Additional Information on La Scolca Rugre Sparkling NV

Winery: La Scolca

Varietal: Cortese

Cortese varietal grapes are one of the more traditionally varietals used for making white wines in the northern Italian region of Piedmont. Here, they have been grown for white wine production for well over five hundred years, and are an important part of the regions viticultural identity. Cortese grapes produce remarkably elegant and crisp white wines, full of delicate flavors Most commonly, they are said to hold notes of green fruits such as lime and greengage, and this freshness and tartness has led to them being named the most ideal Italian white wine for matching with the seafood of the northern Italian regions. Their moderate acidity results in a medium bodied wine, although cooler years often raise the acid levels in the grapes, making tarter, sharper wines.

Region: Piedmont

The beautiful region of Piedmont in the north west of Italy is responsible for producing many of Europe's finest red wines. Famous appellations such as Barolo and Barbaresco are the envy of wine-makers all over the world, and attract plenty of tourism as a result of their traditional techniques and the stunning setting they lie in. The region has a similar summer climate to nearby French regions such as Bordeaux, but the rest of their year is considerably colder, and far drier as a result of the rain shadow cast by the Alps. The wineries which cover much of Piedmont have, over many generations, mastered how to make the most of the Nebbiolo, Dolcetto and Barbera grapes which thrive here, and nowadays are beginning to experimenting with many imported varietals to increase the region's range and meet international demand.

Country: Italy

There are few countries in the world with a viticultural history as long or as illustrious as that claimed by Italy. Grapes were first being grown and cultivated on Italian soil several thousand years ago by the Greeks and the Pheonicians, who named Italy 'Oenotria' – the land of wines – so impressed were they with the climate and the suitability of the soil for wine production. Of course, it was the rise of the Roman Empire which had the most lasting influence on wine production in Italy, and their influence can still be felt today, as much of the riches of the empire came about through their enthusiasm for producing wines and exporting it to neighbouring countries. Since those times, a vast amount of Italian land has remained primarily for vine cultivation, and thousands of wineries can be found throughout the entire length and breadth of this beautiful country, drenched in Mediterranean sunshine and benefiting from the excellent fertile soils found there. Italy remains very much a 'land of wines', and one could not imagine this country, its landscape and culture, without it.
