Deep ruby red in colour with an aromatic nose, strongly reminiscent of fresh strawberries. The palate is richly soft, generously fruity and delightfully refreshing, offering ripe, concentrated red berry fruits such as cranberries, raspberries and strawberries, a fine, persistent mousse and a soft finish. Low acidity and very little tannin combine to create a deliciously fruit driven, thirst quenching wine.
Delicate rose with an intense fruit bouquet of strawberries and raspberries with a lively, round palate.
Contero is owned by the Marenco family, who are Moscato and Brachetto specialists in Strevi. This 11 hectare estate remains one of the best producers of invigoratingly delicious Moscato d'Asti and Brachetto d'Acqui.
The Contero vineyards are situated in a perfect amphitheatre in the commune of Strevi, the heart of one of the best zones for Brachetto in Piemonte. The vines are superbly tended and produce fruit of stunning quality. They are located on steep hills with tufaceous-marl soils which contain layers of fertile clay. The vines are Guyot trained and plated at a density of 4,800 vines per hectare. Grapes are hand-harvested into wooden boxes and the average yield is five tonnes per hectare.
The grapes were pressed gently and the must fermented on the skins at low temperatures in stainless steel tanks. The wine was drawn from the vat at an alcohol content of 5.5% and bottled under pressure for a light sparkle.
Light cherry red in colour. The rich, persistent mousse accompanies bright aromas of roses and violets. The slightly sweet, aromatic palate has a typical bittersweet note on the finish.
Pale silver-pink. Aromas of raspberries cherries and a few secondary whiffs of minerality. A lively mousse but fine in the mouth with subtle red berry flavours enlivened by bright acids. Brisk on the palate showing hints of oyster shell and fresh lavender.
A blend of 45% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Noir & 15% Pinot Meunier. This Champagne has a delicate and fresh nose, with good complexity and notes of citrus and with fruit. It is fresh and supple upon entry with rounded and expressive flavours from which the fruit progressively emerges. Good balance and length.
Lightly frothing with a lovely perfume of freshly crushed grapes and sherbet. On the palate it is lightly sparkling and off-dry, with a perfect balance of soft, sweet, grapey fruit with a hint of Turkish delight and lively, fresh acidity.
Beautiful harmony between lengthy Chardonnay and fragrant Pinot Noir. The result is a sparkling wine with a fine mousse giving freshness and finesse elegant ripe fruit and light yeast aromas and a rich creamy complexity on the palate.
