The berries to produce Toscana Rosé “Alìe Ammiraglia” Frescobaldi 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. The Toscana Rosé “Alìe Ammiraglia” Frescobaldi 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.
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.
