BACKGROUND

Paradoxically, Italy’s most famous metodo classico sparkling wine was started with the desire to compete with the best French Champagnes. Giulio Ferrari, a Trentino native, started his venerable sparkling wine house in 1902, after studying winemaking in France. Convinced that his native region’s terroir was ideal for growing Chardonnay, he produced three of his now best-known cuvées – Ferrari Brut, Perlé and Giulio Ferrari – as blanc de blancs. This innovative approach quickly paid off. Ferrari wines consistently receive some of Italy’s top accolades, including being awarded Tre Bicchieri 22 years in a row.

TERROIR & VINTAGE NOTES

With its mountain viticulture (the Dolomites), Trentino is an area well-suited to the production of sparkling wines of great elegance and complexity. Large diurnal temperature range and high altitudes ensures high acidity and freshness in the grapes. With 300 acres of vineyards, Ferrari represents the largest estate in the Trentino region.

WINEMAKING

Ferrari Perlé is made using the traditional metodo classico. After a hand-harvest at the end of September, the wine undergoes a gentle pressing.

TASTING NOTES

The wine demonstrates a delicate rose hue. On the nose, an intense yet fine and elegant bouquet, with dominant notes of ripe berry fruits (redcurrants and raspberries). The palate is elegant and velvety. Excellent fruit with the attractive and refined character typical of Pinot Nero, enhanced by delicate notes of spice, sweet almonds and yeast. All of these components contribute to the wine's notable harmony and persistence. A vintage sparkling wine of pronounced finesse. Perfect with salmon or any other meaty fish.
