Description: A crisp, beautifully balanced, quality Italian Sparkler made in the classic method. At the start of the twentieth century Giulio Ferrari was the pioneer of sparkling wines in this region of north east Italy taking his inspiration directly from the wines of Champagne. In the intervening period his wines have gained an enviable reputation and are often considered among the best Italy has to offer. Maximum Brut is made from 100% Chardonnay grown on vineyards rangoing from 300 to 700m above sea level in the Trentino mountains which help give the finished wine a great concentration and lovely mineral notes. Matured at least 30 months on its lees before release it has a freshness and fruity fragrance up front underpinned with a biscuity depth. On the palate the fine silky bubbles give it a softness of touch which suits the delicate flavours perfectly. Elegant and rounded this is equally good as an aperitif or paired up with seafood recipes.
