Syrah and Vermentino
In the heart of the Maremma is the Tenuta Ammiraglia Estate. Its vineyards draw an evocative geometry on the hills, skimming the nearby Tyrrhenian coast.
The growing season was characterised by heavy rainfall both at the end of autumn and during the winter, which contributed in keeping underground water levels well-supplied. When compared to previous years, budding began about a week late, but a favourable climate in April and May—as well as a very hot July mitigated by cooler evenings—accelerated the plants’ growth, allowing for an early veraison. The grapes’ ripening progressed softly due to a rainy August that lowered temperatures, resulting in a product distinguished by excellent aromatic polyphenols.
