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.
/ 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.
/ 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 estate's top-of-the-line 1997 Giulio Ferrari Riserva del Fondatore (100% Chardonnay) offers superb richness and depth in its candied apricots, flowers, honey and roasted nuts. Made in a generous, ample style, this delicious wine finishes long and sweet, with plenty of stuffing to age gracefully for another decade. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2017. It is amazing when you consider that this venerable house based in Trento has produced wines for over a century. Giulio Ferrari was an innovator in bringing Chardonnay and French production methods to Trento.
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.
