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 the Monte Fiorentine vineyard in Brognoligo di Monteforte
d'Alpone and are harvested at optimum maturity in the middle of October. The
yields are 90-100 quintals per hectare. The vineyard soils are volcanic and rich in
minerals, imparting a certain minerality to the final wine.
Winemaking
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.
