The initial vintage of Ammiraglia was 2006. Made one hundred per cent from Syrah grapes grown in limestone-clay soils rich in pebble and rock, its soul is the most Mediterranean of all of the Frescobaldi estates. It is an emphatic, full-bodied wine boasting impressive, well-ripened fruit and pungent spice.
The history of the Frescobaldi family starts over a thousand years ago and is closely connected with the history of Tuscany. At the high point of medieval Florence, the Frescobaldis spread their influence as bankers, earning the title of treasures to the English crown. A little later, with the flowering of the Renaissance, they became patrons of major works in Florence, such as the construction of the Santa Trinita bridge and the Basilica of Santo Spirito.
