Ferrari Maximum Brut DOC Trento
Established in northern Italy’s Trentino region over a century ago, Ferrari has earned a worldwide reputation as the premier source of luxury metodo classico sparkling wines from Italy. Ferrari was founded in 1902 by Giulio Ferrari. After studying in France, Giulio returned to Trentino convinced that his native region’s terroir was ideal for growing Chardonnay grapes suitable for the production of world-class sparkling wines. A pioneer in Italian viticulture, Ferrari was the first Italian winemaker and viticulturalist to dedicate his vineyards almost entirely to Chardonnay – and by 1906 the awards had begun to roll in. Ferrari was well on its way to producing what would soon become the most famous sparkling wine in all of Italy. In fact, Ferrari is a perennial 22-time winner of the Tre Bicchieri award, Italy’s highest wine accolade, often with Giulio Ferrari and with the most recent honor going to the 2005 Ferrari Perlé Nero bottling in 2012.
Colour and perlage
A brilliant straw yellow,with remarkably persistent perlage.
Sensations of apple, underpinned by tones of biscuit and citron. Amidst the notes of ripe fruit one finds hints of crusty bread, deriving from its more than three years’ageing on the yeasts.
A fresh and lively flavour, enhanced by the velvety softness of the bubbles. The typical fruity notes of Chardonnay combine with fragrances of yeast.
