The grapes from the Vigneti delle Dolomiti Bianco Nosiola Bolognani are grown in the vineyards of Giovo and Lavis on a deep, clay-free, deep soil, with a small and medium-sized skeleton at an altitude of 350-500 meters with western exposure. The harvest begins in early October and is manual in a box with selection in the vineyard; vinification takes place in stainless steel tanks, with fermentation from 6 to 10 days with no malolactic fermentation. The Vigneti delle Dolomiti Bianco IGT Nosiola Bolognani ages first in steel than in glass for 5-6 months.
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.
