Producer: The noble Bossi Fedrigotti family settled in Trentino in the early fifteenth
century, and made their first wine in 1697. After a seemingly quiet couple
of centuries, in 1961 they produced a startling innovation: Fojaneghe,
Italy’s first bordeaux blend. In 2007 the family began a collaboration
with Masi, who now distribute the wine as well as offering technical
support. The Fojaneghe blend remains the flagship, of course, while the
range also features blends of local varieties Traminer, Marzemino and
Teroldego, each contributing its own take on the perfumed, structured
Trentino style.

Vineyard: The grapes come from the commune of Pomarolo, which lies at 250-
320 metres above sea level. The soil is mostly chalk on basalt. Breezes
from Lake Garda bring useful temperature variation from night to day and
provide excellent ventilation.

Winery: Seventy percent of the grapes were vinified when freshly picked, while
thirty percent were dried for forty days to boost concentration and
complexity. The various components were fermented in stainless steel
tanks at up to 24ºC, and blended before transfer to oak barriques. The
wine matured in barrel for 6-8 months before bottling.

Taste: Vibrant blackberry and raspberry fruit combine with spicy and floral
aromas which lead on to a soft, medium-bodied palate with notes of
vanilla on the finish.
