La Scolca prepares to celebrate a century of winemaking

La Scolca, a premium wine producer is celebrating 99 years of winemaking in Gavi and is set to present a series of commemorative projects for next year’s milestone of 100 years, during the 52nd edition of Vinitaly in Verona on April 15 to 18.

"We at La Scolca have worked hard for many years to incorporate our wines into top international restaurant lists, to collaborate with prestigious commercial realities and to grace the finest tables in the world. We are proud of our triumphs, which include our ongoing collaboration with Ferretti Group luxury yachts and with leading Italian furniture design label Georgetti and our finely tuned global distribution network which promotes our products at the highest levels", says proprietor Chiara Soldati. "We are very satisfied with these accomplishments, which confirm the importance of a superior product, born of both of our ingrained passion and of dedication to every detail of the production process."

La Scolca was the first local producer to recognize the potential of Cortese grape in the Gavi region, according to a release.

La Scolca’s Gavi dei Gavi presents a harmonious combination of heat and acidity with soft and fruity notes to finish.

"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," says Bruce Sanderson, The Wine Spectator.
