Donna Olimpia 1898


Denominazione di Origine Controllata
Cabernet Sauvignon 100%
A solid 2019 Bolgheri Cabernet Sauvignon with medium body, super-integrated, firm tannins and a long, savoury finish. Beautifully crafted, refined and structured. Perfect to open in 2024, we expect it to have fantastic longevity due to its tannins. The winter of 2018 was very harsh, with several days when the temperature dropped below zero, which is absolutely rare in Bolgheri. A March characterised by frequent rains restored the soil's water reserves, which had been drastically reduced by the previous season's drought. Sprouting was slightly delayed, but the absolutely favourable climatic conditions from April onwards favoured growth, even leading to slightly earlier flowering. The summer heat that characterises the area lasted throughout July and the first half of August, when some rains finally lowered the temperatures. The good weather continued until the beginning of October. The grapes of this Campo alla Giostra 2019 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.
