Now in its third year as the official toast of Formula 1 and following on from releasing two new bottles last year for the circuits in Miami, which was new to the championship last year, and Mexico City, this year sees the launch of three further dedicated bottles for the circuits of Imola, Zandvoort and Las Vegas.
2023 is the 70th anniversary of the iconic Imola circuit which is located in Emilia Romagna. It was inaugurated in 1953 and the history of the circuit is closely linked to the surrounding area starting with the name ‘Autodromo Enzo and Dino Ferrari’.
Zandvoort in North Holland is home to the Dutch Grand Prix and Max Verstappen’s home circuit. Grand Prix were held at the circuit between 1950 and 1985 and then again from 2021. The drivers love the circuit for its banks and fast corners.
New to the 2023 race calendar, the Las Vegas Grand Prix is scheduled to take place on 18th November. Formula 1 did in fact race in Las Vegas in the early 1980s on a temporary track next to Caesars Palace. However, the new street circuit encompasses the very best the City of Lights has to offer, including the famous Las Vegas Strip.
The three dedicated Ferrari Trento bottles showcasing the Imola, Zandvoort and Las Vegas circuits are consistent with the previous six bottles in the collection, with the label reproducing the stylised design of the circuit. The name of the circuit is on the top and bottom edges in an eye-catching play on lettering which is also reproduced on the bright gift box.
As with the previous bottles, they are Blanc de Blancs cuvées, matured on their lees for at least 24 months, made from a strict selection of 100 percent Chardonnay grapes grown sustainably and handpicked on the slopes of the mountains of Trentino.
These Trentodoc wines display a highly intense nose with notes of ripe fruit, in which you also find hints of crusty bread and hazelnuts. It offers an inviting and satisfying palate which can be attributed to the wine’s freshness and the finesse of its perlage, with a finish that combines both mineral sensations and citrusy nuances.
Matteo Lunelli, CEO and President of Ferrari Trento, commented:
“Ferrari Trento has been the Official Toast of Formula 1 for two years now, and following these successful years, we very much look forward to the third season. 2023 is set to be a big one, and we are glad to celebrate it presenting the Imola, Zandvoort and Las Vegas F1 dedicated editions of our Trentodoc sparkling wine”.
Being Italy’s leading brand for luxury sparkling wines, Ferrari Trento is a symbol of the Italian Art of Living and these three new editions of Ferrari Trento inspired by Formula 1 will be something to add to any wine collection. The three new labels are available in limited quantities from wine stores and online at www.ferraritrento.com.
