TASTING NOTES
Deep and powerful on the nose, this Bolgheri Rosso 2021 Donna Olimpia offers aromas of sweet berries and tobacco with hints of flowers, such as rose. Full-bodied, with firm, creamy tannins and a fresh finish. Best from 2024. The 2021 vintage was characterised by a mild and very wet winter, with temperatures only rarely touching 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 a 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 uninterruptedly from mid-May until the harvest in mid-September, as is increasingly the case on this coast. The harvest took place at full ripeness between mid-September and mid-October. The grapes, selected in the vineyard, are then taken to the cellar to be vinified. Alcoholic fermentation takes place in temperature-controlled stainless steel wine vats, favouring prolonged contact of the skins with the must. Malolactic fermentation takes place immediately after alcoholic fermentation. Ageing is for 12-14 months in French oak barrels (50% new, 50% one year old) and 6 months in bottles.

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.
