La Scolca Rugre Spumante
We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.
This is a terrific alternative to Prosecco, made by the esteemed La Scolca estate in Piedmont. Made of 100% organic estate Cortese grapes with the Charmat method of making sparkling wines, look for lovely aromas of honey blossom, toasted brioche and white peach with a zesty, dry yet a little fruity style. La Scolca led the movement to establish an exciting, new quality level for dry Italian white wines when the Soldati family launched their Gavi dei Gavi in 1966. Gavi comes from a small growing area in northwestern Italy located north of Genoa on the steep slopes of the Ligurian Apennines in Piedmont. The 62-acre La Scolca estate, owned and directed by Giorgio Soldati, is situated in one of the best communes, Rovereto. La Scolca is an artisinal winery which pioneered modern, controlled, vinification in stainless steel to preserve the subtle fruit of the Cortese grape. Yields are kept low, well below the legal maximum, through severe pruning and thinning.
