TASTING NOTES
Tageto is made from grapes from the vineyards of Donna Olimpia 1898 located in Bolgheri (LI) one of Italy's most iconic wine-growing areas, growing on sandy loamy soil on the coastal strip of the Tyrrhenian Sea. The spring was finally mild after five years of frost. Summer was very hot and dry. The drought lasted almost continuously from April to August, as is often the case in this area. In 2022, unlike the previous year, there were rains, which often cooled and provided some water later in the summer. Thanks to delayed pruning and tillage to discourage grass growth, the harvest was delayed slightly, allowing the plants to benefit from the rains. Harvesting began on 30 August when the grapes were fully ripe. They were selected directly in the vineyard and then taken to the cellar for vinification. Alcoholic fermentation takes place in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats, which favours prolonged contact of the skins with the must. Malolactic fermentation takes place at the end of September, immediately after alcoholic fermentation. The wine is aged for 4-6 months in French oak barrels (50% new, 50% one year old) and 6 months in bottle. Intense ruby-garnet colour with clear violet reflections; clean, broad nose with notes of red berries, pepper, chocolate and liquorice; very harmonious taste with good structure and a very persistent, sweet finish. The initial impression of the 2022 vintage is that it will be a superb year for all of the wines crafted by Donna Olimpia 1898.
ORIGIN OF THE NAME
According to legend, the Etruscan people, who occupied the Tuscan lands, learned from a mysterious child named Tageto, born from the furrow of the plow used by Tarconte, the way of cultivating the vine and the olive tree.

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.
