An intense straw yellow colour. On the nose bouquet of pot pourri and green tea with light notes of white pulp fruits and flint. Enveloping in the mouth, structured but not heavy, recalling the aromatic freshness of the perfumes, extending in a rich finish of flavour and extraordinary persistence.
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".
Fermentation, vinification and blending of the two varieties in stainless steel. 50% of the blended wine is matured in 680 litre F. Freres wood barrels for about 9 months. Bottling in August of the following year after the harvest. Ageing for 6 to 7 years with progressive complexity, additional 3 to 4 years to discover interests.
