Sweet and lively sensations
Over two years of ageing in bottle for this Demi-Sec that is semi-sweet, with a distinctive roundedness: a Trentodoc that makes a perfect end to your meal.
Colour and perlage Deep straw yellow, with a persistent perlage.
Nose A broad bouquet of citrus fruits, ripe Golden Delicious apples, wisteria and wild flowers, accompanied by fragrances of yeast, deriving from over two years’ ageing in bottle.
Taste Sweetish and harmonious, with a pleasant flavour of ripe fruit and hints of pastry perfectly matched by a pleasing roundedness.
The velvety embrace
to end on a sweet note.
This cake originated in Mantua, and became famous in the 17th century at the court of the Gonzagas. The name refers to its characteristic crumbliness: in fact, one breaks the sbrisolona with one’s hands, crumbling it.
The fresh sweetness of Ferrari Demi-Sec balances the rich flavour of ingredients such as almonds, butter and cornflour.
This delicious cake, enriched with raisins and candied fruit, has been the symbol of the Milanese pastry-making tradition for over five hundred years. It later spread throughout Italy, where it is associated with the Christmas season.
The balanced sweetness of Ferrari’s Demi-Sec goes perfectly with this soft cake.
