Rigoleto is grown in a vineyard lying at 300 metres’ elevation, with various aspects; soils are composed of fractured macigno sandstone and limestone-marl clays. The grapes for Rigoleto, from the vineyards of the three grape varieties making up its blend, are picked somewhat early in order to preserve to the fullest their vibrant aromatics and to ensure for Rigoleto its enviable immediate approachability. Organic vineyard practices have the goal of maintaining the crisp acidity and lively fruitiness of grapes grown on the Montecucco hillslope terroir. The must ferments in stainless steel at low temperatures, to optimise crisp, varietal fidelity. The wine then matures nine months sur lie, partly in large oak ovals. Rigoleto was bottled in July 2022.
