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".
Vintage
The 2018 winter was cool with frequent rainfall. The start of the growing season was also
marked by rain, but a hot, dry period followed during the summer. Ideal temperatures
during the harvest delivered good yields of high quality grapes.
Vineyard
This wine is produced from a selection of the best grapes from Ca'Rugate's own
vineyards in the hills around Montecchia di Crosara. The Guyot trained vines are
planted at a density of 5,000 and 6,500 vines per hectare which yield 90 quintals per
hectare. The soils are limestone, with fresh white calcareous components. 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 air flow during the
crucial drying process.
Winemaking
The grapes were allowed to dry gently in well-ventilated rooms for between five to six
months, concentrating their flavours, sweetness and colour. In spring, the grapes were
crushed and fermentation was started by the natural yeast present on the grapes. The
must was transferred into barriques to finish fermenting. The wine matured in wood on
its lees for 10 to 12 months before being bottled.
Tasting Note

of wild herbs and spice, complemented by a beautifully balanced sweetness.
