To create a dry red wine Corte Rugolin, Valpolicella Classico Superiore "SanGiorgio" DOC, the producer uses the Corvina Veronese, Korvinone, Rondinella and Molinara grapes grown in vineyards located on the hills of San Giorgio. Crop harvested by hand in early October. The best grapes are treated using the "appassimento" technique, during which the grapes are slightly dried to obtain a more intense wine with a concentrated taste and aroma. Appassimento lasts 20 days, after which the berries are pressed and fermented on the skin for 10 days. One half of the wine is kept in steel tanks, and the other - in French oak barrels for 6 months. Experts say that the peak of its maturity vintage 2014 will reach between 2019 and 2022.
Corte Rugolin is located in the heart of the Valpolicella region. It is located on the territory of the old estate, whose history can be traced back to the 1600s, now converted into a winery. The farm is located in an ideal microclimate, thanks to its advantageous location between the Lessini Mountains, the plains and Lake Garda.
Corte Rugolin’s activities are based on preserved winemaking traditions handed down from generation to generation. In 1998, the reins passed to the twins, Elena and Federico Coati. Prior to this, the farm was managed by their father, Bruno, before him — their grandfather, Giuseppe, and before that — their great-grandfather, Fortunato, and great-great-grandfather, Giuseppe. Thanks to the efforts of Elena and Federico, Korte Rugolin became a stronghold, combining past and future, history, traditions and innovations.
