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. This wine is made of 100% Cortese grape. It has a typical Gavi nose of fine almonds and citrus fruit with a fine, fresh, delicate and dry palate. The crisp and refreshing acidity of the wine pairs well with oysters, fish, crab, antipasto, green salads, shellfish, shrimp and sushi.
