Ferrari Perle 2015

$36.99

The best Chardonnay from the family’s vineyards is used to make this vintage Trentodoc; it is the wine that best summarizes the art of Ferrari. The phrasing of its taste is highly elegant, with a crescendoing finish.

THE VINTAGE

2015 stood out due to its hot, dry growing cycle. Up until June, the climate was normal, with little rainfall during the summer; irrigation therefore proved to be fundamental for the development of the vines during this season. A mild winter was followed by a regular spring, with good budding. The harvest for the Chardonnay grapes used for the Perlé began at the very end of August. From the point of view of quality, the altitude factor was very important, given the generally hot year: the height of the vineyards devoted to the production of the Perlé allowed the grapes to maintain a good level of acidity, accompanied by great complexity, structure and refined aromas.

TASTING NOTES

On the eye: Pale golden highlights adorn its straw yellow color. The perlage is extremely fine and persistent.

On the nose: Aromatic richness of extraordinary expressiveness: the scene is dominated by hints of Reinette apples and citrus fruits, accompanied by tones of white peach, almond blossom and toast-like notes.

On the palate: Elegant and harmonious, with the unmistakable fruity, aromatic sensations that are typical of Chardonnay. These are followed by a slightly almondy finish of great persistence, the result of long ageing on the yeasts.
