The La Scolca Black Label is sourced from the estate’s 60 year-old vines (average) with yields ranging from 70 quintals per hectare to 50 quintals per hectare for the oldest vines. Some vines, yield only 3-4 clusters per vine, encouraging concentration, depth and complexity. Vines are located on the hills surrounding the Villa La Scolca. Soils are of volcanic origin, composed of calcareous-clay with veins of chalky limestone similar to that found in Champagne and Chablis, giving a characteristic flinty character.
