A vintage Blanc de Blancs of incontrovertible excellence, obtained just from Chardonnay grapes from the Lunelli family’s own vineyards. After a long period of maturation in the bottle it becomes a synthesis of elegance, freshness and harmonious complexity.
Grapes: A strict selection of just Chardonnay grapes, harvested by hand in mid-September.
Length of maturation: 5 years, on selected yeasts from Ferrari’s own cultures.
Production zone: Hillside vineyards owned by the Lunelli around Trento, lying at 300 - 700 meters (985 – 2,300 ft.) above sea level and with south-easterly or south-westerly exposure.
Alcohol level: 12.5% vol.
First vintage produced: 1971
appearance: Straw yellow with pale golden highlights.
bouquet: An intense bouquet, but of particular finesse, with scents of almond blossom, rennet apples, a faint spiciness and a hint of crusty bread.
flavor: Dry, crisp and elegant, with a very persistent rounded sensation in which one finds a light fruity note of ripe apples, an attractive hint of yeast and sweet almonds and a vaguely aromatic undertone that is typical of Chardonnay.
