Bolgheri Bianco 2020 is obtained from the grapes of the Donna Olimpia 1898 vineyards located in Bolgheri (LI), located on the coastal strip of the Tyrrhenian Sea, lying on a sandy, silty soil formed in a continental, aeolian, colluvial environment. During the winter, the climate was mild and rainy, with temperatures rarely close to 0 ° C. A nationwide lockdown was imposed in March but the buds took their time and blossomed in the last week of the month, thus giving time to prepare and organize to operate safely. From April to the end of May the weather was perfect, with hot and mostly dry days, while June was rather rainy, with the development of the vines accelerating. Hot and dry July, a fundamental condition for the triggering of the veraison which developed promptly and slowly towards the end of the month. In August, temperatures increased further, for a total of 47 days above 30 ° C throughout the season, with frequent peaks of 36 ° / 37 ° C which made this summer in fact comparable to that of 2015. Fortunately, the high temperatures Daytime temperatures at night dropped below 20 ° C, allowing the grapes to develop their aromatic potential and maintain good acidity. In the last days of August, the rains arrived in time to relieve excess water stress and lower temperatures. In mid-September a sudden heat wave increased the sugar levels but partly involved the Vermentino which was being harvested right at the turn of those days. The grapes, selected in the vineyard, are then taken to the cellar to be immediately vinified. After pressing and decanting, the alcoholic fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks 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 pumping over (battonages) to suspend the yeasts deposited on the bottom. At the end of this long aging, the wine is cold stabilized and bottled. This technique makes the product more pleasant to the taste and very long-lived.

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.
