More info

Ca'Rugate is one of the most Three Glasses awarded producer in Italy and is ranked by the New York Times among the 'top 5 producers of high end Soave'. The story of the estate begins when Amedeo Tessari, an Innkeeper owning a few plots of vines in Soave area, founded and developed the wine production in the early 1900s. Despite the difficult times of the two World Wars, the Tessari family kept developing and pioneering the Piemontese wine's expansion. The Estate was renamed Ca'Rugate in 1986, taking its name from the volcanic hills on which the vineyard are located. The Ca'Rugate vineyards now cover 58 hectares, 35 of which are located within the commune of Montecchiadi Crosara in Valpolicella.

La Perlara Recioto di Soave is made from a selection of the best grapes from Ca'Rugate's vineyards in Brognoligo di Monteforte d'Alpone. The grapes are allowed to dry gently in well ventilated rooms for around 6-7 months, concentrating their flavours and sweetness. In spring the dried grapes are pressed and fermented in barrel with natural yeast then allowed to mature in wood for 10-12 months.
