Rigogoli, or “golden orioles,” is a medium bodied, oak aged white wine that was created as a tribute to the family of Il Marchese Giovanni Incisa della Rocchetta. This blend of Viognier and Grechetto di Todi, gets its name from Giovanni’s beloved grandfather, Il Principe Corsini, or more affectionately, Nonno Pio, who would greet Giovanni and his sister, Eleonora dressed by their mother in bright yellow jumpers, exclaiming, “Ecco i miei rigogoli!”

Harvest Note
2020 registered a very dry and warm early spring; it followed a rainy period in May/June and a very hot and dry climate that went on until the end of the summer. Manual harvest occurred in the early hours of the day to preserve the integrity of the grapes.
Tasting Note
Creamy and refreshing, Rigogoli bursts with flavors of peach, almond, sweet spice and finishes with a clean, sea-swept minerality. The native Grechetto di Todi pairs well with Viognier which rounds out Grechetto’s acidity, but also serves to add more complex aromas to this wine.
