Wine tasting notes

Tiny, soft, and sparkling bubbles that light up the glass with a golden colour. On the nose, this wine offers a broad and varied palette of aromas, with fruity scents of Rennet apples and candied citrus fruits and floral scents of camomile and lily of the valley that overlap with delightful salty and spicy notes. On the palate, it mesmerises with the complexity of its aromas, emphasised by its very low dosage. Hints of citrus fruits, dry fruits, and vanilla combine in a harmonious symphony of flavours, supported by an enjoyable saltiness.

Now we're talking. The 2007 Trento Metodo Classico Extra Brut Giulio Ferrari Riserva del Fondatore (disgorged in 2018) is a pure expression of Chardonnay. The grapes were fermented in stainless steel, and the wine ages in the bottle on its own yeasts for at least ten years. Perhaps the secret of this flagship sparkling wine is the carefully measured atmospheric pressure that is applied. The medium to full-bodied wine is soft and yielding yet determined and firm at the same time. I just love the lavish intensity of the warm and balanced 2007 vintage. Some 60,000 bottles and 1,500 magnums were made.
