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.
Gambero Rosso awarded Frescobaldi with the prestigious ‘Tre Bicchieri Winery of the
Year Award 2020’, in recognition of its uncompromising commitment to quality and
innovation.


Vintage
The 2019 season was marked by a relatively dry autumn and winter with
temperatures slightly above seasonal averages, leading to early sprouting of new
shoots on the vines. Flowering also began a few days early in comparison to previous
seasons. The spring rains ensured the vines had the necessary water reserves for the
entire summer, which was extremely dry with temperatures constantly above 30°C,
with a few localised rainy spells. The alternation of these events resulted in an
excellent harvest, with perfectly ripened grapes.


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 soil in the vineyard is sandy and clay, with a good
depth and has a marginally high acidity. The combination of all of these factors,
impart the wines of Ammiraglia with exceptional richness and aromas that are
unique to Maremma.


Winemaking
The grapes were harvested at optimum maturity, destemmed and fermented in
stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperatures. Maceration on the skins lasted for
two weeks, extracting aromas, flavour, colour and fine tannins. The wine was
matured for 12 months in French oak barriques of second and third passage,
followed by further bottle ageing.


Tasting Note
Elegant and vibrant complexity on the nose with notes of deep, dark fruits,
blackberry and plum give way to spiced notes of liquorice and vanilla. Silky and
balanced with a freshness that envelopes the fine and integrated tannins and a
deliciously, long and fruity finish.
