91 points James Suckling: "Light green-apple and acacia-honey aromas. Clean, fresh and minerally on the palate, with a light saltiness to the finish. Good quality here and good value, too. Drink now. (10/13/20)"

Founded in 1919, La Scolca is the first producer of quality Gavi and among the most historic white wine producers in Italy. La Scolca "White Label" is considered the everyday, affordable alternative to the estate’s legendary "Black Label". Although sourced from younger vines than the Black Label, this estate-grown Gavi offers similar richness and complexity from extended lees aging and a superb vineyard site. Zesty lemon aromas with some almond and stone fruit notes. Crisp, lively, mineral character with sharp acidity and a refreshing, lasting finish.

Producer notes: "100% Cortese. Light straw color. Typical Gavi nose: fine and pleasantly fresh. Delicate in the mouth, very dry, characterized by a crisp and refreshing acidity. Food Match: white meats, sushi, shrimp, shellfish, scallops, salmon, quiche, oysters, grilled vegetables, fish, crab, antipasto."
