Ferrari Perle Bianco Riserva 2009 - September 2019 Decanter review
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. He was a pioneer; it was he who was the first to realize the extraordinary vocation of his area, and it was he who first made substantial plantings of Chardonnay in Italy. The third generation of Marcello, Matteo, Camilla and Alessandro now lead the company with the aim of combining innovation and tradition, taking Ferrari around the world. Ferrari’s quality is the result of lots of small, daily procedures. Their wines are created in mountainside vineyards, in the finest areas of Trentino and perfected in the winery using the mandatory techniques for making Trentodoc wines.
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.

Ferrari Perle Bianco Riserva - fiche technique
The fine, persistent perlage swirls amidst it golden highlights. The highly complex bouquet reveals notes of candied citron, quince jam and floral sensations, giving way to intriguing nuances of iodine and spicy bread. Freshness and tanginess meld in perfect harmony with the refined mellowness deriving from its long maturation on the lees. A magnificently long finish, offering hints of white pepper and dried apricots.
ABV = 12.5%.
