Giulio Ferrari Collezione 2001

This product is currently out of stock and unavailable.


For fans of sparkling Chardonnay it is an edition that goes beyond the cult already represented by the Riserva del Fondatore and the unique, rare and particularly coveted event, an icon and a reference wine for the whole territory able to stand up to comparison with the most famous Champagne.

Its story begins with Mauro Lunelli (one of the three sons of Bruno that the company from Giulio Ferrari), who of his own free will keep for about eight years some special thousandths, which, once shared with the two brothers Franco and Gino, they created, in 1980, the Riserva del Fondatore: a special label to be produced only in the best vintages, dedicated to Giulio Ferrari. The story continues enriching itself with successes and awards, which raise this label to the Olympus of world bubbles and which, only in very few years, is pushed to levels of refinement never reached by Italian sparkling wine.

In fact, there are only three vintages of the Giulio Ferrari Collezione: after 1995 and 1997, here is the 2001, considered after a long period of reflection and internal evaluation by the Ferrari Cellars to be a suitable vintage to become history.

A regular vintage with good alternation between individual, sun exposure and temperature variations, the harvest at Maso Pianizza took place gradually to select the best batches of Chardonnay from which to undertake the long journey towards absolute glory.

The 18 years of average permanence on the lees, in fact, helps this Chardonnay in purity to develop an elegance and a unique structure, from the visual examination, with its very fine and persistent perlage, to the taste-olfactory one.

Defining the latter broad can be an understatement: peach and pineapple stand out in the complexity of the bouquet alternating with marked salty and spicy references, reminiscent of cardamom and ginger, to continue on the tertiary notes of caramel and sweet flours. In the mouth there is a lively and dynamic energy, a never tame freshness that envelops an elegant minerality, then gives way to an infinite persistence.

Giulio Ferrari Collezione 2001 was produced in 2001 in boxed bottles: very rare and unique, an honor to have it in your collection and access the exclusive club of the same name.
