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.
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.
The grapes went through a partial cryomaceration. The fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks, preserving the aromatics. Maceration lasted for 10 days and the wine did not go through malolactic fermentation. The wine was then matured for four months in tank and one month in bottle before release.
An impressive bouquet of fragrant jasmine and white fleshed fruit is enhanced by elegant touches of freshly-picked Mediterranean sage. Delicate, the wine shows a lovely softness, with beautifully balancing acidity through to a persistent finish.
Delicious with shellfish and fresh seafood dishes or vegetarian starters.
