Ferrari is the leading producer in Italy of
sparkling wine made by the Metodo Classico.
Every bottle is a one-off, conceived, nurtured
and perfected according to the strict precepts
of Giulio Ferrari, which the Lunellis have made their
own and which are also, today, the guiding
principles of the production regulations
After the grapes are harvested they are
taken for pressing which, as gentle as a
caress, prepares the must for its encounter
with the yeasts. Now is the moment
of the first fermentation, which maintains the
varietal aromas of the original grapes.
The second fermentation begins with the addition
to the base wine of the "liqueur de tirage”.
Then the precious golden liquid will rest for
between two and ten years, depending on
which type of wine is desired.
The dark and silence of the cellar is the setting
for the ongoing rite known as “remuage”: the
eighth of a turn each day that is necessary to
make the sediment from the fermentation slide
down towards the cork. It will then be expelled
by disgorging , the operation that gives a
Metodo Classico .wine its characteristic clarity
The process continues with the addition of the
“liqueur d’expédition”, in whose secret formula
resides the artist’s touch that defines the
style of each individual bottle.
