Giuseppe Contratto founded his winery in 1867, when he began vinifying moscato from Monferrato, producing one of the first Italian sparkling wines refermented in the bottle.
Destemming and soft pressing, without pressing the grapes, in a way to obtain only the best and most balanced juice from the grapes. First fermentation is in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks followed by almost 9 months of aging. Second fermentation in bottle followed by almost 48 months aging on lees before disgorging with no added sugar (dosage).
This sparkling has a bright copper yellow colour with aromas of pastries, orange blossoms and hints of dried fruit. The palate is fresh, creamy and savoury with flavours of stone fruits.
