  • TASTING NOTE: Hints of orange blossom, shortcrust pastry and dried red fruits. On the palate it shows great structure, tying together driving acid, soft florals and citrus notes and a core of minerality. 
  • ABOUT THE WINE: 42 months of lees ageing in bottle before disgorgement with zero dosage.
  • ABOUT THE PRODUCER: The Contratto winery was founded in 1867 by Giuseppe Contratto, the picturesque estate remaining part of the family’s heritage for 126 years. Italy’s first sparkling wines came from these historic cellars (in fact, the 1919 Contratto Extra Brut was the first vintage "Metodo Classico" sparkling wine ever made in the country) and the estate enjoyed many years of grandeur, representing a premier source of sparkling wine for international Royal houses and even personal supplier to the Vatican and Italian royal family. After decades of international success, the winery encountered unfortunate economic difficulties, forcing the founding family to sell to the local grappa producer Bocchino in 1993. Carlo Bocchino carried out substantial renovations to the estate’s historic cellars, buildings and tasting rooms, but ultimately decided to focus on his original family business and, in 2011, the estate was acquired by Giorgio Rivetti of La Spinetta, with the objective of reviving Contratto to its former glory. Rivetti farms Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in the high altitude vineyards of the 'Alta Langa' to produce these world class sparkling wines.
