Wine Advocate (93)- "The Contratto 2017 Alta Langa Metodo Classico Blanc de Blancs Pas Dosé is a generous, medium-bodied sparkler with lots of apricot, pear, stone fruit and pastry cream. The wine shows lovely dimension and richness with fine and persistent beading."
James Suckling (93)- "This has a straw color with a yeasty, toasty and mineral nose of toasted sourdough, dried jasmine, dried pineapple, apple, lemon and slate. Some licorice, too. It’s medium-bodied with a creamy, caressing mousse and lively acidity. Excellent balance and length. Delicious now."
Wine Advocate (93)- "The Contratto 2016 Alta Langa Metodo Classico Blanc de Blancs Pas Dosé shows a pale pink presentation (it's a rosé, really) with a fragile and delicate bouquet. The wine releases aromas of citrus and orchard fruits, with some lightly toasted almond or breakfast brioche. To the palate, the wine is silky and fine with soft beading."
