About

90

"A cinnamon note sharpens this wine’s flavors of red plum and pomegranate, which evolve into warmer tones of fig and dark chocolate. It feels fresh, with moderate tannins and lively acidity that curb the wine’s sweetness and make it a versatile partner for veal chops."

"Light, fresh and bright with blueberry, dark chocolate and walnut aromas and flavors. Medium body. Crisp finish."

Product Description:

"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.

Ca' Rugate is an agricultural business in Veneto which produces local wines that express in a simple and natural way the land in which they are grown, that of Soave Classico, Valpolicella and Lessini Durello. The company has known how to innovate, reinterpreting traditions and investing in the vineyards most suited to the cultivation of historical vine types. Its history goes back 100 years, bound inseparably to the Tessari family for four generations, and to the dark and volcanic land of the Rugate hill, near the centre of Brognoligo, where it all began.
