Alie Rose Toscana IGT 2019
Made from Syrah with a touch of Vermentino. The Tenuta di Ammiraglia (from Frescobaldi) Alìe is a refined and elegant wine. Alìe 2018 stands out for its extreme sensuality. Its pale pink colour with peach nuances immediately expresses its intriguing personality.
The sharp and unmistakable bouquet floods the senses with intoxicating Mediterranean aromas. Fragrances of September peach bursts forth followed by floral notes. Subtle scents of rose, marasca cherries and white melon fruit notes. The result is an extremely mellow, fine and elegant nose. In the mouth, the fruity notes return, with the addition of captivating touches of citrus such as pink grapefruit. Little by little, a tangy undertone elegantly makes its entrance into this whirlwind of flavour sensations.
The 2019 growing season varied greatly. After a cold, dry winter, the plants began growing very early, starting in March. The coldest and rainiest period in late spring slightly slowed down the growth of the vines and resulted in the water reserves being restored in preparation for what was to be a hot summer. When it came time to harvest the grapes, the vineyards were in excellent physiological shape. The favourable summer weather conditions resulted in very healthy grapes with excellent phenolic ripeness and exquisite aromas.
