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 Fojaneghe estate, which lies at 300 metres above sea level in the communes of Mori and Isera. The soil is mostly basalt and limestone. Breezes from Lake Garda bring useful temperature variation from night to day and provide excellent ventilation. The harvest began in early September.

Winery
After destemming, the various components were fermented in stainless steel tanks at up to 26oC, with a total maceration time of twenty-five days. The wine then completed malolactic fermentation in tank, and was racked to French oak barriques for eighteen months’ maturation.

Taste
Blueberry and plum fruit meets savoury notes of spice and new leather on the nose. The palate is structured yet harmonious, with well-judged vanilla oak and great persistence of fresh fruit through to the finish.
