Wine Notes

2015 was the first vintage for this silky 100% Petit Verdot Super Tuscan and 2015 was a great vintage to start on. It is approaching its drinking window now but we expect it to develop well for at least another 10 years.

We would recommend buying a case before it is noticed by the reviewers…

Producer Notes

Donna Olimpia is well placed to challenge the leaders in the Super Tuscan market, their immediate neighbours being Tenuta San Guido (Sassicaia) to the North and Marchesi Antinori (Tignanello and Solaia) to the South.

Whilst we have enjoyed a number of older vintages, particularly the 2009 and 2013, of Donna Olimpia’s flagship Super Tuscan, Millepassi, it has not quite lived up to its prestigious neighbours. In the last few years things have been improving though: the 2015 and 2016 Millepassis were excellent and the introduction of the 100% Petit Verdot Orizzonte in 2015 is putting Donna Olimpia on the up.

There is also always good value to be found in good vintages amongst their entry level wines, and particularly in their Bolgheri Bianco (a blend of Vermentino, Viognier, and Petit Manseng), which is excellent value even in weaker vintages.

One to watch over the next few years, we think.
