GAVI, Italy, March 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Chiara Soldati, Piedmont's premium wine producer, is currently celebrating its 97th year of winemaking in Gavi and is pleased to announce that La Scolca has been awarded 90 points for La Scolca D'Antan™, in the April 2016 issue of "Wine Spectator" magazine.
"We've worked hard for many years to have our wines included on the finest tables in the world," says proprietor Chiara Soldati. "We're so proud of this distinction, which is an important achievement for us and an incentive to continue working with our simple production philosophy. Every time we are appreciated for our work, it's very important to us because our work is also our passion in life." La Scolca is famous worldwide for its Gavi dei Gavi™, also named "Black Label," and now it is proud to achieve this important goal with the great Riserva La Scolca D'Antan.
The Soldati family, which means "soldiers" in Italian, have pioneered the craft in this region of the world by growing the finest grapes that the area can offer.
Great knowledge of vineyards has led the company to make courageous choices of cultivation, producing raw material with great acidity, minerality and all well-balanced elements as their reward. This results in a taste that balances the acidity with soft and fruity notes which linger in the mouth. "La Scolca D'Antan" is a pleasant surprise and its flavours are balanced in an almost magical way.
Many years ago, Bruce Sanderson of Wine Spectator said : "Most Gavi are best drunk young and paired with seafood, but la Scolca's D'Antan, which is aged for 10 years in stainless steel before bottling, develops toast, wax, iodine and mineral aromas and flavors not unlike a mature Champagne."
Without a little dose of Latin "furor" and passion,or without courage, it's very difficult to reach certain targets and to imagine audacious goals.
After the bunch, land and soil give the wine its soul,it still carries the mark of its maker.
After 97 years, La Scolca is still looking forward to the future.
The quality of La Scolca and its Gavi manages to overcome fashions and trends with a strong personality and with a great character: gentle, but firm and persistent. After just one taste of its "timeless passion," it's very difficult to forget Gavi La Scolca. Chiara Soldati, export manager at la Scolca and owner of the Company, will be pleased to appear at Vinitaly HALL 10 PIEMONTE, BOOTH P2 to share the great taste of La Scolca D'Antan.
