Ferrari Maximum Brut NV - Magnum - Wine

Tasting Notes

A deep straw yellow. A gentle, yet positive and persistent bouquet, with a note of ripe fruit accompanied by hints of crusty bread, hazelnuts and variegated floral aromas. Dry, elegant and well-balanced. It displays notable personality, with the intense fruity notes that are typical of Chardonnay accompanied by appealing nuances of vanilla and yeast that linger for a long time on the palate.

Production Notes

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. The vineyards of Chardonnay are on the slopes of the mountains of Trentino, in various communes in the Val dAdige, Val di Cembra and Valle dei Laghi. Vines are planted at an altitude of between 300 and 700 metres, with south-eastern and south-western exposure. A strict selection of just Chardonnay grapes, harvested by hand in the second half of September. Aging for at least 36 months, on selected yeasts from Ferrari�s 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.
