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 grapes come from a vineyard on the hills of Montecchia di Crosara, where the
soil is gravel and limestone. Hand picked during the last two weeks of September
and laid in flat small wooden boxes containing an average of just six kilograms. This
allows good airflow during the crucial drying process.
Winemaking
The grapes were left to dry gently in well-ventilated, humidity controlled rooms for
approximately four to five months, concentrating their flavours, sweetness and
colour. In winter, the grapes were crushed, and the fermentation started with natural
yeasts. The must finished its fermentation in 500 litre oak casks. The wine was then
matured in wood for 25-30 months, prior to being bottled.
Tasting Note
Intense garnet red in colour, with concentrated sweet fruit aromas of currants, ripe
blueberries and cherries, enhanced with a hint of spicy oak. Beautifully balanced on
the palate, it is rich, full bodied and complex with a lingering finish.
Serving Suggestion
Traditionally served to accompany game, chargrilled meats, roasts with rich
flavoursome sauces and mature cheese.
