Perlè Nero by Ferrari is an extra brut sparkling wine that comes from a careful selection of Pinot Noir grapes, from the best vineyards located in the highest mountainous areas.
In the glass, Ferrari's Perlè Nero has a bright and luminous golden color with a delicate and persistent perlage. The nose is spectacularly complex, the hints vary from fruity to mineral and from toasted notes to salted butter. The sip is full and soft with an enveloping and persistent finish. This Trento DOC is ideal to accompany fish-based aperitifs.
After the manual harvest that takes place at the end of September, the production of Ferrari's Perlè Nero takes place in two phases: during the first, the base wine is made, through a white vinification of the grapes. The second phase is instead that of refermentation in the bottle at the end of which the sugar is transformed into alcohol and carbon dioxide. Finally, the sparkling wine rests on the lees in the bottle for at least 6 years.
