2016 Contratto Millesimato Pas Dosè
Notes of acacia honey, lemon peel, almond and honeysuckle. Beautifully creamy, tiny and peristent perlage. Elegant and refreshing.
"A blend of 80% Pinot Nero and 20% Chardonnay, the 2012 Metodo Classico Millesimato Pas Dosé ages on the yeasts for five years. Riddling is done by hand. This is a mid-weight sparkler that borders closely on being full-bodied. The mouthfeel is beautifully creamy and rich with abundant apricot, honey and sweet almond. I tasted this wine after a 30-wine flight of Barolos and Barbarescos and I cannot exaggerate how delicious and appealing this wine ultimately proved to be.”
