Tenuta La Scolca was acquired between 1917 and 1919 by the great-grandfather of the current owner Giorgio Soldati, who is now firmly at the helm of the company together with his daughter Chiara Soldati. At the time of purchase, the property was mostly covered by woods and wheat crops. The constant work and commitment of the family made it possible to radically transform the situation: the decision to plant Cortese vineyards in an area traditionally suited to the production of red berried grapes was important until then. This gave way to a type of wine, the Gavi, destined for a fortunate commercial success in the following years of which Scolca can be considered the creator under certain aspects, being the oldest company in the area, but also the most modern and innovator.
The must is left to rest in stainless steel tanks, where the yeasts naturally present in the must begin the fermentation process. After fermentation, the wine is left to mature on the lees for about six months, in order to give the wine greater aromatic and gustatory complexity
Straw yellow color with greenish reflections. The nose is very intense and persistent, with fruity and floral aromas that evolve over time. When it is tasted, one perceives a remarkable breadth and flavor, with a set of complex flavors that recall flint, and a final aftertaste of almond and walnut that surprises with its freshness.
Excellent with seafood appetizers and grilled vegetables, roast chicken or scallops with lemon.
