Ca Rugate La Perlara Recioto di Soave 2016

Intensely perfumed with aromas of barley sugar, ripe mango and peach with a beautifully long caramelised orange finish balanced by a lovely freshness. Quite superb.

Producer Note

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".

Vintage

A cool winter with high rainfall set the scene for 2016. Dry and rainy periods took place during the spring enabling the vegetative cycle to develop without any stress. The summer saw high temperatures with dry conditions. The 2016 harvest began among the vineyards that surround the centre of Brognoligo, descending towards the valley, with the goal of picking grapes with good acidity levels. Intense picking took place, starting on the higher banks, as these are exposed to light and heat. The 2016 fruit was high quality.

Vineyard

The volcanic origin of the land results in limestone and basalt characteristics, in which the Garganega grapes flourish. Only the best grapes are carefully selected from Ca' Rugate's vineyards in Brognoligo di Monteforte d'Alpone, where the vines yield 80 quintals per hectare.

Winemaking

The grapes were allowed to dry gently in well-ventilated rooms for approximately six to seven months, concentrating their flavours and sweetness. In the spring, the dried grapes were pressed and fermented in barrels with natural yeast then allowed to mature in wood for 10 to 12 months.

Tasting Note

A bright golden and intensely perfumed wine, with floral notes complemented by hints of sultanas, dried figs, nuts and spices. Richly sweet and lingering on the palate, with a beautifully long caramelised fruit finish.
