Once harvested, the grapes to produce Vermentino Toscana “Massovivo” Frescobaldi 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. Vermentino Toscana “Massovivo” Frescobaldi was aged on fine lees, followed by further ageing in the bottle.
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.
