SUNDAY MARCH 16th 2014
VISIT TO MODERN FRESCOBALDI CELLAR IN SOUTH OF TUSCANY, DESIGNED BY FAMED ARCHITECTS GRENON-SARTOGO
WINE MEETS ARCHITECTURAL MASTERY
Perfectly integrated in the hills of Magliano in Toscana, l’Ammiraglia is the modern and functional wine cellar commissioned by the Frescobaldi family to Sartogo Associates Architects. This stunning winery is completely sustainable and was built with materials extracted during the excavation. A pond of catchwater uses rainfall for irrigation when necessary, native plants and trees complete the landscape, and the roof incorporates vegetation to keep the cellar and winery cool. Designed to follow the lines of the landscape, the cellar and tasting room seem to disappear from the hillside from certain vantage points.
