CONTI BOSSI FEDRIGOTTI FOJANEGHE
With 40ha of vineyards, Conti Bossi Fedrigotti is one of the biggest estates in Trentino. Production is based on the typical grapes of the region: Marzemino, Teroldego, Traminer, and Pinot Grigio (or Ruländer, as they call it in the zone) – which are grown alongside the great international varieties: Merlot, Cabernet, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The Fojaneghe vineyard is particularly prestigious, and gives its name to the eponymous wine, which was the first example of a Bordeaux blend in Italy. 18 ha in size, and divided off into wine terraces, the vineyard is located in the communes of Mori and Isera at an altitude of about 300 m above sea level. It benefits from an excellent exposition to the sun and from the Ora breeze, which arrives from Lake Garda during the heat of the afternoons.
The oldest vines are Merlot, dating back to 1949, and were those used for production of the first vintage of Fojaneghe in 1961. Cuttings from these vines have provided the material for more modern plantings. As well as the typical Bordeaux varieties of Merlot and Cabernet, Teroldego is also grown here. Since 2007, Tenuta Conti Bossi Fedrigotti has been one of the historic château properties of the Venetian territories under the umbrella of the Masi Group.
