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 growing season varied greatly. After a harsh, dry winter, the vines began
growing very early, starting in March. A cold, rainy period followed, which slightly
slowed the growth of the vines but resulted in the water reserves being restored in
preparation for what was to be a hot, and on some days extremely hot, summer.
The vineyards reacted well and when it came time to harvest, the grapes were in
excellent physiological shape. The excellent weather conditions during summer
resulted in very healthy grapes with superb phenolic ripeness and exquisite aromas.


Vineyard
In the heart of the Maremma is the Tenuta Ammiraglia Estate, where its vineyards
draw an evocative geometry on the hills, skimming the nearby Tyrrhenian coast. The
vineyards are warmed by the sun, mitigated by the sea's breezes. Enormous
yellowish rocks characterise the landscape in which the Tenuta dell'Ammiraglia lies;
emerging from the earth they are known as "massi vivi", living rocks, providing the
origins of this wine's name.


Winemaking
Once harvested, the grapes were swiftly transported to the cellar where they were
gently pressed. The must obtained underwent a cold static decanting process for
approximately 12 hours, imbuing them with refinement and elegance. Fermentation
took place in stainless steel vats at controlled temperatures. The wine was aged on
fine lees, followed by further ageing in the bottle.


Tasting Note
Massovivo immediately stands out for its delicacy, opening with elegant floral and
citrus scents, giving way to notes of ripe white-fleshed fruit and elegant touches of
freshly-picked Mediterranean sage. The rich palate is beautifully balanced by
vibrancy and freshness.
