ripeness and bunches carefully sorted and moved without delay to the cellar

for vinification.

WINE MAKING AND AGEING

The alcoholic fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at

controlled temperature, to allow long times of contact of the must

with the skins. Malolactic fermentation occurs immediately

after the alcoholic fermentation. Maturation is carried out for 12-14

months in French oak barrels, 50% new and 50% one year old,

followed by 6 months of bottle ageing.

TASTING NOTES

Ruby red, very deep colour with purple hues. On the nose, ample and clean,

with vibrant notes of cinnamon, blackberry, blueberry, pepperoni,

chocolate and liquorice.

It is well-structured, soft and very harmonious. Sweet tannins

and lingering jammy fruits round up the finish.

ORIGIN OF THE NAME

The name Donna Olimpia 1898, was given in 1898 to the estate in honour

of Gherardo della Gherardesca’s wife Olimpia Alliata of Biserno to

commemorate their twenty-fifth wedding anniversary.
