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
Valpolicella DOC is located on the gentle slopes of the Montecchia di Crosara and
Cazzano di Tramigna valleys. Ca Rugate’s vineyards are situated in the district of
Montecchia di Crosara, at an altitude of 450 metres above sea level. The six hectare
Campo Lavei vineyard is situated on the hillside, where the vines yield 90 quintals per
hectare and are grown in limestone and pebble soils.
Winemaking
At the beginning of October, some of the harvested grapes are set aside to dry in
wooden trays until the end of December. The undried grapes were destemmed and
fermented immediately after the harvest. The dried grapes were added at a later stage
and were allowed to ferment in stainless steel for approximately one week, prior to
pressing, which took place at the end of December. The wine was then transferred into
small barrels to finish fermentation and mature in oak, for a period of eight to 10
months.
Tasting Note
Intense aromas of black fruit and cherries, combined with a hint of spice from the
wood. The palate is mellow, balanced and rounded, complete with elegant tannins
and a smooth finish.
