Ferrari Perle 2013
A vintage Blanc de Blancs, obtained from specially selected Chardonnay grapes grown in mountainside vineyards situated in those zones of Trentino that are most suitable for the production of Trentodoc. Ferrari Perlé is the icon of the Ferrari style, a synthesis of elegance, freshness and harmonious complexity. Since 1971, the first vintage produced, its extraordinary success has been repeated year after year, thanks to its extremely attractive taste profile and its versatility when matched with food.
A normal start to the spring was followed by a period of exceptional rainfall, which really put the vine growers’ skills to the test. The weather conditions stabilized with the onset of summer and the sunshine brought with it renewed peace of mind and optimism in the vineyards. Bud-break was late (as was flowering), but it was homogeneous and regular. The ripening of the grapes during August was slow, resulting in a relatively late harvest with slightly higher yields, healthy grapes and excellent quality.
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.
