Ferrari F.lli Lunelli Riserva del Fondatore Giulio Ferrari Rosé Extra Brut 2006 Trento Doc
The newest member of the Ferrari family is the exciting 2006 Trento Metodo Classico Extra Brut Rosé Giulio Ferrari Riserva del Fondatore.
This wine does indeed make a grand entrance. The fruit is so supple and ripe and the beading is extra fine and silky as it glides over the palate. The color is dark pink and raspberry with polished copper highlights.
It finishes with subtle mineral notes of crushed rock and granite that are an undeniable signature of winemaking in Italy's Dolomites. This mid-weight sparkling wine ages on the lees for 11 years, and aromas of baked baguette and brioche linger long.
