Ca Rugate Valpolicella Rio Albo 2022 HALF Bottle (37.5cl)


Red, Veneto, Italy

In stock


This is a superb Italian red wine made from the local Italian grape varieties Corvina (45%), Corvinone (40%), Rondinella (15%) From Ca’Rugate, in Veneto, in North-east Italy. This Valpolicella isn’t a complex wine, and that’s the beauty of it, extremely easy to drink and can be served with a slight chill!

TASTING NOTE: A pretty ruby colour. On the nose: It has elegant aromas of cherry, sour cherry and red berries, with mixed herb notes too. On the palate: A light to medium-bodied wine with supple, light tannins and plenty of character. It is delightfully refreshing with good acidity and well-integrated, moderate alcohol. Despite being a light, juicy wine, it is long on flavour and extremely easy to drink. 13% alcohol by volume.

FOOD PAIRING, STORING AND SERVICE: This is a great red to serve with appetizers and canapes as it is not too heavy. It can also be chilled slightly down if you would like a fresher, crisp style of red, or when it’s hot in summer. For a vegan match try it with fried courgette blossoms. It’s also a great pizza match; try it slightly chilled with a hearty tomato pizza, it’s delicious! Drink now or it will keep well till Spring 2025.

ABOUT: Ca’Rugate is an estate owned by the Michele Tessari family in the Veneto part of Northeast Italy. They have vineyards (just over 200 acres) in Soave and Valpolicella.
