For something a bit more complex and food-friendly, this blanc de blancs (100% Chardonnay) is from hillside vineyards surrounding Trentino. Here we have a wine from a winery specializing in blanc de blancs-style sparklers. In fact, the top-of-the-line, Giulio Ferrari, from this producer is a mono cru Chardonnay vineyard, Maso Pianizza. The Perlé shows ripe yellow fruits (ie. quince) with good structure and a clean finish. I was having it as an aperitif but kept preferring it with the scrumptious hors d’oeuvre of Parmigiano nests filled with Fontina cheese. Definitely have it with cheese or a light entrée.
