TASTING NOTES
Bolgheri Bianco 2021 is made from grapes cultivated in the vineyards of Donna Olimpia 1898 in Bolgheri (LI), located on the coastal strip of the Tyrrhenian Sea, lying on sandy-loam soil formed in a continental, aeolian and colluvial alluvial environment. The 2021 grape harvest was characterised by a mild and very wet winter, with temperatures that only rarely touched 0°C. The frost at the beginning of April ruined the first buds, but the vines reacted well and, thanks to the correct interventions in the countryside and the stable and warm spring, recovered quickly. The summer was dry and well ventilated, but with temperatures that were not excessive, except for a few brief periods. The drought lasted almost continuously from mid-May until the harvest in September, as is increasingly the case on this coast. The grapes, selected in the vineyard, were taken to the cellar to be vinified immediately. After crushing and decanting, alcoholic fermentation takes place in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. Once finished, a first racking is carried out, after which the wine remains on its fine lees (yeasts) for 14 months, undergoing repeated stirring (battonages) to suspend the yeasts deposited on the bottom. At the end of this long ageing period, the wine is cold stabilised and bottled. This technique makes the product more pleasant to the taste and very long-lived. Bright and lively straw yellow colour of medium intensity. Aromas of ground ginger, fresh fruit and flowers. Medium-bodied, with wet stone character. Crushed garden herbs. Green apple. Bright and with a refreshing 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.

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.
