Wine Advocate (93)- "The Contratto 2017 Alta Langa Metodo Classico Rosé Pas Dosé For England opens to a pale cranberry-pink color with amber highlights. The beading is fine and silky. In terms of this sparkler's aromas, you get tart citrus and lots of grapefruit with some orchard fruit, toast and crushed mineral. This wine shows a steely, tonic and firm personality, although you do also taste some of the soft, hot-vintage fruit."
Wine Advocate (94+)- "The Contratto 2016 Alta Langa Metodo Classico Rosé Pas Dosé For England shows pretty color saturation with an elegant pink hue and hints of shiny copper. This wine made exclusively with Pinot Noir offers a heavier center of gravity and more fruit weight, with spicy and tonic beading on the close. This more full-bodied style allows for plenty of orchard fruit, crushed mineral and some baked bread."
James Suckling (92)- "A salmon-pink colored rosé with aromas of dried raspberries, sour cherries, orange zest, walnuts and croissants. It’s medium-bodied with a bright, savory and flavorful palate. Silky bubbles. Some salted-citrus and herb notes. Dry and very fresh. Drink now."
