Wine Details

Contratto Blanc de Blancs Pas Dosé Alta Langa DOCG

A classic Piedmont sparkler crafted from 100% Chardonnay grown on hillside vineyards located 650 meters (2,133 feet) above sea level. The wine opens up beautifully in the glass to reveal exceptional power, depth and intensity with characteristic varietal notes of citrus, orchard fruit and white peach. Floral notes and slate are enhanced by a crystalline purity and texture, enchanting in the mouth with an enveloping creaminess and fine and persistent bubbles. An ideal accompaniment to seafood.

Recent press reviews


Contratto Blanc de Blancs Pas Dosé Alta Langa DOCG 2019

Falstaff Magazine (93)- "Intense light gold with orange reflections. Fragrant nose, of bread crust, freshly squeezed oranges, white flowers, with fine hints of candied ginger, delicate berry scent in the aftertaste, after a while of sulfur. Juicy on the palate, clear, with a great fruit core, on fresh pineapple, shows a nice progression, bone dry, clean, pure, again juicy in the finish."

Wine Advocate (92)- "This vibrant sparkling wine has a very attractive personality and lots of spicy beading. The Contratto 2019 Alta Langa Metodo Classico Blanc de Blancs Pas Dosé opens to pear, unripe peach and preserved lemon. It maintains a bright delivery of flavors with plenty of background freshness."


Contratto Blanc de Blancs Pas Dosé Alta Langa DOCG 2018

James Suckling (93)- "This has a deeper color with intensity and richness to the fruit, offering notes of cooked apples and lemons, pine nuts, sourdough and hints of balsamic. Medium- to full-bodied and bone-dry with fine bubbles and electrifying acidity. Concentrated. Extends to a long, yeasty finish. Drink now."
