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.
A relatively dry and mild winter led to earlier budding than usual. The spring rainfall guaranteed excellent
water reserves during the long, dry summer with temperatures consistently exceeding 30°C, which guaranteed grapes in excellent health.
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
The berries were carefully selected and immediately pressed without any maceration, capturing just a hint
of the colour from the skins, resulting in the delicate rosé colour. The grapes were then fermented in
temperature controlled stainless steel for three months, retaining the purity of fruit and aromatic expression.
The wine did not go through malolactic fermentation. The Syrah was blended with a touch of Vermentino and
the wine spent one month in bottle, prior to release.
Refined and elegant, Alìe is characterised by its delicate rose colour and subtle peach highlights. Enveloping and
well rounded on the palate, with citrus notes of pink grapefruit and a hint of cherry underpinned by a streak of minerality. A beautifully balanced wine, with an intense and persistent finish.
Alìe partners beautifully with smoked fish, particularly salmon, as well as with prosciutto, lighter meats, poultry
and fish. It is particularly recommended with spicy dishes and Asian cuisine.
