Amarone DOCG Ca'Rugate is made with grapes from a vineyard on the hills of Montecchiadi Crosara.

In September the best grapes are selected and laid flat in small boxes and are left to dry gently in well ventilated humidity-controlled rooms for around 2-3 months. The grapes are then crushed and fermented for about 20-30 days. The must is put into 500l oak casks to finish fermenting. The wine matures in wood for 24 months before bottling.

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.
