Xavier Flouret Quattro Canti 2007
WINEMAKER: Stefania Lena WINERY: Fatascià HISTORY: Fatascià was created in 2000 by Stefania Lena and Giuseppe Natoli, out of their passion for wine and experience in the wine industry. Working closely from the start with world-renowned oenologist Riccardo Cotarella, Lena and Giuseppe believe that innovation is key and strive to reveal the Sicilian terroir through their wines. VITICULTURE & VINIFICATION: The vines are planted at a density of 4,000 vines per hectare and yield 40 Hl / hectare. Nero d’Avola vines are 10 years old and Cabernet Franc’s are 6 years old. Harvest is done by hand and grapes undergo a traditional red maceration on the skin for 20 days along with a malolactic fermentation. The wine is not filtered before the bottling.
Xavier Flouret Wines, founded by Xavier Flouret in 2008, is a collection of boutique wines from around the world. Each award-winning wine embodies the character of that wine’s region, which is important when developing a carefully selected portfolio of varietals. Each bottle features an "X" design on the front and information about the winemaker and the winery on the back, complete with food pairing recommendations.
