Ca'Rugate Valpolicella DOC "Rio Albo" 2016, Veneto

Tasting Note

Ruby red in colour, with a bouquet of blackberry and cherries. The palate is supple, with light tannins and plenty of flavour.

Producer Note

The family business has been handed down through the generations of the Tessari family since the early 1900's. 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. 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".

Winemaking

Fermented on the skins for a period of 7 to 10 days and matured in stainless steel tanks.

Serving Suggestion

Ideal with grilled or roast chicken and pork and good with tasty hard cheeses.

Grape

Corvina 40%, Corvinone 30%, Rondinella 30%
