About This Wine:

Ferrari Brut is made using the traditional metodo classico. After a hand-harvest in September, the wine undergoes a gentle pressing and first fermentation in tanks. The wine is then bottled and a second fermentation occurs with selected yeasts. The resulting wine is matured at least 24 months on the lees, with a gradual turning of the bottle upside-down (rumuage). Sediment is removed through disgorgement. The final touch is the addition of the liqueur d'expedition (a tiny dose of sugar) and selected wines (the recipe for which remains a closely guarded Ferrari secret).

Ratings & Reviews:

91 Points - James Suckling:
"An immediately appealing sparkling wine, brimming with apple and lemon aromas, but also delicate yeasty and freshly baked white-bread notes. The creamy mousse complements the lively acidity very nicely and, in spite of the impression of lightness, the finish is long with a spot-on balance." (Jun 2021)

91 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"Aromas of white spring flower, white orchard fruit and a whiff of brioche lead the way. On the crisp palate, an elegant perlage accompanies creamy yellow apple, pear and lemon drop." (Apr 2021)

91 Points - Wine Advocate
"An Italian classic and a terrific value, the Ferrari NV Trento Brut is all Chardonnay that opens to crystalline luminosity and brilliance. The bouquet is straightforward and confident, delivering a clear and precise message of good cheer and easy-drinking appeal. There are notes of citrus, white peach, breakfast pastry and drying notes of crushed mineral. This is the quintessential Italian aperitivo wine." (Feb 2021)
