The La Scolca® estate was purchased between 1917 and 1919 by the great-grandfather of the current owner, Giorgio Soldati, who today runs the business together with his daughter Chiara Soldati, the fifth generation with an eye looking forward to the third millennium. The past and the future coexist in this enterprise, which combines the naturalness of those who have always lived in this world with the speed of those who look ahead with the foresight of brave commanders. In the Soldati family names really do have a symbolic meaning. The name of the land derives from the ancient name, "Sfurca", or "Looking far ahead". The farmhouse that once stood there was once a lookout post. The surname fully reflects the proud and tenacious character of the owners and their wines.
A high quality wine can be made only from grapes grown in places where there is harmony between the soil, climate, altitude, exposure and the processes that combine innovation and tradition, in order to obtain full notes and aromas that you will enjoy tasting, for example, La Scolca® "Gavi dei Gavi®". The firm is always seeking superior quality, a guarantee for the La Scolca® brand, as well as its philosophy: you need excellent grapes to make an excellent wine. It is hard work making wine "in the vineyard" rather than "in the cellar", i.e. to grow the best possible grapes and make the wine from a high quality raw material. The results of this process are evident during the tasting: a most complex and elegant wine, with a personality attributable to the terroir.
The black label, "G Soldati G" (the Soldati family marks this special wine with its family name as a seal of quality), denotes a surprising wine. Gavi dei Gavi® is noble and unique; well known among jet-setters and royalty, but remaining deeply linked to its origins. Wine must bring out emotions. Wine is passion. For this reason the quality of Gavi La Scolca® manages to go beyond fads and trends, with its strong personality and great character. It is very difficult to forget Gavi La Scolca® after tasting it.
