This wine is named after Campo Bastiglia, where Ca’Rugate’s vineyard is located, nestled in the hills around Montecchia di Crosara. The fruit is sourced from a selection of the best grapes. The vines yield 90 quintals per hectare and are grown in a gravel and limestone soil. The harvest takes place manually during the last two weeks of September, when the grapes have reached optimum maturity.
It is vnified from a combination of dried and undried grapes. The undried grapes were destemmed and fermented immediately after the harvest. The dried grapes were allowed to dry gently in well-ventilated rooms for approximately four to five months, concentrating the flavours, sweetness and colour. The dried grapes were added later; they were fermented in stainless steel for one week, prior to being pressed at the end of December. The wine was then transferred to small barrels to finish fermentation. It was then matured in wood for eight to 10 months.
