Marchesi de' Frescobaldi Ammiraglia Syrah 2011
|Brand||Marchesi de' Frescobaldi|
This meaty version offers dark, bittersweet chocolate, blackberry and spice flavors, with assertive oak and dense tannins. Best from 2016 through 2022.
The 2011 Ammiraglia, 100% Syrah from the Frescobaldi family's estate in Magliano, opens with a burst of dark red and black fruit. The style is extracted and fruit driven, with slight hints of over-ripeness, most likely from the warmth of the vintage. There is plenty of depth and intensity in the glass, even if the oak is a bit overpowering.
