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 a pleasant fragrance of yeast, deriving from over two years’ ageing in bottle.
Taste Sweetish and harmonious, with an attractive 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.
