Ferrari Perle Trento Brut NV
"The NV Brut Metodo Classico is a beautifully balanced, crisp sparkling wine with excellent definition in its white peaches, apricots, smoke and flowers. Medium in body, Brut Metodo Classico offers excellent balance in a mid-weight style. This is one of the finest sparkling wines (from any country) for the money." Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Editorial Reviews for Ferrari Perle Trento Brut
Quite yeasty on the nose with some lovely, pithy citrus fruit notes that recall lime oil. Very fine mousse in the mouth with a touch of sweetness early on then more acid driven flavors of tart apples doused with lemon juice over a nice base of evolved, leery character. Finishes stingily with a return of a sweet edge and nice lifted inner mouth notes of flowers and brioche over a base of orchard fruits. Easy to enjoy and fairly complex and elegant at this price. 89pts

Bubbles...Bubbles...Bubbles/ From Italy came the Ferrari Brut, non-vintage, 100% Chardonnay sparkling wine. This is an interesting creamy, straw yellow sparkler from Trentino, with a lively and persistent mousse and aromatic notes of baked apple, gingerbread, and yeast that linger on this finish.
Top 100 Wines of 2006/ A tightly packed, mineral-driven sparkler with aromas of bread, white stone, almond, pear, banana and cracked white pepper. The mouth is rendered lively and fresh thanks to fruit and toast accents; a taunt, yet expressive whole.
/ Giulio Ferrari's NV Brut is a gorgeous effort, especially considering its budget-friendly price. Medium in body, it reveals flowers, sweet peaches and smoke, with excellent persistence on the palate and terrific poise. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2010. It is amazing to 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.
Bubbling Over/ Balanced and clean, with excellent mousse, toasty brioche aroma; crisp, mouthwatering toasty flavors; great acidity and a long citrus finish.

/ In this world of ever-soaring Champagne prices, enthusiasts of the bubbly no doubt are looking for credible alternatives. Italy would be my first choice for quality and value on the non-vintage brut front, and Ferrari is certainly among the leading producersof metodo classicosparkling wines, which are made after the Champagne fashion, witha second fermentation in the bottle. The current release of Ferrari Brut is a lovely, well-balanced sparkler that offers a gentle mousse, hints of ripe apple and white flower, and a touch of brioche for added complexity. This cuvee is aged two years on the yeast before disgorgement, giving it enough gravitas to handle main courses but with enough finesse and delicacy to serve as an aperitif, too. Excellent value!
/ The latest set of releases by Ferrari confirms what the Lunellis have been claiming for years; the Perle bottlings (a term indicating softer sparklers, much like France's cremants, bottled at lower atmospheric pressure) really are fine. These wines can rival better Champagnes, but keep in mind that they offer less yeasty nuttiness and more ripe fruit character. Pale straw with a fine mousse. Floral, apricot and white pepper aromas, accented by grapefruit. Nicely balanced, very fresh wine with sneaky concentration to its white pear, green apple and apricot flavors. Finishes fairly creamy and long.
