The Rossignola vine is native to the province of Verona. It is present mainly in the areas of Bardolino and Valpolicella, and it is part of the main names in this area. Although its presence is reported exclusively in this area, its presence was reported only recently, in the 19th century. The Rossignola vine is considered particularly suitable to the production of rose, being a wine of structurally little body, a reason for the partially abandoned cultivation. The berry is black, medium, with very waxy, thin and red-purple skin. The bunch is medium, truncated pyramid, sometimes winged, compact with a medium, pentagonal, five-lobed leaf. The Rossignola vine has good strength and good and regular production. The Rossignola grape gives a wine with a ruby color with purple hues, of intense scents, quite complex, medium-bodied flavor, fresh and with good flavor. Generally it is not vinified alone, but blended with other grapes from the Valpolicella area or Bardolino.
