A tale of innovation, sustainability and, at the same time, a courageous choice in times of pandemic to look to the fifth generation. La Scolca presents “Solui”, a new wine, a different wine but in line with the style of the excellent Gavi wines that have always been La Scolca’s core business for 100 years.
A “Solo Lui” created with Sauvignon grapes and a blend of Piedmontese white grapes (strictly 100% La Scolca grapes). This wine looks to the future, with 100 years of history give to the family brand, an innovative and contemporary approach without ever losing contact and the link with the soil and its land. A unique product, a soloist among the Gavi. As always, the La Scolca Brand has a futuristic projection, a vision that often goes against the trend. Here then is a wine with the courage to dare that represents a significant exception and wants to seize with positivity even in the most challenging times, the world’s substantial changes, without compromise and fear. The fourth generation, represented by Chiara Soldati, celebrates the past, the origins, the family but looks to the future, to the fifth generation, to new challenges and new scenarios. “We wanted to bet on a wine that was different from all other Gavi dei Gavi wines, a sauvignon blanc and blend of Piedmontese white grape varieties entirely produced on the estate“, – says Chiara Soldati. An elegant and complex wine, the result of a balanced blend and vinified. This new wine is also a tribute to my mother Luisa Soldati, an example of a modern woman, of solidity and determination, who always encouraged me to achieve great and ambitious goals“.
“A wine without worries”, with its fragrant aromas, pleasant fruity notes of golden apple, peach and subtle hints of mint and lovely freshness of taste. Excellent for the most eclectic food pairings – mainly fish and vegetable dishes – can satisfy very different and multigenerational palates and tastes. The root of the name “Solui” recalls the noun “Sun” from the Latin sol – solis, to represent a sign of light, rebirth and renaissance. Solitary, unique, like a Solo Lui and like a radiant Sun. “Solui” also stands out for the elegance and refinement of the label, white, bright and essential, produced by Sanfaustino Label, and for the “green” look of the packaging, created with 100% recycled paper, therefore with a message of sustainability and future. The message of great attention to sustainability and environmental protection underlines two fundamental aspects of the corporate philosophy of La Scolca, which over the years has invested a great deal in caring for the land and vineyards and in implementing the energy efficiency process.
“Solui” is destined for the Italian and foreign markets, confirming the company’s international vocation, which is now present in over 50 countries. Intended for multi-channel distribution, for the launch in Italy, an exclusive partnership has been established with Winelivery, an online sales platform growing steadily and has a widespread network in over 50 Italian cities. For the rest, it can be found, together with the entire La Solca production, directly in the winery.
