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 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 flavors, 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.
