Amarone della Valpolicella Cà Rugate
GRAPE VARIETIES: 45% Corvina, 15% Rondinella, 40% Corvinone
AREA OF PRODUCTION: a selection of the best grapes from Ca’ Rugate’s own vineyards in the hills around Montecchia di Crosara
HARVEST: 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
WINE MAKING PROCESS: the grapes are allowed to dry gently in well-ventilated rooms for around 4-5 months, concentrating their flavours, sweetness and colour. In winter, the grapes are crushed, fermentation starts with natural yeast and then the must is filled into 500l oak casks to finish fermenting. The wine matures in wood for 30-36 months before bottling
TASTING NOTE: intense garnet red in colour. Concentrated aromas of ripe blueberries, blackberries and cherries are enhanced with a hint of spicy oak. The palate is rich, full bodied and complex; beautifully balanced and lingering
SERVING: traditionally served to accompany game, char-grilled meats and mature cheese. This is a great wine for special occasions and sharing with friends at the end of a meal.
Suggested initial serving temperature: 17°C
In 2001, as Michele was entering the family's business, carrying on as the fourth generation of grape growers, the Tessaris made the decision to build a new, larger and technologically advanced cellar along the road of the Val d'Alpone. An endeavor that was financially challenging but far-seeing. In the same year, the family decided to invest their experience in the Valpolicella area by purchasing the first vineyards in the hilly zone of Montecchia di Crosara.
Ca' Rugate today
The new cellar was inaugurated in 2002 which began the dynamic growth of the last ten years of the estate of Ca' Rugate. The arrival of Michele brings a lively entrepreneurial spirit that has permitted its expansion and further affirms the winery both in terms of quality and organization. It is in these last years that more considerable viticulture development has taken place. From 2002 to 2008 around 30 hectors (74 acres) have been purchased in the best areas of Monteforte d'Alpone and Montecchia di Crosara which makes a total of 48 hectors (119 acres).
