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 2004 - 94 Points, JamesSuckling.com/ Golden color. Intense aromas of cooked apple, peach and pie crust follow through to a full body and rich, decadent flavors of bread dough, crème brûlée and hints of toffee. Very flavorful finish but remains crisp and lively. Drink now.
Giulio Ferrari 1999 - 92 Points, The Wine Advocate/ The estate's top of the line 1999 Giulio Ferrari Riserva del Fondatore is made from Chardonnay sourced from the family's oldest vineyards. This richly-textured wine flows from the glass with finely knit layers of ripe fruit, smoke, minerals and spices. Medium in body, it offers outstanding length and a refined, caressing finish. While the wine is delicious today, it will be even better in another year or two.
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.
