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.
