New Ferrari Spazio Bollicine at the Fiumicino Airport
Tuesday, February 19, 2013
Ferrari Spazio Bollicine, which was recently opened at the Leonardo Da Vinci Airport in Fiumicino, is both refined and elegant, cozy and trendy. A place where taking a break during a journey becomes a special event; an experience of the best of Italy where one can taste, in an environment expressive of the best Italian design, Ferrari sparkling wine accompanied by light meals made with high-quality raw materials and representative of the culinary tradition of our country.
The venue born from the partnership with MyChef Emotion, the new division of MyChef dedicated to important initiatives and Cantine Ferrari, the Italian leader in the production of traditional method sparkling wine, to create a series of locations to explore new ways of experiencing Trentodoc. Places where sparkling wine stars in the leading role and is paired in modern combinations with the flavors of Italian cuisine. This new opening comes after the first Spazio Bollicine was opened in the square of Madonna di Campiglio and the one in Naples in the historic square of Martiri and the one overlooking the exclusive town center of Porto Cervo.
Ferrari sparkling wines communicate their essence in the combinations created by the talent of Alfio Ghezzi, Michelin-starred chef of Ferrari, who highlighted the specialties of various parts of the peninsula with simplicity and truth. The simplicity of the great Italian cured meat sliced fresh at the moment, the authenticity of the products in their natural colors synonymous with freshness and in accordance with the seasons, the beauty of the shape of intact mozzarella and tomatoes, the taste of raw and marinated fish, the purity of Garda Trentino DOP oil chosen for its character never prevaricating and the fragrance of handmade bread sticks; all presented, like a market, on a large refrigerated display arranged on white ceramic trays where a mirror reflects and bids the guest to partake in excellence. Truth is also tradition and territory, presented in both simple and tasty preparations, such as roman artichokes or chicory with anchovy, in the name of the good life that distinguishes Italy in the world.
Regarding the wine offerings, alongside a wide selection of Ferrari Trentodoc - with all the labels of the house by the glass including great vintages such as Giulio Ferrari Riserva del Fondatore 1994 – there are all the still wines from Trentino, Umbria and Tuscany of the Lunelli Estates and some prestigious labels as a tribute, in rotation, to the great families of Italian wine, starting with Gaja, Biondi Santi and Allegrini.
Around the proposed food & wine , which is the core of the experience, there is an environment specifically designed by Robilant & Associates and enhanced by high-impact elements such as Bisazza mosaics. Above all there is an obsessive attention to service that allows, thanks to the skill and courtesy of staff, a sense of conviviality typical of the squares in Italian city centers.
"Born in some of the most prestigious squares of Italy, Ferrari Spazio Bollicine arrives for the first time in an airport with an innovative concept," stated Matteo Lunelli, President of Cantine Ferrari. "This is an important step because it can serve as a model to create other places in the world dedicated to the Italian art of living of which Ferrari is an expression."
The request of Sergio Castelli, managing director of MyChef, to bring this formula in the airport was greeted with great enthusiasm by Matteo Lunelli. The immediate agreement resulted in a close working relationship, combining the experience of MyChef, a leading Italian airport catering service to Cantine Ferrari and chef Alfio Ghezzi. This proposal of high-level catering, distinctive for image and content enriched the offerings at the Airport of Rome.
"The formula of Ferrari Spazio Bollicine, as well as being of great prestige, is very suitable to the airport context where customers are sensitive to quality and innovation," stated Sergio Castelli, managing director of MyChef. "And the expertise of our division MyChef Emotion is the best response in the partnership with Cantine Ferrari for the care and attention to detail."
Ferrari Spazio Bollicine is located at Terminal 1, Area B, at gate 8.
The year 2006 was extraordinary for the grapes dedicated to Trentodoc and in particular for the Pinot Noir grapes which are grown at high altitude on the slopes of the Trentino mountains.
After a rather complex start of the year, which saw a prolonged winter followed by a late spring and early summer that was exceptionally warm, the rest of the summer presented optimal conditions in terms of both temperature and rainfall. This allowed the grapes destined to become Ferrari Perlé Nero to be of exceptional quality: perfectly healthy, balanced in their acid component and particularly rich in aromatic component.
At the nose it is recognized immediately as an important and fascinating wine. It raises the intensity of red berry fruit that is accompanied by a pleasant minerality and freshness, almost citrusy, which evolves into gently roasted notes of peanuts tending to peanut butter.
The taste confirms the ambitious expectations raised during harvest and vinification: the 2006 vintage is a Trentodoc of great stature, which is characterized by an opulence that does not detract from the typical elegance of this variety. Consistent with the nose, on the palate the Ferrari Perlé Nero 2006 is characterized by a pleasant richness pervaded by a citrus acidity perfectly balanced with almond notes. In closing the minerality comes out with a remarkable persistence of sapidity.
A Trentodoc that leaves its mark and that one can enjoy immediately, but that will also be a pleasure to those who decide to leave it a few years in the cellar!

And even at the MoMA in New York there is toasting with Ferrari
Thursday, December 20, 2012
First with Zegna, then with Prada and now at MoMA. There are many glamorous events in New York where the starring role of the toast is Ferrari sparkling wine. So it was, on December 13, at MoMA, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, for the presentation of the world premiere of Medea of Pier Paolo Pasolini to which is dedicated, until January 5, a major retrospective. There was, among others, the minister of culture Lorenzo Ornaghi who, with the exhibition dedicated to Pasolini, started off the Year of Italian culture in the United States which will continue throughout 2013. The toast was a magical moment for the Trentodoc Ferrari once again chosen in New York as a symbol of the Italian art of living.
