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. 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".
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 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 grapes were allowed to dry gently in well-ventilated rooms for between six to seven months, concentrating their flavours, sweetness and colour. In spring, the grapes were crushed, fermentation was started by the natural yeast present on the grapes. The must was transferred into barriques to finish fermenting. The wine matured in wood on its lees for 10 to 12 months before being bottled.

Cheese, especially gorgonzola; and a great partner for chocolatey desserts. Try it in the traditional manner with the local 'sbrisolona' biscuit - a variation on shortbread.
