• "Giulio Ferrari" Metodo Classico Riserva Trento DOC 2008 Extra Brut

      “Giulio Ferrari” Metodo Classico Riserva Trento DOC 2008 Extra Brut

      Cult spumante named after the founder of the winery: bright, luminous yellow, lively, fine mousseux. The bouquet is inviting, with fine yeasty nuances and subtle grapefruit and citrus tones. Plenty of substance on the palate, beautiful creamy texture, very elegant and underlaid with a fine nutty note. The fresh structure and the harmonious, long finish are wonderfully stimulating. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Strong straw yellow, persistent perlage with fine grain. Opens with intense notes of baked apple, candied pineapple, some coffee and roasted hazelnuts, delicate nougat. Salty and full-bodied on the palate, complex and with fine mineral notes, very long finish. Falstaff

      "Rich and evolved nose with mature yellow fruit, honey and nuts leading to a complex citrus-infused palate of crème pâtissière and melon." Decanter

      "Bread-crust, honey and hazelnut aromas give way to ripe stone fruit and dried herb. The aromas carry over to the rich complex palate along with orange rind and dried pineapple. Fresh acidity keeps it youthful." Wine Enthusiast

    About the winemakersFerrariTrentino-South Tyrol

    The Ferrari myth began in 1902 with a man named Giulio Ferrari and his dream of creating a wine in Trentino that could compete with the best sparkling wines from France. Since he himself had no children, Giulio, who learned everything about champagne and classic bottle fermentation at the Wine Institute in Montpellier, chose Bruno Lunelli, a Trento wine merchant from many aspirants, to continue living his dream. With great success: the Ferrari winery, under the management of the Lunelli family, has long since become one of the most important reference points in Italian sparkling wine production. Because it embodies the Metodo Classico so excellently, the winery was selected by the Champagne & Sparkling Wine World Championships 2015 with the title "Sparkling Wine Producer of the Year" honored. In the same year Ferrari also received the award "European Winery of the Year" at the Wine Star Awards of the US trade magazine "Wine Enthusiast".

    Under the management of Gino, Franco and Mauro Lunelli, the Trentino winery has become a leader in its home country. Today, with Marcello, Matteo, Camilla and Alessandro, the third generation of the family is keeping Giulio Ferrari's dream alive. The quartet forms a competent team with a broad professional base that focuses on harmony and understanding. Over the years, the number of vineyards has steadily increased, and the sites have reached ever greater heights. All cultivated areas - the hectare yields are drastically reduced - are currently being converted to the principles of organic viticulture. The landowners want to protect the environment even more than before and further improve the high quality of their worldwide esteemed spumanti, but they also want to remain at the forefront of the fiercely contested markets.

    The excellent sparkling wines of the Lunelli family, divided into five lines, have a high recognition value and are a real pleasure to drink. The grapes grow in the best growing areas of Trentino and have been cultivated in a modern and visitor-friendly cellar since 1986 under the aegis of the production manager and oenologist Ruben Larentis in accordance with the guidelines of Trento DOC. The raw material of the diverse and highly decorated pearly drops is mostly fruits of the Chardonnay variety. In addition to Ferrari, Gruppo Lunelli also owns vineyards in Umbria and Tuscany, and in the Prosecco region of Veneto it owns half of the top-quality Bisol vineyard. SUPERIORE.DE

    "The name Ferrari is a synonym for success - whether in the sparkling or in the paddock. But the Lunelli del Ferrari are far more than just sparkling wine producers, they set standards as cellar masters as well as agricultural entrepreneurs."Gambero Rosso
