Cortese

Cortese is a native white grape variety grown in Piedmont since the 18th century. It is found above all south of Alessandria, from Ovada to the Tortona hills. Very well known in Piedmont since the 18th century, it was at the time among the most cultivated in the area. The phylloxera that affected almost all European vineyards risked making the Cortese disappear, which was rediscovered and proposed by Mario Soldati in the early fifties. But it is around Gavi that Cortese has a great tradition and reaches the highest quality levels. Cortese di Gavi was the second DOCG denomination in Italy. in Lombardy we find it in the Oltrepo Pavese Cortese DOC, still, sparkling or sparkling wine. In Veneto, Cortese is found in the Garda Cortese DOC and in the Bianco di Custoza DOC under the synonym of Bianca Fernanda.

The Gavi of the Municipality of Gavi 'Rovereto' by Michele Chiarlo was produced for the first time with the vintage of 1996. It comes from grapes of Cortese grown and harvested in the homonymous hamlet of the municipality of Gavi, where a part of the grapes once collected, carry out the cryomaceration. Proceed with pressing and fermentation in steel containers. Still in steel, the wine then refines for 5 months on the lees. It is a white with a light, crunchy body, with a large sip that moves on a savory and fresh progression, ideal with fish and shellfish cooking.

Gavi dei Gavi 'Etichetta Nera' by La Scolca is the flagship of the estate. La Scolca is the symbolic winery for the Gavi area and this wine is the highest expression of the Cortese grape. The vineyards from which the grapes come are over 60 years old, synonymous with high quality and low but more concentrated yields. The roots, searching tens of meters deep for the nutrients they need, give this white greater elegance and complexity. The skilful process of vinification of the courteous grapes, experience gained in over ninety harvests, gives a surprising result, with a strong character, but at the same time delicate and harmonious, of excellent freshness, one of the absolute pearls for Gavi.

Gavi dei Gavi Riserva 'D'Antan' by La Scolca is obtained with a selection of the best cuve, initially destined for the production of Gavi Black Label and only in great vintages. After an aging that can last up to 10 years, only in steel tanks and on indigenous yeasts, it reaches the bottle with that unmistakable intensity and nobility of sensations that only time gives to Great Wines. Rare and unique wine, to be tasted meditating on the extraordinary taste sensations: the bouquet that evokes the sea breeze, the minerality of the earth, but also exotic fruits and honey. Only the experience of almost a century of production can give this harmony, where power and finesse come together in a splendid balance, bringing us back to nature and the sensations of Antan.
