Ferrari Brut Sparkling Trentino-Alto Adige
Winemaker Notes: Straw yellow with slight green reflections in color. On the nose, fresh and lasting, with significant overtones of ripe golden apples, wild flowers and a subtle and delicate fragrance of yeast. Clean and balanced in taste, with a slight and pleasant finish of ripe fruit and a hint of bread-crust.
A sparkling wine of pronounced finesse. Perfect served as an aperitif or with lighter dishes, especially seafood.
Blend: 100% Chardonnay
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "An Italian classic and a terrific value, the Ferrari NV Trento Brut is all Chardonnay that opens to crystalline luminosity and brilliance. The bouquet is straightforward and confident, delivering a clear and precise message of good cheer and easy-drinking appeal. There are notes of citrus, white peach, breakfast pastry and drying notes of crushed mineral. This is the quintessential Italian aperitivo wine."
James Suckling - "An immediately appealing sparkling wine, brimming with apple and lemon aromas, but also delicate yeasty and freshly baked white-bread notes. The creamy mousse complements the lively acidity very nicely and, in spite of the impression of lightness, the finish is long with a spot-on balance. Drink now."
Wine Enthusiast - "Aromas of white spring flower, white orchard fruit and a whiff of brioche lead the way. On the crisp palate, an elegant perlage accompanies creamy yellow apple, pear and lemon drop."
Vinous - "The Ferrari non-vintage Brut is produced from both estate vineyard Chardonnay and from growers which Ferrari holds long standing relationships with. The wine is made using metodo classico, spending up to three years maturing in bottle on the less. It’s bristling with mineral intensity, balanced by an attractive note of buttery bakeshop and crispy bread. With more time in the glass, it blossoms to show notes or crushed green apple and white flowers. A fine bead of bubbles coasts across tension-filled textures, as brisk acids bring an inner sweetness to its orchard fruits along with sweet florals, which develop toward the close. The balance here is admirable to say the least, helping to make the non-vintage Brut a remarkable value. Disgorged: 2019"
