Winemaker Notes

Bright straw-yellow in color with a golden sheen. A highly delicate nose of rare intensity, in which the fruity aroma of the varietal and the scent of honey combined with a hint of vanilla and white chocolate, create a perfect harmony of fragrances. An elegant and balanced palate is offered, with a velvety, rich body; flavors of vanilla, acacia blossoms, honey and dry hay are combined with flowery scents; all ensuring that the wine has a noble and lingering finish.

Blend: 100% Chardonnay

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Now we're talking. The 2007 Trento Metodo Classico Extra Brut Giulio Ferrari Riserva del Fondatore (disgorged in 2018) is a pure expression of Chardonnay. The grapes were fermented in stainless steel, and the wine ages in the bottle on its own yeasts for at least ten years. Perhaps the secret of this flagship sparkling wine is the carefully measured atmospheric pressure that is applied. The medium to full-bodied wine is soft and yielding yet determined and firm at the same time. I just love the lavish intensity of the warm and balanced 2007 vintage.

Wine Enthusiast
Aromas of toast, bread crust and mature exotic fruit waft out of the glass. On the creamy palate, tangy acidity lifts ripe Golden Delicious apple, candied citrus zest, ginger and hazelnut, while a silky perlage lends finesse. It finishes on a honeyed mineral note.
WS 92
Wine Spectator
An elegant sparkler, with a delicate, lacy mousse and vibrant acidity, featuring a finely meshed flavor range of poached white cherry, Meyer lemon preserves, grilled nut, toast point and ground spice. Long and racy on the saline-infused finish. Drink now through 2027.

Mastering the art of Italian living is not difficult. Simply pop open a bottle of Ferrari, Italy’s most iconic sparkling wine, and you will find luxury, glamour, and undeniable quality in every sip.

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.

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. 

In 1952, Giulio Ferrari, having no children of his own, chose friend and local merchant Bruno Lunelli as successor for his beloved business. Today, the third generation of the Lunelli family is at the helm. Bruno Lunelli’s passion and entrepreneurial talent passed on to his sons, Franco, Gino and Mauro, who established Ferrari as the market leader in Italy and the nation’s celebratory wine par excellence. Production is in the hands of a capable team of eight winemakers and four agronomists, led by chief winemaker Marcello Lunelli. The pursuit of excellence in all areas of Ferrari production and management is an enduring family legacy with several cousins involved from the new generation: Marcello’s cousin, Matteo Lunelli, is the Chairman of Ferrari F.lli Lunelli SpA, Camilla Lunelli heads up global communications, and Alessandro Lunelli, an engineer by training, is responsible for planning and technical oversight. This generation leads the company with the aim of combining innovation and tradition, promoting Ferrari around the world as ambassadors of the Italian Art of Living.

The southern part of Italy’s northeastern Alpine region, Trentino, produces quality wines from international varieties. But its most exceptional native variety, Teroldego, with plantings concentrated around the sandy, gravelly, limestone soils of its Campo Rotaliano district, makes a deep purple-hued red wine with scents and flavors of wild blackberry, herbs, espresso and cocoa.

Representing the topmost expression of a Champagne house, a vintage Champagne is one made from the produce of a single, superior harvest year. Vintage Champagnes account for a mere 5% of total Champagne production and are produced about three times in a decade. Champagne is typically made as a blend of multiple years in order to preserve the house style; these will have non-vintage, or simply, NV on the label. The term, "vintage," as it applies to all wine, simply means a single harvest year.
