Winemaker Notes

Floral and fresh with rich melony fruit flavors and a brisk, elegant finish.

RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The irrepressible, outspoken, and iconoclastic Ales Kristancic is the force behind Quattro Mani 2007 [Toh-kai]. Ripe quince, Persian melon, vivid gunpowder, green tea, coriander, spearmint, and elusive but haunting floral perfume hover over the glass. This hits the palate juicily, softly, and demurely, but then it spreads out a veritable magic carpet of captivating flavors, among which quince, fig, white peach, green tea, sweet lime, and raw almond are discernable. I honestly couldn’t spit it or put down the glass! I just hope something remotely as intriguing and delicious was rendered under this label from 2008.

Quattro Mani, Italy
2007 Toh-Kai
Quattro Mani, or "four hands," showcases celebrity Italian winemakers who express the character and strength of Italy’s rich viticultural heritage, interpreted through their unique personalities. These winemakers were selected for their skill in allowing vineyards to speak through the wine, reflecting the belief that the essence of a region can be best expressed through its traditional wines. Quattro Mani wines are produced from estate-grown fruit using sustainable agriculture, and are bottled at the source.

Quattro Mani made its debut in 2006 with Montepulciano d’Abruzzo made by acclaimed winemaker Attilio Pagli. Quattro Mani [toh-kai], produced by the skilled hands of Movia’s Aleš Kristancic, followed in 2008. Tocai grapes are grown in Movia’s organically farmed Exto Gredic vineyard; the wine is made at the Movia winery in accordance with the biodynamic principles. Franciacorta, produced by the celebrated Franciacorta pioneer Emanuele Rabotti, joined the lineup in 2010. In 2011, Quattro Mani Barbera which is produced by the skilled winemaker Danilo Drocco who has been described as "One of the Great Names of Piedmontese Winemaking" by Robert Parker was launched.

Named “Oenotria” by the ancient Greeks for its abundance of grapevines, Italy has always had a culture that is virtually inextricable from wine. Wine grapes are grown just about everywhere throughout the country—a long and narrow boot-shaped peninsula extending into the Mediterranean and Adriatic Seas. The defining geographical feature of the country is the Apennine Mountain range, extending from Liguria in the north to Calabria in the south. The island of Sicily nearly grazes the toe of Italy’s boot, while Sardinia lies to the country’s west. Climate varies significantly throughout the country, with temperature being somewhat more dependent on elevation than latitude, though it is safe to generalize that the south is warmer. Much of the highest quality viticulture takes place on gently rolling, picturesque hillsides.

Italy boasts more indigenous varieties than any other country—between 500 and 800, depending on whom you ask—and most wine production relies upon these native grapes. In some regions, international varieties have worked their way in, but their use is declining in popularity, especially as younger growers begun to take interest in rediscovering forgotten local specialties. Sangiovese is the most widely planted variety in the country, reaching its greatest potential in parts of Tuscany. Nebbiolo is the prized grape of Piedmont in the northwest, producing singular, complex and age-worthy wines. Other important varieties include Montepulciano, Trebbiano, Barbera, Nero d’Avola, and of course, Pinot Grigio.

With hundreds of white grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to create complex wines with many different layers of flavors and aromas, or to create more balanced wines. For example, a variety that is soft and full-bodied may be combined with one that is lighter with naturally high acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
