  • Sessanea - Italian Quality Wines

    Ferrari "Giulio Ferrari Riserva del Fondatore Rosé" 2006 - The Giulio Ferrari Riserva, from Trentino, is one of Italy's most treasured sparkling wines, and the 2006 is another gem; a powerful sparkling wine that will seemingly live forever (well, at least another 10 years). This year it is joined for the first time by a Giulio Ferrari Riserva Rosé, produced primarily from Pinot Nero, with a small percentage of Chardonnay). This is a great sparkling wine, simply stunning. There are aromas of currant, red plum and strawberry, while there is very good, but not too high acidity. Aged 11 years on the lees, this has remarkable freshness. Delicious, with outstanding texture. Arguably the finest sparkling wine from Italy.
