Rossignola is a red wine grape variety grown in the Veneto region of Italy.

Where grown: In the Veneto it is most typically found around Verona and on the shores of Lake Garda. It is permitted (10% max) in Bardolino DOC, and other DOC wines such as Breganze Rosso, Garda, Valadige and Valpolicella. It may comprise 85-100% of IGT Verona (or Veronese).

Viticulture: Medium-large compact bunches, with medium berries. Vigourous, but very sensitive to most diseases.
