Frescobaldi Tenuta Ammiraglia Terre More Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 - Wine

Tasting Notes

Wonderful aromas of deep, dark fruits- blackberry and blackcurrant give way to spiced notes of liquorice and vanilla. Enveloping and beautifully complex, with fine and elegant tannins and a deliciously, long finish.

Production Notes

The grapes were harvested at optimum maturity. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 28°C. Maceration on the skins lasted for 13 days and malolactic fermentation took place immediately after the initial fermentation. The wine was matured for 12 months in second and third passage large oak barrels, prior to being bottled.

Critics Reviews

Vinous 89pts (2016) - The 2016 Terre More, from the Frescobaldi family's Tenuta dell'Ammiraglia, is a bold, juicy wine to drink now and over the next few years, while the succulent dark cherry fruit, cola, spice and savory herb notes retain their youthful vibrancy.

Producer Profile

The wines of Tenuta Ammiraglia represent the Frescobaldi’s expression of modern Tuscan wines: influenced and inspired by the Mediterranean sun, sea and coastal breezes. The modern Ammiraglia winery, designed by the architect Piero Sartogo, is reminiscent of the prow of a ship pointing towards the sea. Perfectly integrated amid the hills and covered with greenery, it combines the most recent technological innovations with respect for the land and surrounding nature. The wines of Tenuta Ammiraglia are distinguished by the freshness, minerality and richness of the fruit.
