Frescobaldi Ammiraglia Massovivo Vermentino

The Vermentino Maremma from Tenuta dell'Ammiriglia is planted in rich chalk-sandstone galestro soils which produce a wonderfully complex, balanced wine. The delightful flavours of honey and tropical fruit combine with a soft almond aftertaste to produce a very interesting wine which is better served with food as opposed to being drunk on it's own. The perfect matches are white fish, calamari and pesto based dishes.
