Producer Note

The wines of Tenuta Ammiraglia represent the Frescobaldi’s expression of modern Tuscan wines: influenced and inspired by the Mediterranean sun, sea and coastal breezes. The modern Ammiraglia winery, designed by the architect Piero Sartogo, is reminiscent of the prow of a ship pointing towards the sea. Perfectly integrated amid the hills and covered with greenery, it combines the most recent technological innovations with respect for the land and surrounding nature. The wines of Tenuta Ammiraglia are distinguished by the freshness, minerality and richness of the fruit.

Vineyard

Located in Magliano in the Maremma on the southern tip of Tuscany, the Ammiraglia estate boasts 150 hectares of vineyards that blanket gently rolling hills overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea. In this area the amount of sun and reflected light reach the highest levels and together with the marine breezes create particularly favourable growing conditions. To enhance the unique character of this territory a reservoir was created to collect water and give freshness to the vineyards during the driest months of the year. The combination of all of these factors, impart the wines of Ammiraglia with exceptional richness and aromas that are unique to Maremma.

Winemaking

Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks at temperatures of approximately 30°C and lasted for 10 days. Post fermentation maceration lasted for 20 days, ensuring the desired levels of colour, flavour and structure was imparted to the wine. Malolactic fermentation took place and the wine was then aged for 24 months in oak barriques, with a further two months in bottle prior to release.

Tasting Note

A savoury and spicy wine with herbal nuances and a hint of violet. Elegant on the palate, with balanced acidity, firm tannins and full of character on the finish.

Serving Suggestion

An ideal match with a Florentine Steak; rich chicken or mushroom dishes; and pasta with a tomato based sauce.
