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
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.
