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.
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".
The warm, dry weather during the growing cycle of the vines in 2015 enabled them to reach excellent physiological ripeness. High temperatures during July lead into a warm, dry summer and ideal harvesting conditions in September. The resulting wines show intense aromatics, flavours and wonderful balance.
Only the best grapes are carefully selected from Ca' Rugate's vineyards in Brognoligo di Monteforte d'Alpone. The vines yield 80 quintals per hectare and are grown in volcanic soils which are rich in minerals.
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.
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.
Perfect with desserts, this makes a great partner to puddings and delicate pastries, or blue veined cheeses.
