Ferrari Riserva Lunelli 2005
It is a great reserve, the result of a winery using centuries-old traditions on which the Lunelli family wanted to put its own signature. It is a Trentodoc sparkling wine with an extraordinary structure obtained only from Chardonnay grapes coming from Lunelli’s vineyards that surround Villa Margon, a splendid XVI century villa on the slopes of Monte Bondone, welcome center of the Ferrari Winery. This wine is a fascinating synthesis of tradition and innovation. It is the only Ferrari label whose first fermentation takes place in large Austrian oak barrels, as in the days of Bruno Lunelli. The maturation in oak adds body, an intriguing richness of taste and harmonious roundness. After at least 7 years of bottle aging, the Ferrari Riserva Lunelli is characterized by complex aromas, a wide structure which gives it an extraordinary gastronomic versatility and make this label ideal to accompany the entire meal. This is the fourth year of the Ferrari Riserva Lunelli production; a Ferrari label of unusual charm that with perseverance is becoming loved even by the most discerning palates less accustomed to a Ferrari less defined by the grape variety, such as the Perlé and the Perlé Nero, and more independent, which continues and expands its gastronomic versatility thanks to the richness of structure combined with an entrancing elegance.
It is characterized by an intense yellow with golden reflections.
At the nose the ripe fruity aroma of the Chardonnay is the prestigious partner for the citrus and candied orange peel notes which exalt in unexpected as intriguing spiciness.
On the palate its prestige is made of smoothness, minerality and juiciness, confirming what the olfactory examination anticipated.
