TASTING NOTES
Winter 2018 was very cold, with several days with the temperature below zero, which is absolutely rare in Bolgheri. A march marked by frequent rainy days restored the soil's water reserves, which has been drastically reduced by the previous season's drought. Germination took place slightly late, but the absolutely favorable climatic conditions from April onwards favored the growth, also leading to a slightly earlier flowering. The summer heat that characterizes the area lasted throughout the month of July and until the first half of August, when some rain finally lowered the temperatures. The good weather that lasted until the beginning of October guaranteed a balanced conclusion of the harvest which took place when the grapes were fully ripe, gradually, in the months of September and October. The grapes, selected in the vineyard, were brought to the cellar and vinified in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature, favoring the prolonged contact of the skins with the must. The malolactic fermentation takes place immediately after the alcoholic fermentation, also in the tanks. Aging is 24 months in French oak barrels (50% new, 50% one year) and 6 months in bottle. A serious red with a compact and fresh palate of blue fruit, berries and hints of toasted oak, smoke and chocolate. It is full-bodied with a tight palate and finely crafted tannins. An elegant Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. On top of that the Magnum bottle in a wooden case makes it a special 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.
