Ferrari Perle 2010
A vintage Blanc de Blancs obtained from a special selection of Chardonnay grapes grown in mountainside vineyards, situated in the finest zones of Trentino for the production of Trentodoc. Ferrari Perle is an icon of Ferrari style, a synthesis of elegance, freshness and harmonizing complexity. From 1971, the first year of production, Ferrari Perle has repeated, year after year, its extraordinary success thanks to its wonderful charm and gastronomic versatility.
The 2010 vintage was characterised by above-average rainfall, but with a regular climate from the point of view of temperatures. The summer began with some welcome rains, and then continued with a hot, dry July. Abundant rain fell in August, but there was then a period of stable, breezy weather in the first half of September which proved providential for the base wines, for which the grapes were harvested before it began to rain once again. The fruit attained full ripeness, with excellent acidity and complex aromas.
On the eye: Deep yellow with golden highlights. The perlage is extremely fine and persistent.
On the nose: A particularly fine, intense bouquet, with hints of almond blossom and reinette apples; slightly spicy and with a hint of bread crust.
On the palate: Seductive and elegant, with a very persistent velvety texture, in which one finds a light fruity note of ripe apples, pleasant hints of yeast and sweet almonds and a faintly aromatic quality that is typical of Chardonnay.
