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
The best grapes selected from Ca' Rugate's vineyards in the hilly area of Montecchia
di Crosara and are harvested at the beginning of October. The vines are grown in
soils made up of limestone and pebbles.
Winemaking
Each variety was vinified separately. The grapes were fermented on their skins for a
period of seven to 10 days, releasing the flavour compounds and extracting the
colour during the process. The wine was blended and then matured in stainless steel
tanks in order to preserve the integrity of the primary aromas and varietal
characteristics of the blend.
Tasting Note
Concentrated aromas of red fruits, ripe blackberry and deep cherry flavours, with
floral notes and a hint of spice, supple on the palate with a velvety texture.
Serving Suggestion
Served at 14 to 16°C this is ideal with roast chicken or marinated pork dishes. Great
with flavoursome, hard cheeses.
