Ca'Rugate Campo Lavei Valpolicella 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"The viticultural story of the Tessari family begins in the early 1900s. The estate has been called Ca' Rugate since 1986, taking its name from the volcanic hills on which the vineyard are found. The Ca' Rugate vineyards cover 58 hectares, 35 of which are located within the commune of Montecchia di Crosara in Valpolicella. "Due to the unique sunny microclimate and rich volcanic soil, these gentle sloping hills have always been a cradle for high quality wines. Ca' Rugate uses only indigenous grape varieties such as Garganega and Trebbiano di Soave for white wines, and Corvina, Rondinella and Corvinone for reds. In the vineyard, they use modern pruning techniques along with careful canopy management and green pruning, while the latest vinification techniques bring out distinctive aromas and refined flavors in the wines. With the natural potential from the vineyards, three generations of the Tessari family have combined their respect for the soil and tradition with a passion for winemaking. At Ca' Rugate, the winemaking philosophy is to remain true to the varietal character of the grapes." - Distributor's Notes
