GAVI, Italy, March 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Chiara Soldati, Piedmont's high level wine producer currently celebrating 97 years of winemaking in Gavi, is pleased to announce that La Scolca is featured in a recent issue of Forbes US magazine. In the article "Two Reasons I Love Italian Wine," wine critic Nick Passamore reports that he "dined at New York's A Voce with Chiara Soldati, fifth generation of her family to work in the family's Piedmontese wine business, La Scolca. Their primary focus is Gavi, made from the Cortese grape. Now Gavi is one of those many Italian white wines whose reputation suffered for decades from over production of thin, watery, acidic, lemon-water wines. But here's where La Scolca diverges from the narrative above: their move to quality came in the years following the war under the farsighted direction of Chiara's grandfather."
Chiara Soldati is very proud of this mention in Forbes. "La Scolca worked hard for many years to have our wines included among the finest tables in the world," says proprietor Chiara Soldati. "We're so proud of this distinction that is for us an important goal and an incentive to continue always with our straight philosophy of production. Every time it is very important to be appreciative in our production, and for us particularly, because our work it is also our passion of life."
La Scolca believes the Cortese grape has a big future, having pioneered the craft in this region of the world through the growing, obtaining and utilizing of the finest grapes the area has to offer.
La Scolca's Gavi dei Gavi is proof that behind every wine is an extraordinary human intelligence.
The winemakers were pleasantly surprised that Nick Passamore was able to review Gavi dei Gavi Black Label and La Scolca Gavi D'Antan 2004. His article went on further to say, "The fact that knowledgeable wine connoisseurs are prepared to pay what amounts to an astounding price for an Italian white wine is testament to the prestige in which La Scolca is held.
"The Gavi di Gavi designation applies only to wines from the village, or commune, of Gavi; wines from the surrounding region bear the single 'Gavi' on the label. This version is dry and crisp, but with a mellow, deep complexity that will deepen and evolve for several years, like an old Grand Cru Chablis."
About La Scolca
La Scolca believes in maintaining a Latin "furor" and passion, and knows that without courage it's very difficult to reach certain targets and imagine audacious goals. After the bunch, land and ground give the wine its soul, it's important to take into account the man who stays behind-La Scolca wines often resemble those who create them.
The quality of Gavi La Scolca goes beyond fashions and trends with its strong personality and gentle but firm and persistent character. Gavi La Scolca is difficult to forget after having tasted it. You could say that Gavi dei Gavi™ could be a "timeless passion"
