TASTING NOTES
Deep and powerful on the nose it offers notes of black plums, blackberries, sandalwood and cumin. Many cherries in alcohol dominate the secondary scene. Medium body, slightly herbaceous tannins and a finish of good persistence. Better from 2022. The harvest takes place at full ripeness in the months of September and October. The grapes, selected in the vineyard, are then taken to the cellar to be vinified. Alcoholic fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature, favoring the prolonged contact of the skins with the must. Malolactic fermentation takes place immediately after alcoholic fermentation. Aging is 12-14 months in French oak barrels (50% new, 50% one year old) and 6 months in the bottle.
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.

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.
