Wine Details

Contratto Pas Dosé Millesimato Alta Langa DOCG

The Millesimato has the bright intensity and definition of the highest caliber sparkling wine. A Pinot Noir (~80%) and Chardonnay (~20%) blend, this wine is hand-riddled in the cellar where it ages nearly 5 years before release. In the mouth, it is creamy and rich with fine, soft beading. Abundant honey, apricot and sweet almond meld with notes of lemon mousse and honeydew, resulting in an undeniably delicious and appealing wine.

Contratto Pas Dosé Millesimato Alta Langa DOCG 2020

James Suckling (92)- "This is rich and creamy with notes of glazed lemons, candied peaches, bread crust, almonds and dried flowers. Dry with fine bubbles and vivid acidity with creamy texture that extends to a long, polished finish."


Contratto Pas Dosé Millesimato Alta Langa DOCG 2020

Wine Advocate (90)- "The Contratto 2020 Alta Langa Metodo Classico Millesimato Pas Dosé opens to a luminous golden color with a very faint hint of shiny copper. The beading is slower and softer in this wine, and it proceeds to the palate with easy tones of peach, tropical fruit and baked pear. This hot- vintage wine does not taste as fresh as some of its predecessors."


Contratto Pas Dosé Millesimato Alta Langa DOCG 2019

Wine Enthusiast (91+)- "Hidden Gem" This wine opens with aromas of ripe apples, grilled lemon peel, flinty minerality, roasted nuts and lemon curd. The wine offers a creamy texture balanced by solid acidity, reminiscent of a lemon drop finishing with finesse and an elegant perlage."
