Wine Maker Notes
Ferrari Rosé is made using the traditional metodo classico. After a hand-harvest in September, the wine undergoes a gentle pressing and macerates with the skins for a brief time to extract just the right amount of color. The first fermentation then occurs in tanks. The wine is then bottled and a second fermentation occurs with selected yeasts. The resulting wine is matured for 25-30 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).
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.
The story of Ferrari began with a man, Giulio Ferrari, and with his dream of creating a wine in It..
A sparkling wine of pronounced finesse. Perfect served as an aperitif or with lighter dishes, especially seafood.
