Deep ruby red colour with purple hues. Clean ample bouquet on the nose with notes of small red fruits, pepperoni, chocolate and liquorice. Soft, well-structured and very harmonius with sweet tannins and lingering fruit in the finish.

As the story goes, the etruscans living in the Tuscan area learnt the proper way to cultivate vines and olive trees from Tagete, a mysterous youngster arisen from the furrow of Tarconte’s plough.
The estate bears the name “Donna Olimpia 1898”. In 1898, Gherardo della Gherardesca gave the name of his wife, Olimpia Alliata, Lady of Biserno, to the estate to celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary. The estate covers an area of about 60 hectares and is located in the DOC Bolgheri. It stretches over a land strip that runs from Km 167.8 of the Aurelia road inward for about 1.2 km. The morphology of the terrain is flat and is made out of 40 hectares of vineyards and some arable land.
