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 2018 growing season was marked by abundant rainfall and a few snow storms during the winter, allowing for sufficient water reserves to be stored in the soil. Additional heavy rain in the spring caused a slight delay in sprouting. After this initial period, rising temperatures led to regular plant development. Very hot summer days contributed to excellent grape ripening and magnificent aromatic development. The sun and refreshing sea breezes of September were perfect companions during the harvest period, both leading to a compositional balance typical of this micro-climate. 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; then in the absence of oxygen, the bunches were loaded whole into the press. The pressure applied during this phase was of the utmost softness and delicacy. This process, together with the careful selection of the must and its subsequent decanting for no less than 12 hours, retained the maximum fruit flavours. Fermentation took place in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature of less than 20°C. The wine was aged on its fine lees for a few months, followed by a subsequent period in the bottle, prior to release.

Tasting Note

Mellow, fine and elegant, Alìe is characterised by its delicate rose colour and vibrant peach notes and subtle scents of rose. Enveloping and well rounded on the palate, with citrus notes of pink grapefruit and a tangy undertone that elegantly leads to a whirlwind of flavour sensations.
