Denominazione di Origine Controllata
Vermentino, Viognier, Petit Manseng
Bolgheri Bianco 2019 is obtained from grapes from the Donna Olimpia 1898 vineyards located in Bolgheri (LI), located on the coastal strip of the Tyrrhenian Sea, lying on a silty sandy soil formed in a continental, wind, colluvial environment. The harvest takes place at full maturity in September. The grapes, selected in the vineyard, are then taken to the cellar to be vinified immediately. After pressing and decanting, alcoholic fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature, once this is completed, a first racking is carried out, after which the wine rests on the fine lees (yeasts) for 14 months undergoing repeated stirring (battonages) in order to suspend the yeasts deposited on the bottom. At the end of this long aging period, the wine is cold stabilized and bottled. This technique makes the product more pleasant to the taste and very long-lived. Brilliant and lively straw yellow color of medium intensity. Ample net aroma with mineral notes, citrus, white flowers, candy and honey. Full, savory taste with a persistent and pleasant finish.
ORIGIN OF THE NAME
The name of Donna Olimpia 1898 is in honor of Olimpia Alliata Signora di Biserno and wife of Gherardo della Gherardesca, who baptized the estate in 1898 on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of their wedding.
