Donna Olimpia 1898


The production area runs parallel to the beaches of northern Maremma, located in the province of Livorno, in the county of Castagneto Carducci. To the east a chain of hills runs parallel to the beach, between Bibbona and Castagneto, the vineyards and olive groves are protected from the cold winds from the north, which often cause devastating frost during winter. In summer, however, this corridor is crossed by refreshing winds that are generated between the valleys of river Cecina to the north and river Cornia to the south. The cool winds that come from the sea and the discrete temperature ranges of August and September contribute to a slow and regular ripening of all the qualitative components of the grape, sugars, polyphenols and aromas, and help maintaining a high acidity, which is necessary to give balance to the wines.
