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. The estate now
covers 90 hectares of vineyard. 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
This wine is named after Campo Bastiglia, where Ca’Rugate’s vineyard is located,
nestled in the hills around Montecchia di Crosara. The fruit is sourced from a
selection of the best grapes. The vines yield 90 quintals per hectare and are grown in
a gravel and limestone soil. The harvest takes place manually during the last two
weeks of September, when the grapes have reached optimum maturity.


Winemaking
Vinified from a combination of dried and undried grapes. The undried grapes were
destemmed and fermented immediately after the harvest. The dried grapes were
allowed to dry gently in well-ventilated rooms for approximately four to five months,
concentrating the flavours, sweetness and colour. The dried grapes were added
later; they were fermented in stainless steel for one week, prior to being pressed at
the end of December. The wine was then transferred to small barrels to finish
fermentation. It was then matured in wood for eight to 10 months.


Tasting Note
Concentrated aromas of red fruit cherries with a hint of spice and floral notes. Full
bodied palate with soft tannins, an elegant silky texture and a velvety finish.
