- On sale!
Spumante Millesimato Riserva 'D’Antan' by La Scolca is produced using slow and traditional artisan processing methods and offers an unmistakable intensity and uniqueness of sensations. With the long aging in bottle, of about 10 years, in contact with native yeasts selected by us, we obtain a wine that does not seem to find age limits and that over time discovers a great and always faithful ally. A product in which the surprising freshness is accompanied by the aromas of honey, spices, dried fruit and a distant memory of chocolate, in a continuous crescendo of harmonies. A rare wine, designed for connoisseurs, the result of a particular and happy moment of nature, and of an infinite and patient work of man.
La Scolca estate was purchased between 1917 and 1919 by the great-grandfather of the current owner Giorgio Soldati who today runs the company together with his daughter Chiara Soldati.
The name of the plot derives from the ancient toponym Sfurca or "To look away" and the farmhouse that stood there was in the past a lookout post; the surname fully reflects the proud and tenacious character of the owners and their wines.
At the time of purchase, the property was partly covered by woods, partly cultivated with wheat. It was a well-studied intuition to plant Cortese vineyards in 1900 in an area exclusively dedicated to the cultivation of red berry vineyards: the name of the company was never prophetic. Production soon became a primary technical and entrepreneurial activity.
