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 ferments at controlled temperatures. After fermentation, the wine is left to mature on the lees for about six months, to give greater aromatic and gustatory complexity.
Straw yellow color with greenish reflections. The nose perceives intense aromas of yellow pulp fruit, such as peach and apricot, combined with notes of white flowers and acacia. In the mouth it is fresh, balanced and persistent, with a slight mineral note and a pleasantly almond finish.
Perfect to accompany fish and seafood dishes, but also with white meats and fresh cheeses.
