Vigneti delle Dolomiti Bianco IGT 2018 Müller Thurgau – Bolognani
Pale straw yellow-greenish color; the scent is of particular intensity and finesse, with a pronounced varietal “aromatic” tone; dry, fragrant, pleasantly aromatic taste without ever becoming cloying; leaves the mouth “clean”
The grapes of Vigneti delle Dolomiti Bianco Muller Thurgau Bolognani are cultivated at an altitude of 550-700 meters on medium-deep, deep soil, with a small, moderately calcareous skeleton and south-west exposure. The harvest is manual in boxes with selection in the vineyard, the vinification takes place in stainless steel tanks, with fermentation from 6 to 10 days and does not carry out malolactic fermentation. The Vigneti delle Dolomiti Bianco IGT Müller Thurgau Bolognani refines 5-6 months in the bottle.
Bolognani wine is a family-run firm (managed by siblings Diego, Sergio, Renzo and Lucia), which we have grown with the tenacious support of our mother, Armida. The business started in our historic facilities (which are still in use) back in 1952, when our father Nilo purchased them; while the facilities themselves (which always had their own cellar) were built in the late nineteenth-early twentieth century.
We create mostly white wines using grapes grown in the hills around Lavis, Val di Cembra and Trento, which we mostly buy from local farmers, with whom we have had excellent and solid relations for decades. Since our 1986 vintage, we have been running our own small selections in the countryside, which we use in our productions, which adds up to a few tens of thousands of bottles in total. With the 2000 and 2004 vintages, we create, using our own vineyards, our exclusive “Cru”: Gabàn and Sanròc, respectively.
