Ruggeri

Paolo e Isabella Bisol,

(VALDOBBIADENE) Ruggeri produces iconic Prosecco Valdobbiadene wines. Among the wines of great interest are the three labels Giall’Oro, Vecchie Viti and Giustino B, as well as the sensational wines of the ‘Cartizze’ cru.

The history of Ruggeri’s wines

Giustino Bisol

From the very beginning, the best Prosecco production area was Valdobbiadene north of Conegliano, which was awarded the prestigious DOCG in 2009.

Here Ruggeri u0026 C. was founded by Giustino Bisol in 1950, but old census documents show that the owners, the Bisol family, cultivated the vines in the famous Cartizze sub-area long before modern times.

Building on this tradition and with a scrupulous attention to quality, the company has recently emerged as one of the most prestigious producers of Prosecco ever. Today the company is run by Paolo and Isabella Bisol, son and grandson of Giustino, who have carried out the project with a modern outlook. Ruggeri are now internationally recognized for their Prosecco, demonstrating that Glera grapes can create wines of rare elegance and character.

Ruggeri produces his wines on the hills of Valdobbiadene in the so-called ‘Golden Triangle’. It is a hilly complex recognized as one of the most suitable for the production of Prosecco Valdobbiadene thanks to particularly favorable climate, soils and exposures.

In the heart of the “Golden Triangle” are the hills of Cartizze, the most famous cru, the flagship of Prosecco Valdobbiadene wines. Here the very elegant Valdobbiadene Superiore di Cartizze DOCG wines are born, of which Ruggeri is the most historic and iconic producer.

In the Cru di Cartizze the vines are grown on terraces of 250-300 m s.l.m. and they benefit from a more intense solar irradiation with greater thermal excursions than in other areas. These conditions give life to more complex, rich wines with eloquent and multifaceted aromas.

The soils from which Ruggeri’s wines are born are rich in micronutrients and composed of limestone, clays, sandstones and marine fossils derived from ancient ocean floors. Crucial assumptions that give great structure and elegance to Ruggeri wines, which echo the extraordinary sapidity and minerality of the sea that submerged the hills of Valdobbiadene.

The Philosophy of Ruggeri’s wines

Paolo Bisol

Among the aspects that inspire the production philosophy of Ruggeri’s wines there is the great synergy and trust established with the winemakers of the territory, over a hundred, who give the grapes. The operations in the vineyard are manual and carried out with great attention to the needs of the vine in all its development stages in order to bring excellent quality and ripeness to the cellar.

Another crucial aspect for Ruggeri is the primary attention to biodiversity: the company has in fact created a ‘vegetable library’ in which 57 biotypes of indigenous Valdobbiadene vines are preserved.

The Wines of Ruggeri

Ruggeri’s wines are blended by balancing the different expressive nuances obtained from innumerable parcels of vineyards with distinct pedoclimatic conditions. This ensures that the wines are harmonious, balanced and consistent.

Among the elements that distinguish Ruggeri wines there is the olfactory clarity and the enhancement of the varietal aromas of the Glera. The wines are also embellished by refinements on the yeasts which give structure, complexity and silkiness to the palate.

The production of Ruggeri’s wines is divided into 4 Lines: ‘Classici’, ‘Cartizze’, ‘Selezioni’ and ‘Contemporanei’.

Of particular interest among Ruggeri’s wines is the ‘Giall’Oro’ Extra Dry, with a floral and fragrant bouquet. From the ‘selections’ line, the award-winning and iconic ‘Giustino B.’ Extra Dry, which owes its name to the founder of Ruggeri. It is a very elegant vintage wine, with a fine perlage and fascinating citrus nuances, obtained from the best grapes of the Valdobbiadene Crus.

Finally, again from the ‘selections’ line of great interest there is the very refined Brut Millesimato ‘Vecchie Viti’, the first sparkling wine obtained exclusively from centenary vines. Producing millions of cuvée bottles is not the main goal for Ruggeri, who prefers to focus on quality by conveying a high idea of ​​producing Prosecco Valdobbiadene internationally.

To date, Ruggeri’s wines are in fact among the most sought after by true Prosecco enthusiasts and connoisseurs.
