Wine Advocate (94)- "The historic Contratto winery was born in 1867, and in 1919, it produced Italy's first Metodo Classico Millesimato wine. This wine is a cousin of that pioneering effort, and its name pays homage to the 19th century. The 2012 Metodo Classico Pas Dos Cuv e Novecento (with a pretty portrait of a lady on the front) reveals elegant fullness and medium body. Stone fruit and white pear segue to delicate pastry cream, spice and crushed stone. This wine focuses on grace and softness."
James Suckling (93)- "Honeysuckle, apricots, spiced pears, hazelnuts, walnuts and brioche on the nose. It’s medium-to full-bodied with bright acidity and a creamy mousse. Round, layered and intense with a toasty and vinous palate. Dry. Pinot noir and chardonnay. Delicious now."
James Suckling (93)- "Lifted aromas of toast and bread dough with dried lemons. Full-bodied, very dry and tangy with a pie-crust and cooked-apple finish. Dried pears, too. Decadent. Drink now."
