TASTING NOTES
Here is a terrific new wine from Donna Olimpia 1898. The 2016 Orizzonte is a pure expression of Petit Verdot with very pretty balance and elegance. With fruit sourced from sandy limestone soils, the bouquet offers just a hint of nice evolution and some aged character. Dark fruit and dried blackberry cede to maraschino cherry and plum cake. There is a healthy dose of spice and smoke at the back, but it remains relegated to a supportive role. The wine ages in French oak for two years. The 2016 vintage is a limited release of 1,900 bottles, a pleasant surprise characterized by its razor-sharp focus. Alcoholic fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature, with the cap emerging with daily pumping over, and then continuing with the cap submerged in order to facilitate the extraction of color and aromas, prolonging the maceration for a few days. Malolactic fermentation takes place immediately after alcoholic fermentation. Aging is 24 months in French oak barrels (50% new, 50% one year) and 12 months in bottle.
ORIGIN OF THE NAME
Just as without land no new seed germinates, without past the future does not flourish. Look back, look forward. Look over your shoulder, look at the horizon. A double look even more felt by those who have left, by force or by choice, something important behind them. Setting out on a journey to a new horizon.

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.
