James Suckling (93)- "This has a richer, peach-pink color with a copper hue to it offering ripe peaches, cooked apples, pastry crust and toffee. Tense and mineral on the palate with creamy mousse and tangy acidity that gives it crunchiness and verticality. Long finish. Drink or hold."
Wine Advocate (93)- "With lively and very active beading, the Contratto 2018 Alta Langa Metodo Classico Rosé Pas Dosé For England reveals a pinkish copper hue with steady foam. The bouquet offers citrus, pink grapefruit, unripe peach and crushed stone. As it opens in the glass, you also get faint tones of sweet breakfast pastry. These results are elegant and silky."
Wine Enthusiast (92)- "Loads of citrus, leaning toward bitter orange and ruby red grapefruit, emerge from this wine. The palate is tart and zippy, with a touch of green guava candy, bright acidity and great structure finishing with a tight and persistent perlage."
