La Scolca Black Label Gavi dei Gavi

The prestigious "Gavi dei Gavi"® La Scolca, it's made with the most strict compliance and respect for nature, with the most ancient and traditional rules of winemaking, since the pruning to harvest time, with a strict and careful selection in the vineyards, approaching an age of sixty years. Using ninety years old experienced and refined winemaking rules, a model of Gavi wine it's born into our cellar. This model is nowadays an unsurpassed benchmark, the result of a long tradition of generations. It's a wine that suprises: a delicate perfume in opposition with a strong character and a great personality: a wine that remains suspended within the time. Intense and alive, harmonious and balanced, it offers a suprising freshness and continuity. The complex flint, almond and walnut scents have their ability to evolve over time: a wine with a soul of a boy but an adult's heart.
