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. 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".

Vineyard

Produced from a selection of the best grapes from Ca'Rugate's own six hectare vineyard in the hills around Montecchia di Crosara. The vines yield 90 quintals per hectare and are grown in gravel and limestone soils, providing excellent drainage for the vines. 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.

Winemaking

The grapes were allowed to dry gently in well-ventilated rooms for approximately four to five months, concentrating their flavours, sweetness and colour. During the winter, the grapes were crushed and the fermentation started with natural yeasts. The must was then transferred to 500 litre oak casks to finish its fermentation. The wine matures in wood for a period of 25-30 months, prior to being bottled.

Tasting Note

Concentrated aromas of ripe blueberries, blackberries and cherries are enhanced with a hint of spicy oak. The palate is rich, full bodied and complex, beautifully balanced and lingering on the finish.

Serving Suggestion

Traditionally served to accompany game, chargrilled meats and mature cheese. This is a great wine for special occasions and sharing with friends at the end of a meal.
