External Reviews for Ferrari Giulio
Giulio Ferrari 2001 - 93 points, International Wine Cellar/ Medium-bright gold, with a strong stream of energetic, small, bubbles. Highly scented nose of pear, tangerine, lemon pith, honeysuckle and floral honey is further complicated by a delicate smoky nuance. Mineral-laced orchard fruit and citrus flavors are joined by almond and candied ginger notes. Finishes long and spicy, with a hint of marzipan. The Giulio Ferrari Riserva is almost every year one of Italy's best sparkling wines, offering a unique blend of vivacity and power; it also ages extremely well (ten years plus, easily).
Giulio Ferrari 2000 - 93 Points & Cellar Section, Wine Enthusiast/ An Italian classic, Riserva del Fondatore (a brut- style sparkler) offers a compelling nose that is as intense as it is complex. The aromas here span dried fruit and nuts to toast and melted butter. Its appearance is sharp and luminous and the quality of effervescence is both tonic and persistent.
Giulio Ferrari 1999/ Opulence and intensity set this wine apart and place it high on a list of the world's best sparkling wines. Made with creamy Chardonnay grapes, the brilliant bubbly delivers complexity and harmony thanks to its deep shading of mature fruit, mineral and yeast.
/ 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.
Giulio Ferrari 2001 - 92 points, Wine Spectator/ A landmark wine for those who love Italian sparklers…
Giulio Ferrari 1999/ This formidable wine, Ferrari’s flagship, comes from a single family-owned 30 acre vineyard and is aged on the lees for nine years, which explains why it’s their current release. Its paradoxical combination of mature-roasted-flavors and brilliant freshness coupled with a seductive creamy texture is an irresistible combination. The flavors explode in the mouth and the finish lasts seemingly forever. Marcello Lunelli, who along with his family owns Ferrari, appropriately calls it a “wine to eat, not to drink” because of its intense, almost chewy, character. People can debate whether to spend $100 for this or any sparkling wine, but what’s not debatable is that Italy--at least Ferrari--can make great ones.
Recommended Bottles/ At a time of the year when sparkling wine sales are at their peak, your choice of spumante is wider than ever. It's also critical for any celebratory meal. We've selected a few of our favorites below. All you need now is an ice bucket and flutes. The Ferrari vineyards (no relation to the car giant) in Trentino have long been known for producing some of Italy's finest spumante. The Giulio Ferrari, a tightly packed sparkler with aromas of bread, almond, pear and cracked white pepper, even won an Oscar del Vino for the 1997 vintage.
