Intensely perfumed with aromas of barley sugar, ripe
mango and peach with a beautifully long caramelised

superb.
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 2017 vintage saw a cool, wet winter, followed by a cool spring. The weather was
warm and sunny during the summer, with some hot periods. The harvest was a
challenging and complex one. It started in August with the white grapes and
Garganega and ended in October with the red grapes of Punta Tolotti and Campo
Lavei. The grapes were in good condition at harvest time.
Vineyard
The volcanic origin of the land results in limestone and basalt characteristics, in which
the Garganega grapes flourish. Only the best grapes are carefully selected from Ca'
Rugate's vineyards in Brognoligo di Monteforte d'Alpone, where the vines yield 80
quintals per hectare.
Winemaking
The grapes were allowed to dry gently in well-ventilated rooms for approximately six to
seven months, concentrating their flavours and sweetness. In the spring, the dried
grapes were pressed and fermented in barrels with natural yeast then matured in
wood for 10 to 12 months.
Tasting Note
A bright golden and intensely perfumed wine, with floral notes complemented by hints
of sultanas, dried figs, nuts and spices. Richly sweet and lingering on the palate, with a
beautifully long caramelised fruit finish.
