Vigneti delle Dolomiti Bianco IGT 2018 Sauvignon – Bolognani
Straw yellow color, tending to greenish; fruity, delicately varietal and salty taste, lively, aromatic to the point of not being cloying
The grapes of the Vigneti delle Dolomiti Bianco Sauvignon Bolognani are cultivated at an altitude of 350-400 meters on deep, clayey soil, from deep to very deep, with the presence of a skeleton and west, south-west exposure. The harvest is manual in boxes with selection in the vineyard and the vinification takes place in steel tanks, with fermentation from 6 to 10 days without malolactic fermentation. The Vigneti delle Dolomiti Bianco Sauvignon Bolognani is aged 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.
