Made with Chardonnay grapes, the non-vintage Trento Brut is loaded tight with pretty mineral tones, ripe apricot and yeasty overtones. The bouquet shows smoke and campfire ash with limestone shards and spice. This bright sparkler is easy and light, but also full of life. The perlage is silky and persistent.

Wine Maker Notes
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 (rémuage). 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).
A sparkling wine of pronounced finesse. Perfect served as an aperitif or with lighter dishes, especially seafood.
