Wine Review: If there ever was a true substitute for Champagne, wines from Franciacorta and Trento would be as close as it gets. Ferrari has long been one of the purest examples of great Italian sparkling wine. The Brut NV is 100% Chardonnay from the hills of Trentino that has all of the yeasty/toasty notes of great Champagne. The palate displays fruits like Golden Delicious, Asian pear, and Bartlett pear. There are deeper tones like Creme Brulee and caramel as well, but these add depth and not sweetness. A long finish of bright acidity and yeast makes this a no-brainer. - Nicolay

Winemaker Notes: Color: Straw yellow with slight green reflections Bouquet: Fresh and lasting, with significant overtones of ripe golden apples, wild flowers and a subtle and delicate fragrance of yeast. Taste: Clean and balanced, with a slight and pleasant finish of ripe fruit and a hint of bread-crust. Serving Suggestions: A sparkling wine of pronounced finesse. Perfect served as an aperitif or with lighter dishes, especially seafood.

Organic status: not organic

Buy it: Use 1000 Corks to find stores that sell Ferrari Brut.
