La Scolca Gavi Dei Gavi Black Label 2019
- In stock, ready to ship
PRODUCER: The estate La Scolca was taken over between 1917 and 1919 by the great-grandfather of Giorgio Soldati who leads today the company together with his daughter Chiara, the fifth generation. La Scolca is therefore the oldest company in the area, for continuity of the management by the same family, but at the same time is the most modern.
WINEMAKING: Hand-harvested fruit is brought to the winery after 5-10 minutes, where it is sprayed with dry-ice. Cryo-maceration, cold fermentation (13-14⁰C) in stainless steel tanks and the use of natural yeasts preserves the Cortese’s subtle fruit, flinty acidity and structure. The young wine remains in tank on its lees for nine months before natural decanting and bottling. This wine will only improve with bottle age, evolving beautifully for 10 years and more.
TASTING NOTES: Pale straw in color with delicate greenish highlights. Intense lemon citrus fruit with floral and flinty notes on the nose, comparable to the best wines from Chablis. Medium bodied, with apple and more citrus fruit on the palate as well as notes of almonds and hazelnuts. The finish is crisp, refreshing and long.
