Wine Notes

Decanter review May 2020: “96 pts. An enticing kaleidoscope of aromas: wild berries, cassis, incense, Mediterranean scrub, white pepper. Then a palate with great fresh impact and layered, velvet- textured progression, lots of flesh on the finish. Drink 2020-2030 Alc 15%”

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.
