Viña Falernia winemaker Giorgio Flessati was also there to show a range of Elqui Valley wines, wich brougth back memories of visiting the lush oasis he grows his grapes in. One of is up-and-coming-bestsellers is its ELKI PEDRO XIMENEZ 2010 (rrp £ 5,23) , wich displays a mixture of stone fruits, savoury characters and a good minerality.
One unconventional pioneer is Giorgio Flessati of Viña Falernia in Elqui Valley, a full five hours north of Santiago and one of the world's highest wine regions. The Italian native (who also makes wine in Italy and Russia) started here in 1999 after visiting his cousin, one of the largest pisco producers in the area. Flessati wanted to use traditional pisco grapes Pedro Ximenez, Torontel and Moscatel for quality table wine.
Flessati works with traditional varieties as well, including an outstanding Sauvignon Blanc and an award-winning Syrah. But there's nothing typical about his Carmenère, which he crafts in the style of Italian Amarone, or his Ripasso-style Syrah-Carmenère blend: "The soft tannins and high acidity of Carmenère lends itself well to the Amarone style.
"My wines are different from all others in Chile", proclaimed winemaker Giorgio Flessati. "It's a combination of different fruit from the Elqui and my Italian winemaking background".

Giorgio Flessati is the ..., 5 Dec 2010 [cached]
Giorgio Flessati is the winery's co-founder and hails from Trentino in northern Italy where he was winemaker, then general manager, of a winery called Concilio. He has also made wine in Alsace, Bordeaux and Burgundy, and consulted for wineries in Moldova, Austria, Tuscany and Sicily. Flessati's career in South America began in 1995 when he visited his cousin Aldo Olivier, who had moved to Chile from Italy as a child. At the time, Elqui's grape production was only used for pisco, the national spirit, but Flessati, bringing all his experience to bear, immediately spotted the potential of the region and, along with his cousin, began to put the building blocks of Falernia in place.
