ESTATE

A Noble Tradition from Trentino

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

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. This is a recent addition to the blend for Fojaneghe and gives “Trentino character” to the wine.

The Maturation
Cellars

The cellars used for ageing, converted from an old cattle shed, are to be found at Maso San Giorgio. They contain:

  • 1st-, 2nd- and 3rd-passage barriques used for the ageing (18 months) of the grapes that go into the blend for Fojaneghe (45% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Franc, 15% Teroldego), and part of the Teroldego component (6 months).
  • large 40hl barrels used for ageing the remaining portion of Teroldego (6 months).

The Conte Federico
Cellars

The Conte Federico Cellars are used for the production of the Trentodc Riserva. The wine stays on the lees for almost 36 months before remuage, which lasts about 6 weeks before dégorgement. 

The vinification cellars contain stainless steel tanks of different sizes used for the fermentation of both white and red wines.
