When I first tasted this with Coravin we were sure it had TCA, but it wasn’t excessively bitter or astringent and it had plenty of rich ripe black fruit...so I uncorked it today and the cork definitely smells of old winery, old church and almost pine trees but I wouldn’t call it corked cork. Even with the cork issue the wine has a smooth oily attack and firm fine-grained tannins. I am thoroughly enjoying it. #bolgheri #tuscany #italy #supertuscan The winery should definitely look into their cork provider. — a year ago
A more snappy and jovial interpretation of red wine from #Bolgheri territory. Donna Olimpia is the estate of Guido Folonari.
#CabernetSauvignon is about 70% of the #CostaToscana fruity lively youthful blend with medium aromas of sour cherry combined with a deeper subtext cassis and ground pepper and chocolate and liquorice, from oak aged #Merlot.
On the palate too its youthfulness Thanks to the delicate aroma of Petit Verdot, is pleasant and immediate, with good structure and roundness. The tannin is medium and well integrated. This wine is versatile and perfect for that first glass, tapas and BTG. #italy #tuscany — 2 years ago
Muted nose of twig and tight cherry, cranberry and allspice. Dense black, ripe and dried cherry with leather cedar and clove, a dried blackberry component, very clean tobacco note, rosemary, and thyme. Cascading layers of coffee, oak, raspberry.
