Only in the best years, only from the best grapes, made this prestigious Gavi DOCG “Gavi dei Gavi – La Scolca®” that, after having aged up to 10 years in our cellar, arrive at the bottle in a unmistakable intensity and nobility of feelings that only the time can give to the “Great Wines”.

Rare wine, which must be drunk slowly, thanking to the time that made it so special and so unique, meditating on the extraordinary feelings that, like in the Proust’s “Recherche”, remember the tastes of distant and ancient memories, like ancient are the techniques with which, with patience, this wine is made.
In fact only the slowness, the respectful await, the long experience and the patient art, learn in eighty years of wine making, allows to give this intense harmony of perfumes and tastes, where power and fineness join in one splendid equilibrium, brings us again to the nature and to the feelings of D’Antan®.
