La Scolca ranks among the top white wine producers in Italy and it was the Soldati family who first produced quality Gavi from the Cortese grape. Forget what you may have tasted before, known throughout the world, Black Label Gavi is pale straw yellow in colour with delicate greenish highlights. Intense lemon citrus fruit with floral and flinty notes on the nose. Medium bodied, with apple and more citrus fruit on the palate with notes of almond and hazelnuts. Crisp, refreshing and long finish.

Sourced from the Estate's oldest Cortese vines, averaging over 60 years, these are among the oldest within the appellation. Very low yields - ranging from 70 to 50 quintals per hectare. Vines are located on the hills surrounding the Villa La Scolca. Hand harvested fruit is brought to the winery after 5 - 10 mins and sprayed with dry ice. Cryo-maceration, cold fermentation in stainless steel tanks and the use of natural yeasts preserves the Corteses subtle fruit. The young wine remains in tank on its lees for 9 months before natural decanting and bottling.
