Giulio Ferrari Riserva del Fondatore 2008

This product is currently out of stock and unavailable.


For fans of sparkling Chardonnay, this is certainly a cult classic, and for many others an icon and a wine that is representative of the whole territory. The fact that this pure Chardonnay spends an average 10 years on the lees helps it develop its unique elegance and structure – from the visual, with its exceptionally fine and persistent perlage – to the gustatory-olfactory dimension, with its legendary minerality and freshness.

The story begins with Mauro Lunelli (one of Bruno’s three sons who took over the company from Giulio Ferrari), who conserved special vintages for about eight years. Once he shared these with his brothers Franco and Gino, in 1980, they created the Riserva del Fondatore: a speciality to be produced only during the best vintages, dedicated to Giulio Ferrari. The story continues to unfold with successes and awards, which raise this label to the Olympus of the world of bubbly, on a par with the best champagnes in the world, according to international critics.

The year 2008 marked its debut on the Day of the Republic, June 2, to underline its Italian character and the desire to encourage a spirit of national cohesion.

Acacia and hawthorn stand out in the complexity of the bouquet of this vintage, which then moves towards more fruity, citrus notes, to continue with the tertiary notes of hazelnuts, almonds and white chocolate. The taste immediately surprises with its harmony: it is sumptuous, complex and very fresh, and brings us back to the olfactory scents, with incredibly persistence. A vintage with a great personality that is ready to amaze us now and to continue to evolve for at least another 10 years.
