Intense, rich, creamy.
With zero dosage, this muscular fizz (made from Pinot Noir) offers aromas of creamy pears. lemon meringue and roasted hazelnuts with and a girdle of oxidative and umami notes. The palate is equally potent; marzipan, lemon curd, forest fruits and wild honey. It has a rich and creamy palate, a textural wash and a tangy, pithy finish. Lengthy and rich with rare concentration--a true treat from this historic house.
Founded in 1867 by Giuseppe Contratto, Contratto1867 is known as the first sparkling wine house in Italy. It was acquired by the Rivetti family of La Spinetta, in 2011.
