Review

From the historical and most deep-rooted reference winery, for the gentlest and straightest white wine in Piedmont, here is a piece of Italian wine history: the Gavi La Scolca. Pale straw in colour, it expresses to the nose the typical fine, mineral, pleasantly fresh bouquet, with hints of lime flowers, slightly citrus, mineral and fragrant. The taste is delicate, very dry and vertical, characterised by a rather accentuated acidulous vein, which makes each sip exceptional, versatile and never tiring. Naturally recommended with appetizers, fish and seafood. With oysters it is unrivalled, but it can elegantly accompany white meats and vegetable quiches.

The architipal Gavi

Great value for money if you love the Cortese grape of northern Italy. La Scolca make better wines than this, but if you have a £10 budget (or thereabouts), this is perfect partner for fish, veal or, surprisingly many cheeses. My favourite drink at the moment.

Confusing, but a pleasant surprise

I am familiar with Italian white wines but always find the La Scolca brand confusing. There seem to be so many wines at varying prices with this name. At around £10 this one is reasonable value and I enjoyed its crisp Gavi flavour. But, at that price it is not the great La Scola Gavi I have enjoyed in Italy so often. I would, however, order it again.
