Donna Olimpia 1898


Denominazione di Origine Controllata
Cabernet Sauvignon 100%
A nice, pure cabernet sauvignon with berry and sweet tobacco aromas, as intense as a cigar box and spice. Hints of licorice. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and plenty of structure. Perfect to open in 2023, we expect it to have fantastic longevity due to its tannins. Winter 2018 was harsh with several days of sub-zero temperatures, something that hadn't happened for several years. everything was characterized by frequent rains, which lasted even in spring, which restored the natural reserves of the area, partly in February and by the drought of 2017. The budding therefore took place late, but the weather conditions were very good from April to then they preferred growth, also bringing a slightly early flowering. The classic summer heat that never fails in Bolgheri manifested itself throughout the month of July and in the first half of August, until some rain lowered the temperature, cooling the plants. The good weather that lasted until September ensured a balanced conclusion of the harvest. The grapes of this Campo alla Giostra 2018 were harvested at full ripeness at the end of September to maximize the fruity potential of the grapes. The grapes, selected in the vineyard, were then taken to the cellar to be vinified. Alcoholic fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature, with the cap emerging with daily pumping over, then continues with the cap submerged in order to favor the extraction of color and aromas, prolonging the maceration for about ten days. Malolactic fermentation occurs immediately after alcoholic fermentation. Aging is 18 months in French oak barrels (50% new, 50% one year) and 6 months in bottle.
The name Campo alla Giostra "dei cavalli" is in honor of the 20th general of Varenne, born in 1995, who was raised by Dubois in the stables of the Estate.

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.
