Ferrari Trento promotes a culture of drinking responsibly which is part of the Italian Art of Living. It is a culture linked to the ritual nature of food and the celebration of convivial occasions, in which consumption is moderate and informed.

Operating in an excellent manner depends on authentic values, lovingly cultivated and passed down from one generation to the next.

It is a constant quest for quality and attention to detail during the entire production process that have made Ferrari Italy’s leading producer of Metodo Classico sparkling wines. For this reason, every bottle provides a unique experience.


Spumante, a delightful Italian wine, holds a rich tradition and a distinct charm within the world of sparkling wines. Originating from the northern Italian region of Trentino, it exemplifies the quintessential characteristics of a well-crafted bubbly. Spumante owes much of its unique character to the picturesque mountainside vineyards in Trentino, which are nestled in the foothills of the Italian Alps. The combination of high altitudes and a unique climate creates the perfect conditions for producing high-quality sparkling wines. The significant temperature fluctuations between warm days and cool nights play a pivotal role in enhancing the quality of the grapes, ultimately imparting diverse flavors and fragrances to the final product.

The production of Spumante begins with the careful selection of grapes. Typically, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes are chosen for their exceptional qualities. These grapes are handpicked during late summer when they are perfectly ripe. After harvesting, they are gently pressed, and the juice undergoes the initial fermentation, preserving the essence of the original grape aromas.

Spumante is versatile and well-suited for a wide array of occasions. Whether you're celebrating a special moment, enjoying a leisurely brunch, or simply toasting with friends, Spumante's sparkling effervescence and diverse sweetness levels make it a delightful choice. It pairs wonderfully with a range of foods, from seafood and appetizers to desserts, and its lively bubbles enhance the overall dining experience.
