Contratto was founded in 1867 in Canelli, the heart of a prestigious wine producing area. The company always had a reputation as one of Italy's premier Brut sparkling wine producers. According to Antonio Galloni, "One of Italy's most historic houses, Contratto was exporting sparkling wines to England and other countries back in the 1920s. After a long period of near obscurity, Contratto has been revitalized by new ownership headed by Giorgio Rivetti of La Spinetta. Rivetti has a huge passion for Champagne," making it a natural fit.
100% Pinot Noir
TA: 6.5 g/lt
For England Rose is a nicely dry, delicious wine with red fruits and a color that just hints at rose. A lovely acidity and a great complexity complete the serious and highly enjoyable sparkling wine, that apart from making for a great aperitif, also may accompany many meals.
Ratings & Reviews
94 Points - James Suckling (2009 Vintage):
"I love the peaches and cream with hints of vanilla bean. Flowers and strawberries, too. Full-bodied, very bright and dry. A spumante for serious champagne lovers. Pure pinot noir. Left one hour on the skins for first fermentation." (March 13, 2015)
