Gavi Di Gavi La Scolca

Gavi Di Gavi La Scolca

Ref: A103516

Made from the Cortese grape this wine is light straw in colour. Fresh with lemon and green apple character, a medium body and a clean finish.

In the rolling hills outside the town of Gavi lies the estate of La Scolca, which was taken over between 1917 and 1919 by the Soldati family. Today the estate is managed by Giorgio Soldati and his daughter Chiara, the fifth generation of the Soldati family to own the winery.

La Scolca is comprised of 55 hectares of vineyards, some owned, some leased, but all farmed bio-dynamically by the Soldati team. Some of the vines are more than 60 years old. The vineyards extend through 11 towns, including the Rovereto commune of Gavi in Piedmont, considered by experts to have the best terroir for the Cortese grape variety.
Three years before the Gavi was granted DOC status, La Scolca registered the trademark Gavi dei Gavi in the US, better known as the "Black Label". Gavi obtained DOCG status in 1998. Producers within the commune of Gavi are allowed to label their wines as 'Gavi DOCG del commune di Gavi' or 'Gavi di Gavi' but La Scolca is the only producer allowed to use their popular and renowned 'Gavi dei Gavi' trademark name to distinguish themselves.

Jim Budd "another good vintage from this far flung part of the Loire".
Bright raspberry flavours on the palate with an underlying complexity makes this an outstanding wine
