GAVI, Italy, May 10, 2011 - Chiara Soldati, Piedmont's high level wine producer, currently
celebrating 90 years in winemaking in Gavi, is pleased to announce that La
Scolca is featured in the April 2011 issue of "Wine Spectator" magazine. In
the article "The jewel of Northwest Italy," wine critic Bruce Sanderson
reports that "Historic La Scolca takes Cortese to new heights".
"La Scolca worked hard for many years to have our wines included among
the finest tables in the world", says proprietor Chiara Soldati "We're so
proud of this distinction! For us it is an important goal and an incentive to
always continue with our straight philosophy of production. It is very
important to us to take care in our production, particularly as our work is
also our life's passion."
La Scolca believed in Cortese for a great future and have pioneered the
craft in this region of the world, growing, obtaining and utilizing the
finest grapes the area has to offer.
Behind every wine is hidden an extraordinary human intelligence that has
created something unique and this statement seems perfect for Gavi dei Gavi
The great knowledge of the vineyard has led the company to courageous
choices of cultivation, producing a raw material with great acidity & great
minerality, with both elements excellently balanced. Heat, balance, acidity,
soft and fruity notes on the finish, very long in the mouth: Gavi dei Gavi La
A nice surprise - the Gavi La Scolca D'Antan, epic and courageous, almost
Bruce Sanderson, in his articles in Wine Spectator, says: "Most Gavis are
best drunk young and paired with seafood. But La Scolca's D'Antan, which is
aged for 10 years in stainless steel before bottling, develops toast, wax,
iodine and mineral aromas and flavors not unlike a mature Champagne."
Without a little quantity of latin "furor" and passion, without courage
it's very difficult to reach certain targets and to imagine audacious goals.
Taking into account the bunch, terrain and the earth which gives the wine
its soul, the man behind it all is just as it's important; Wines often seem
to be like those who create them.
After 90 years, La Scolca is already looking forward to the future.
The quality of Gavi La Scolca manages to overcome its fashions and trends
with a strong personality and with great character: gentle but firm and
persistent. It is very difficult to forget Gavi La Scolca after you have
tasted it, we can say that "Gavi dei Gavi(TM) "could be a "timeless classic".
