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."
/ An unprecedented 14 wines from Palm Bay International’s Italian portfolio have been awarded the Tre Bicchieri designation by Gambero Rosso/Slow Food Guide to Italian Wines - Italy’s premier wine review. Tre Bicchieri (“Three Glasses”) is widely regarded as Italy’s highest accolade where its nation’s wines are concerned.
Ferrari collects 4th Oscar del Vino/ By winning the Oscar for 2007, Ferrari is now confirmed as the wine that has won the most awards ever in Italy . The fact that in the nine editions of the Oscar del Vino the Trentino winery has won four times also bears witness to the continuity of excellence and extremely high quality that has very few equals worldwide.
