Ferrari Giulio Riserva 2007 - Wine

Tasting Notes

Tiny, soft, and sparkling bubbles that light up the glass with a golden colour.
On the nose, this wine offers a broad and varied palette of aromas, with fruity scents of Rennet
apples and candied citrus fruits and floral scents of camomile and lily of the valley that overlap
with delightful salty and spicy notes.
On the palate, it mesmerises with the complexity of its aromas, emphasised by its very low
dosage. Hints of citrus fruits, dry fruits, and vanilla combine in a harmonious symphony of
flavours, supported by an enjoyable saltiness. The 2004 vintage of this remarkable Trentodoc
is soft yet fresh, crisp yet elegant, and strikingly long on the finish.

Production Notes

From vineyards owned by the Lunelli family on the slopes of the mountains that lie above Trento. A strict selection of Pinot Noir grapes with a small percentage of Chardonnay, varying according to the vintage. The grapes are picked by hand. Aged at least 10 years on the lees, selected from Ferraris own cultures.

Producer Profile

Ferrari is the leading producer in Italy of sparkling wine made exclusively by the 'Metodo Classico' or classical method, where the second fermentation takes place in the bottle itself. Mastering the art of Italian living is not difficult. Simply pop open a bottle of Ferrari, the most iconic sparkling wine in Italy, 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 terroir was ideal for growing Chardonnay, he produced three of his now best-known cuvees Ferrari Brut, Perle, and Giulio Ferrari as blanc de blancs. This innovative approach quickly paid off. Ferrari wines consistently receive 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.
