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.

Vintage

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.

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

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.

Tasting Note

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.

Serving Suggestion

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.
