Paradoxically, Italy’s most famous metodo classico sparkling wine was started with the desire to compete with the best French Champagnes. Giulio Ferrari, a Trentino native, started his venerable sparkling wine house in 1902, after studying winemaking in France. Convinced that his native region’s terroir was ideal for growing Chardonnay, he produced three of his now best-known cuvées – Ferrari Brut, Perlé and Giulio Ferrari – as blanc de blancs. This innovative approach quickly paid off. Ferrari wines consistently receive some of Italy’s top accolades, including being awarded Tre Bicchieri 22 years in a row.


With its mountain viticulture (the Dolomites), Trentino is an area well-suited to the production of sparkling wines of great elegance and complexity. Large diurnal temperature range and high altitudes ensures high acidity and freshness in the grapes. With 300 acres of vineyards, Ferrari represents the largest estate in the Trentino region.

Winemaking & Aging

Ferrari Rosé is made using the traditional metodo classico. After a hand-harvest in September, the wine undergoes a gentle pressing and macerates with the skins for a brief time to extract just the right amount of color.

Tasting Notes

Salmon pink in color. Distinct and very refined on the nose, with the fresh fragrance of hawthorne flowers, red currants, and wild strawberries. Dry, clean, and elegant palate, with a delicate finish of sweet almonds. A sparkling wine of pronounced finesse. Perfect served as an aperitif or with lighter dishes, especially seafood.


Enticing aromas of berries and flowers are complemented by a subtle yeasty note from 20 months of aging on the lees. The palate is a captivating balance of fruity flavors, a hint of nuttiness and a lively acidity. The creamy bubbles create a luxurious texture that’s simply irresistible. Taub Family Selections. —J.P.

Bacchus Canada - July 2018


A cornucopia of red-berry aromas pours from the glass of this effusive and delightful rosé and the balance of fruit, crisp acidity and a touch of creaminess from yeast contact makes this an easy sparkling wine to enjoy. So much fruit at the finish, it’s hard to resist! Drink now.

James Suckling - July 2021


Airy and bright, this sparkling blend of Pinot Nero and Chardonnay offers delicate scents recalling brioche and white stone fruit with a whiff of yellow spring flower. The tangy palate features pomegranate, apple and orange zest notes before closing on a note of white almond. K.O.

Wine Enthusiast - April 2022


Yummy aromas of dried strawberries and citrus fruit. Wet earth, too. Full-bodied, layered and intense with bright acidity and so much reserved fruit. Lovely finish. Disgorged in 2018. Drink now. - JS

James Suckling - November 2018


Aromas of both fresh and spicy dried strawberries here, leading to a palate that has a superb sense of freshness, as well as the silkiness of clear-cut, bright berries. Drink now. – J.S.

James Suckling - November 2019


A smoky and impactful mix of wild strawberries, crushed almond and nuances of gingery spice waft up from the NV Brut Rosé. It’s round in feel with stimulating acidity, a pretty inner sweetness and depths of contrasting minerality. This leaves the palate completely refreshed and begging for another sip as hints of sour melon fade. Nicely done. This is a blend of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay, created using Metodo Classico. – E.G.

Vinous - May 2022


Well-cut and harmonious, with flavors of white peach, blood orange sorbet, grilled Macadamia nut and oyster shell riding the satinlike mousse. A streak of salinity shows on the long, creamy finish. Pinot Nero and Chardonnay. Drink now through 2029. 20,834 cases made, 10,753 cases imported. From Italy.—A.N.

Wine Spectator - March 2024

Best of Year 2018

Aromas of field flower, toast, bread crust and a whiff of wild berry mingle together in the glass. Reflecting the nose, the bright palate evokes juicy sour cherry, toasted nut, and tangerine zest framed in crisp acidity and a silky mousse. -K.O.

Wine Enthusiast - December 2018


A delicate rosé, with the lively bead carrying flavors of wild strawberry, smoked almond, singed orange peel and biscotti. Well-balanced and fresh. Drink now. –AN

Wine Spectator - April 2016


Aromas of bread crust, rose and red berry lift out of the glass. Reflecting the nose, the racy palate offers pomegranate, sour cherry, blood orange and a hint of hazelnut alongside a lively perlage. —K.O.

Wine Enthusiast - April 2021


This is another classic sparkling wine happily enjoyed in households and at restaurants (before COVID-19) across Italy. The Lunelli family has created an accessible and cheerful wine for the best of times (that we can't wait to get back to). The Ferrari NV Trento Metodo Classico Rosé Brut shows a bright raspberry pink color with faint copper highlights. Wild cherry, peach and cassis characterize the bouquet and cede to light touches of toasted almond and baked bread. To the palate, this sparkler shows a lean, steely approach that is terrific for any festive occasion. – M.L.

Wine Advocate - February 2021


The NV Trento Metodo Classico Rosé Brut opens to a pale pink color and a steady stream of silky effervescence. This is a delicate and subdued sparkling wine that would enhance any appetizer or finger food thanks to its elegant but non-intrusive personality. The bouquet offers pretty tones of cranberry, wild berry and bitter almond. The finish is tight and crisp. - ML
