Winemaker's Notes

Ferrari 2007 Ferrari-Carano Fume Blanc is a blend of vineyard lots from various appellations of Sonoma County — Dry Creek, Alexander and Russian River Valleys. They focus on sites with well-drained soils and different rootstocks in order to craft a wine that is refined and elegant with a rich palette of fruit.

Zesty flavors and aromas of grapefruit, citrus and honeydew mingle with a subtle grassy note that is complemented by a lingering finish of mango and guava. Aging partially in stainless steel and older French Oak gives this wine a crisp freshness and a subtle oak character that adds great complexity and depth.

The 2007 Fume Blanc pairs well with simple seafood dishes, and also holds up nicely with white meats such as veal and pork. The wine has lively flavors that go well with spicy and ethnic cuisines such as Japanese, Vietnamese, Thai, Chinese, Korean, Mexican and Southwestern dishes.

I agree with Harry,it's such a smooth wine for it's youth. I found it very elegant and not so harsh and grapefruity as some sauv. blancs. I enjoyed simply on it's own. Delightful !

I recently finished reading the novel “A Very Good Year” by Mike Weiss. The novel follows the story of a bottle of Ferari-Carrano Fume Blanc from vine to bottle. I highly recommend the book for any oenophile and I highly recommend picking up a bottle of the book’s protagonist to anyone. The 2007 vintage of the Fume Blanc was wonderfully done. I was able to pick up a bottle for $25, which is a fair price for this wine. As one would expect from a well done Fume Blanc the texture was very light and the alcohol diminutive next to the flavor. The finish is surprisingly long for such a young white. I enjoyed the bottle sans food, but I imagine it would compliment any light fare marvelously.

Learn About Sonoma County

Twice as large as Napa in size, Sonoma County only makes about a half the amount of wine as her northeasterly neighbor. But Sonoma, with her size, is able to vouch for more diversity within her borders, including sub-AVAs that are climatically varied. The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...
