This wine is produced from a selection of the best grapes from Ca'Rugate's own vineyards in the hills around Montecchia di Crosara. The Guyot trained vines are planted at a density of 5,000 and 6,500 vines per hectare which yield 90 quintals per hectare. The soils are limestone, with fresh white calcareous components. The grapes are hand-picked during the last two weeks of September and laid flat in small wooden boxes containing an average of just six kilograms; this allows good air flow during the crucial drying process.

The family business has been handed down through the generations of the Tessari family since the early 1900s. The estate was renamed Ca'Rugate in 1986, taking its name from the volcanic hills where the vineyards are located. Now run by the fourth
generation, Michele has brought with him a lively, passionate and entrepreneurial spirit. Considerable expansion has taken place in recent years with investment in a new technologically advanced cellar and expansion into the Valpolicella area with the
purchase of vineyards in the hilly zone of Montecchia di Crosara. The estate now covers 90 hectares of vineyard. Ca'Rugate has been awarded the prestigious 'Tre Bicchieri' award rating from Gambero Rosso multiple times, making it one of the most awarded
producers in the competition and has been hailed by the New York Times as one of the "Top Five producers of High-End Soave".
