About the Vineyard
Rigoleto is the name of a river inside the property. Montecucco is located between Montalcino, and Scansano, and benefits from microclimates similar to both of those regions. The Castello ColleMassari winery is located in Cinigiano in the foothills of Monte Amiata, about 1050ft above sea level.
The fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats with never too high temperatures to preserve the most of the fresh and varietal aromatic expression. The wine is aged for 15 months in steel tanks and a small part in barrels.
Pleasant impact on the nose, where fresh, vinous and balsamic notes of cherry and menthol aromas stand out. The taste is fresh, soft and inviting and with sweet and enveloping tannins.
This wine is delightful to drink, and can be enjoyed throughout an entire meal.
