Trento Sparkling Wine
The production of Trento DOC sparkling wine, a true excellence of the Italian Classic Method, is a prestigious and internationally important phenomenon, which has been growing rapidly in recent years. Inaugurated in 1902 by the brilliant mind of Giulio Ferrari, who was the first to recognise a similarity between the Champagne region and Trentino, the region's production boasts a glorious history and levels of absolute excellence to the point that it was awarded DOC status in 1993. The grapes used are Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Blanc and, to a lesser extent, also Pinot Meunier, grown in the Dolomites at altitudes of up to 800 metres. This is a mountainous territory that gives a strong identity to the bubbles, which are characterised by great freshness, elegance and minerality, and which has consequently become the protagonist of important international successes.
