Sparkling Wine

Ferrari PerlĂ© 2010, Alto Adige, Trentino D.O.C., Italy: The 2010 vintage of Ferrari's Chardonnay-based sparkling wine is stunning! The winery uses the Trento Metodo Classico, which is the same as in Champagne with the second fermentation taking place in the bottle. The PerlĂ© Brut is crisp and dry yet has extraordinary richness and a creamy, mouth-filling texture. Aromas of freshly baked bread, green apple and toasted almond. This wine was disgorged in early 2017, yet has a long life ahead of it. Pair with shellfish, seafood and romantic dinners. Food pairings: quiches, egg dishes, fresh steamed seafood and shellfish.
