The Rigoloccio has a deep soul for red wines but loves challenges. In 2017 the Rigoloccio decided to put himself to the test with white wines, producing a pure chardonnay vinified and aged in barrique. In the glass a wine of great texture, which combines aromatic richness with an unmistakable minerality. Its name is a tribute to the mistral wind, which blows from the northwest by mitigating the afternoon temperatures.
