Producer Info:

The legend of Ferrari began with a man, Giulio Ferrari, and his dream of creating a wine in Trentino capable of competing with the best French Champagnes.

With its mountain viticulture, Trentino is an area that is extraordinarily suited to the production of sparkling wines of great elegance and complexity: the alternation of warm days and cool nights gives added quality to the grapes, giving them a rainbow of different flavours and fragrances.

It is thanks to the intuition of Giulio Ferrari that this area represents today the largest vineyard zone planted with Chardonnay in Italy; a lovely garden of vines, guarded like a treasure by the mountains that surround it.

With its natural elegance, Ferrari – among the most glittering manifestations of that art of living which is so very Italian – is an icon of style that wins you over from the very first sip.

Ferrari’s quality is the result of lots of small, daily procedures. organic fruit & a vigorous hands-on diligence in the vineyard. It is created in mountainside vineyards, in the finest areas of Trentino, and perfected in the winery using the mandatory techniques for making Trentodoc wines.

Tasting note: A lively straw yellow with faint greenish highlights. Fine and persistent perlage. On the nose it is fresh and intense, with a broad fruity note of ripe golden delicious apples and wild flowers, underpinned by a delicate scent of yeast. On the palate it is harmonious and well-balanced, with an attractive undertone of ripe fruit and hints of crusty Italian bread.
