VINEYARD: La Scolca manages an area of about 50 hectares of vineyards, made up of about 200 kilometres of rows of vines. All the vineyards are in the best locations of Rovereto di Gavi, Italy. This area enjoys sea air, full sunlight exposure from sunrise to sunset, cool temperature, and minimal dews. All these elements create the conditions that are ideal for achieving the complete and correct maturity of the grapes, a fundamental requirement for producing excellent wine.GRAPES: 100% Cortese
PREPARATION: All La Scolca's white wines follow the same vinification process. The grapes are harvested by hand and brought to the winery. After just five to ten minutes of harvest, they are sprayed with dry ice. This, along with cryo-maceration, cold fermentation at a controlled temperature of 13-14ºC, and the use of natural yeasts conserves the subtle acidity, fruit, and structure that is natural to the Cortese grape.
PAIRING: La Scolca Gavi del Comune di Gavi White Label is the perfect accompaniment for fish and other seafood, such as oysters. It is also excellent with white meat and vegetable pies.
RECOMMENDED SERVING TEMPERATURE: 12-14°C
The La Scolca® estate was purchased between 1917 and 1919 by the great-grandfather of the current owner, Giorgio Soldati, who today leads the company together with the Chiara Soldati glia, the fifth generation with an eye already at the third millennium. The past and the future coexist in this company that best combines the naturalness of those who live in this world with the speed of those who look forward with the vision of courageous captains: never as in the case of the Soldati family names have a meaning symbolic. The name of the plot derives from the ancient toponym "Sfurca" or "Looking far away" and the farmhouse that once stood there had been a lookout post in the past. The surname fully reflects the heroic and tenacious character of the owners and their wines.More about the Winery
