About the winemakersOlivini
Absolute respect for the unique character of the grapes and the development of new and different production methods for each grape variety are two essential elements of the Olivini family's wine philosophy. In the beautiful hillsides around the town of Desenzano del Garda in the classic Lugana area, the magnificent autochthonous variety Trebbiano di Lugana, here also known as Turbiano, is the main actress in the vine portfolio on clayey and calcareous marl. The pretty winery from the small municipality of San Martino della Battaglia, which has been active in professional viticulture since 1970, is now managed with great passion and commitment by Giorgio, Giordana and Giovanni Olivini.
The sibling trio had initially practised viticulture as a hobby, but then transformed the land holdings of their parents Graziella and Giulio into a modern winery and continued the long-standing viticultural tradition of their grandparents. With a dozen wines stamped by the oenologist and Turbiano expert Antonio Crescini, the young winemakers, whose first names, like those of their ancestors, bear the letter "G" the northern Italian winery on the top floor of the Lombard wine shop.
The estate, situated in the middle of the fascinating panorama of Lake Garda, regularly invests in new technologies and in the expansion of the wine cellar. Under the expert supervision of Crescinis, the grapes, harvested by hand and transported to the farm in small crates, are transformed into wines that are pleasing in their filigree texture and intensity. The white wines of Olivini convince with elegant fruity notes, mineral freshness and a considerable length.
After four years of experimentation, the time had come: in addition to Lugana Brut, a Spumante Rosé pressed from Barbera, Marzemino, Sangiovese and Groppello - all native grape varieties of Lake Garda - and also produced according to the classic method of bottle fermentation, was launched on the market. The winemaker from the province of Brescia has thus succeeded in creating a symbiosis with its sparkling wines from the region and its own grapes, supplemented by modern production technology.
From its oldest vineyards, the Olivini family has selected the best clones in terms of aroma and acidity structure; the buds of the precious plant material have been grafted and propagated. The new vines will serve to preserve and optimize the Lugana's vine variety treasure. SUPERIORE.DE
