Ferrari Perle Rose 2008

$64.95

A Rose vintage obtained from Pinot Noir grapes (80%) processed with rose vinification and Chardonnay grapes (20%) coming from the Lunelli family vineyards located on the slopes of the Trentino mountains. After a long bottle aging, it is charaterized by a delicate antique rose colour, an intense aroma with prevalent notes of small fruits and an elegant and velvety taste.

THE VINTAGE

The 2008 vintage was characterized by cool temperatures - well below the average – during the growing cycle. The spring was especially rainy and made frequent treatment of the vines necessary. The cool summer allowed the grapes destined for making sparkling wines to retain good acidity and develop an interesting aromatic profile. In August, the stable, sunny weather led to good ripening of the grapes.

TASTING NOTES

On the eye: The elegant perlage is resplendent amidst its old rose hues.

On the nose: The bouquet is intense, dominated by elegant notes of berries. The attractive scents of roses and raspberries give way to perceptions of biscuits and hints of candied orange.

The palate: It is precious and velvety, supported by excellent structure that highlights the typical qualities of Pinot Noir. It is enhanced by a delicate hint of spices, sweet almonds and yeast. The finish is long and persistent.
