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".
A cool winter with high rainfall set the scene for 2016. Dry and rainy periods took place during the spring enabling the vine's growth cycle to develop without any stress. The summer saw high temperatures with dry conditions, resulting in high yields of high quality grapes.
The grapes come from the six hectare Monte Fiorentine vineyard in Brognoligo di Monteforte d'Alpone and are harvested at optimum maturity at the end of September. The yields are 90 to100 quintals per hectare. The vineyard soils are volcanic and rich in minerals, imparting a certain minerality to the final wine.
Fermented in stainless steel tanks at a temperature of 16 to 18°C for approximately 10 to 15 days, maintaining the freshness and aromatic qualities of the Garganega grapes.
Rich and golden in colour, a wonderful example of a Soave Classico, with beautiful layering of exotic, tropical fruits and a touch of minerality. Full and rich in flavour, this is a structured wine with a fresh, mineral finish.
Best enjoyed lightly chilled and serve with asaparagus, or pea and prawn risotto, grilled fish, salads or mild cheese.
