    91 Pts, James Suckling, 2023

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 fermentation. The wine matured in wood for 25-30 months prior to being bottled.

An intensely flavoured but elegant Amarone, with concentrated flavours of ripe blueberries, blackberries and cherries, enhanced by spicy oak. The palate is rich, full-bodied and complex, with beautiful balance and a long, elegant finish.

Winery

Punta 470 takes its name from the altitude of Ca'Rugate's six-hectare estate vineyard in the hills around Montecchia di Crosara, where the grapes are grown at 470 metres above sea level. This elevation allows the grapes to retain balancing acidity to the concentrated fruits and enables Ca Rugate to produce an elegant and food-friendly wine. The vines yield 90 quintals per hectare and are grown in gravel and limestone soils, providing excellent drainage. 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 airflow during the crucial drying process.
