TASTING NOTES

Cantina Contratto was the first Italian winery to make a vintage version of a Classic Method in the area of Asti, in Canelli in Piedmont, thanks to the intuition of Giorgio Rivetti. The underground cellars have been dug into the limestone tuff up to a depth of 32 meters, with a constant and natural temperature, ensuring the perfect environment for bottle fermentation and slow maturation of wines obtained following the Classic Method. Blanc de Blancs, made from 100% Chardonnay grapes harvested by hand, reveals an exceptional power and intensity. Alta Langa Brut Blanc de Blancs performs two fermentations that take place with native yeasts: after the first fermentation the wine ages until May before the tirage and the second fermentation takes place in the bottle for at least 4 years. The glass has a straw yellow color with golden reflections, fine and persistent perlage. A disruptive scent of white fruit and citrus blends with floral notes and flint. The fascinating combination of texture and purity creates an irresistible marriage. White flowers, lemon peel and slate stand out, but Blanc de Blancs stands out above all for its structure and precision. Fresh and lively, this sparkling wine is elegant and exuberant, excellent with fish and light shellfish dishes, excellent to uncork with friends for an aperitif with friends. To fully appreciate its style, this wine should be served at a serving temperature of 10/12 ºC. Read more Read less
THE WINERY

Contratto

With deep care for the terroir and local traditions, a long history and constant production, the Contratto winery is always attentive to new technologies and consequently guarantees exceptional Piedmontese wines. The cultivation of the grapes is followed from the earliest stages, and the entire process still follows many traditional methods. Only a few careful technological modifications have been made over time. One of the company's strengths is certainly its end product: sparkling wines using the classic method, refined and bold at the same time, able to tell you the story of Piedmont in a glass. Even now, the sparkling wines are produced strictly by following the classic method. From the work in the vineyard to selecting the best grapes, to the meticulous work in the cellar: every step is carried out with care and attention. Even the labels maintain their traditional elegance: they remain unchanged since the 1920s and are another distinguishing feature of the company's production. Name and address of producer/distributor: Contratto - Via Giovanni Battista Giuliani, 54, 14053 Canelli AT. Products from this winery should be stored in a cool, dry place away from heat sources.
