Azienda Agricola L'Olivella, Frascati

This is a young and dynamic winery, that even if they are very innovative, keep their feet close to the land and the traditions of the Frascati wine area. L'Olivella was founded in 1986 by a wine expert from Puglia and an enologist from Piemonte, both having fallen in love with the Frascati area.
Since 2003 the whole production is biological, both in wine, which come from 12 hectares of vineyards, and in olives coming from 30 hectares of olive groves.
The soil is very rich in mineral salts making the conditions ideal for the vines and to further guarantee the wanted quality the production is reduced to between 7.000 and 8.000 kg. of grapes per hectare.
The production is a Frascati DOC Superiore and several IGT, both red and white. Special is the Bombino white and Racemo red, since they both are made from the red Bombino grapes. The L'Olivella also produce a Passito, a sweet dessert wine.

Additional information: Main products: Frascati DOC Superiore, Lazio IGT reds and whites mainly on local grapes, Vino Passito. Olive oil.
