Vigneti delle Dolomiti Rosso IGT 2017 “Armìlo” – Bolognani
Intense red color with violet reflections; aroma characterized by a distinct typical varietal note, elegant with good intensity.
The Teroldego Vigneti delle Dolomiti Rosso Armilo Bolognani grapes are grown at an altitude of 200-300 meters on mixed sand and clay soil, with an average depth rich in a little calcareous skeleton with west exposure. The harvest is manual in boxes with selection in the vineyard and maceration takes place in steel tanks, with subsequent partial passage in wood. Il Vigneto delle Dolomiti Rosso IGT “Armìlo” Bolognani ages in steel and wood then refines in glass.
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.
