More info

Punta 470 takes its name from the altitude of Ca'Rugate's six hectare estate vineyard in the hills around Montecchia di Crosara, where the grapes are grown at 470 metres above sea-level. This elevation allows the grapes to retain balancing acidity to the concentrated fruits and enables Ca’ Rugate to produce a wine which is elegant and food-friendly. The vines yield 90 quintals per hectare and are grown in gravel and limestone soils, 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.

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 fermentation. The wine matures in wood for a period of 25-30 months, prior to being bottled.
