Description

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 on the finish.

Produced from a selection of the best grapes from Ca'Rugate's own vineyards in the hills around Montecchia di Crosara. The soils are gravel and limestone, providing excellent drainage for the vines. The grapes are 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.

Winemaking
The grapes were allowed to dry gently in well-ventilated rooms for approximately four to five months, concentrating their flavours, sweetness and colour. During the winter, the grapes were crushed and the fermentation started with natural yeasts. The must was then transferred to 500 litre oak casks to finish its fermentation. The wine matures in wood for a period of 25-30 months, prior to being bottled.

Grapes Corvina 40%, Corvinone 30%, Rondinella 30%
