique territory, Donna Olimpia 1898's wines are characterized by their minerality, harmonic structure and intrinsic elegance. The estate boasts a modern cellar of 5000 square meters, designed to maximize energy savings and minimize environmental impact. It is equipped with the best available production technology, but still the aging in wood takes place in French oak barriques, so traditional. The barrel room is certainly the most important and evocative environment of the entire wine estate.
