Alta Langa DOCG Blanc de Blancs Pas Dosè 2017 - Contratto

Piedmont, and in particular Alta Langa, is a land of choice for the great French vines, the basis of sparkling wine. Like the Chardonnay that in the vineyards of Bossolasco, in the Contratto, is able to express itself with fruits of great quality, able to wait and mature for years. From 100% Chardonnay grapes comes this fragrant and refined Blanc de Blancs, the result of an accurate selection in the vineyard and of a careful processing that starts with destemming and soft crushing, without pressing the grapes, in order to obtain only the best juice. This is followed by a first fermentation in stainless steel tanks and, after a refinement of about 9 months, a second fermentation in the bottle. Maturation on the yeasts lasts for at least 36 months. Afterwards, a manual remuage and disgorgement are carried out. Brilliant straw yellow, this sparkling wine has a fine and incredibly enveloping perlage. On the nose, it is pleasantly floral and fragrant, with distinct hints of almonds, tropical fruits and brioche. In the mouth it is above all enveloping and elegant, with delicate notes of small white flowers and minerals. An excellent aperitif wine, it goes well with savoury but delicate dishes such as spaghetti allo scoglio, preferably in white.

Giuseppe Contratto founded his winery in 1867, vinifying Moscato grapes from the Monferrato area and producing one of the first Italian sparkling wines re-fermented in the bottle. Also in those years, the Contratto family began the construction of the historic winery, which was completed at the beginning of the twentieth century. From one result to the next, and from one market to the next, the Contratto winery has now passed the 120-year mark. In the meantime, the Contratto family was succeeded by the Bocchino family, already owners of the distillery of the same name, who invested in the relaunch of the company and began an important collaboration with Giorgio Rivetti, who had always been a great lover of Champagne. In 2011, the Rivetti family acquired the winery, giving new impetus to the production of quality sparkling wines and officially joining the Consorzio Alta Langa, becoming a point of reference for the entire denomination. In 2014, the historic Wine Cathedral of Contratto was officially declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This evocative place, rich in history, is still the scene of the long bottle-ageing of classic method sparkling wines.
