STORY BEHIND THIS WINE

Wine may have been made for millennia in this beautiful corner of Piedmont bordering Liguria, but it is the Soldati family of Tenuta dei La Scolca, beginning in 2019 and today led by Gorgio Soldati, that has made modern Gavi what it is today, trademarking the Gavi di Gavi name in 1969 and helping to create the DOC in 1974 and the DOCG in 1998. Their ‘Black Label’ has for decades been regarded as the quality benchmark for the Gavi, strengthening the wine’s reputation and image such that is now enjoyed by celebrities including film and sports stars, European royalty and even President Obama.

OUR IMPRESSION

There are no designated grand cru areas within Gavi but if there were, the volcanic hillsides of Rovereto, where the La Scolca’s Cortese grapes grow on clay soils shot through with limestone, would surely be amongst them. The white label is cool fermented in stainless steel and the shows a delightful mix of pear and lime fruit, with white flowers supported by a chalky zesty fresh palate. A perfect match for a variety of antipasta, shellfish, fish and salads.
