Ferrari was born over a century ago in 1902 through the efforts of Giulio Ferrari. After his studies in France, Ferrari 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”, he could make world-class sparkling wines. By 1906, the awards started to roll in and Ferrari was well on its way to producing what would shortly become the most famous sparkling wine in all of Italy.  In 1952, Giulio Ferrari, not having any children, chose Bruno Lunelli, a friend and local merchant as successor for his beloved business. Today the third generation of the Lunelli family is at the helm and the winery could not be in better hands as it continues to be a perennial Tre Bicchieri winner. Read less

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.

/ 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.
