Food Pairings for Ferrari Giulio
External Reviews for Ferrari Giulio
Giulio Ferrari 2002 - 93 points, Wine Enthusiast/ Italy’s most iconic sparkler, this is made entirely from Chardonnay and aged on its lees for at least 10 years. Layers of flavors include yeasty sensations of baked bread, pastry cream, honey, vanilla, juicy pear and candied lemon peel. It has depth and complexity, with an ultrafine mousse that enhances the creamy texture. Drink through 2020.
Giulio Ferrari 2001 - 91 points, Wine Spectator/ A rich, smoky undertow of toasted nut mixes with notes of apple, pear, preserved lemon, dried apricot and marzipan in this tightly knit, finely textured sparkler. Creamy, with lovely balance overall.
/ Many Italian wine enthusiasts consider this 100% Chardonnay their country's number one metodo classico sparkler - the wine that sets the bar for all the rest. We loved its complex bouquet of honey, dried lavender, tealeaf, pear, bread crust and unexpected mint-like notes. The mouthfeel is intense, smooth and long on the finish.
/ The big dog of Italian sparklers; made only in the best vintages and left on the lees for more than eight years; made exclusively from chardonnay; amazing complexity and longevity. A top-flight wine. Superior in taste and charactter and providing an outstanding price/value relationship.
/ One of the best vintages yet from one of Italy's best sparkling wines. The nose is a true knock-out with deep layers of intensity and perfectly seemless aromas: cookie dough, almonds, peppermint ice cream and campfire ash. The flavors unfold delicately in the mouth and are reinforced by persistent pearls of effervescence.
/ Giulio Ferrari, after his studies in France, returned to Trentino, Italy and planted Chardonnay, which no one had done before. Ferrari was convinced that through the combination of Trentino terroir, the innovative use of Chardonnay and the use of the traditional "metodo classico" would became the most famous sparkling wine in all of Italy. "The symbol of the best in Italian sparkling winemaking, the Giulio Ferrari, has spent ten years on the lees to give it more luster, as if any were needed."
Italy's Classed Growths/ Ferrari has become an Italian leader for Champagne-method winemaking. The house style shows a little extra structure and ripeness of fruit without losing the nervy intensity which distinguishes Trentino Chardonnay. The outstanding Riserva del Fondatore is a single-vintage, single-vineyard selection of exceptional richness, penetration and length.
