2017/19 Calabria I.G.T ‘Settemari’

$35.00

Fattoria San Francesco has produced an elegant expression of Settemari I.G.T, with a straw yellow colour whose greenish tint alludes to freshness.

A light and delicate bouquet meets the nose; grapefruit mixes with cut grass, citrus, sage and rosemary notes as well as white flower and citrus peel nuances.

To taste, you’ll find good freshness, fruit with citrus notes. The flavours have good balance and lasting aromatic depth.

A wine to match to entrée dishes with a base of seafood, shellfish, cheese and herbs. Well suited to appetisers and aperitivo hour.

The translation of this wine’s name is ‘Seven Seas’ and makes reference to the sparkling Calabrian coastline so close to the vineyards of Fattoria San Francesco. This white is indeed reminiscent of that nostalgic scene, a breath of fresh air amongst many other whites.

The Winery

Fattoria San Francesco is located in Quattromani in the D.O.C. region of Cirò in Calabria, surrounded by gentle slopes overlooking the Ionian Sea and vineyards, in the heart of an area traditionally suited to viticulture.

 

The Estate of Fattoria San Francesco finds its origins in the foundation of a convent of monks in 1578, where vineyards were placed in all their surrounding lands.

 

The convent was suppressed by a decree of the King Ferdinando IV on 30 October 1770. After this resolution, the convent’s assets, including the factories, were exhibited at auction and on 14 July 1777 sold to Don Benedetto Siciliani.
From those vineyards, still today, the wines of Fattoria San Francesco are produced.

 

In every wine of Fattoria San Francesco there is a centuries-old commitment to the year 1777, when the Siciliani Family won the convent at auction San Francesco founded by the monk De Paola.

Dr. Francesco Siciliani, the last descendant of a family of winemakers, continued the family tradition, creating, in the midst of vineyards and olive groves, a modern cellar with cutting-edge winemaking methods.

 

In 2013, Fattoria San Francesco was taken over by the Iuzzolini family who continued its philosophy by reconciling the most modern winemaking techniques with the two-thousand-year-old wine traditions of the area. With a renewed range of wines of absolute quality, modern and young, the new Fattoria San Francesco immediately enters the high-end market, skipping the large-scale distribution and positioning itself in that niche of excellent products. They have enjoyed numerous International wine awards in recent years.
