Ca'Rugate Valpolicella Superiore Ripasso DOC 2015, Veneto

Tasting Note

Intense garnet red in colour. Concentrated aromas of red fruit cherries with a hint of spice and flowers. Full bodied palate with soft tannins which make it velvety on the finish.

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

Ripasso is the traditional method where the pomace from the dried Amarone grapes are left to re-ferment in a Valpolicella wine from the same vintage. The wine is aged in 50% French tonneaux and 50% stainless steel for about 8 months

Serving Suggestion

Pasta dishes with meat and tomato sauce, grilled or roasted red meat, game and medium aged cheeses. Serve at 16°C.

Grape
