Ferrari Perle Rose 2014

$59.99

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 characterised by a delicate antique rose color, an intense aroma with prevalent notes of small fruits and an elegant and velvety taste.

THE VINTAGE

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.

TASTING NOTES

On the eye: Along with a lively, brilliant old rose color with salmon-like nuances, the wine reveals a refined perlage in the glass.

On the nose: Rich and multi-faceted, offering suggestions of cherry, dog rose and orange, combined with an initial hint of vinosity, a touch of talc and a whiff of peach kernels.

The palate: The wine displays rich, full, potent and chewy fruit, whose concentration, depth and balance make it very appealing and satisfying to drink. The finish offers hints of red fruits and spicy bread.
