Gavi dei Gavi 2017 La Scolca DOCG
The prestigious "Gavi dei Gavi La Scolca" is obtained through the most rigorous respect for nature, of the most ancient and traditional cultivation rules, from pruning to harvest with a strict and careful selection in vineyards that reach sixty years of age. In the cellar with winemaking rules refined in 90 years of experience, a Gavi model is still unsurpassed: a term of comparison and reference, the result of a long tradition for generations. A wine that amazes: it contrasts a delicate character with a strong character and a great personality: a wine suspended in time. Alive and intense, harmonious and balanced, it offers surprising freshness and continuity. The complex scents of flint, almond and walnut know how to evolve over time: a wine with the soul of the fancuillo but the heart as an adult.

What is striking when arriving at the Scolca Estate in addition to the ancient Tower that overlooks the house, is the pleasantness of the atmosphere that is perceived, everything takes place with harmony and punctuality that only well-tested mechanisms can show. The La Scolca estate was purchased between 1917 and 1919 by the great-grandfather of the current owner, Giorgio Soldati, who today runs the company together with his daughter Chiara Soldati, the fifth generation with an eye to the third millennium. The Scolca is therefore the oldest company in the area, due to the continuity of management by the same family, but at the same time it is the most modern. Giorgio has proved to be a very valid and whimsical innovative performer: his is the creation of successful wines and sparkling wines without ever betraying loyalty to the land of Gavi and the Cortese grape. But the most arduous task that he took on, together with his daughter, was to maintain the leadership the company had gained over the years, further strengthening the image and fame of Scolca with a Piedmontese will and the highest quality philosophy possible.
