The wine For England was named as such in 1930, when Contratto began producing a low-dosage wine for the English market. At that time, all Champagne and sparkling wines were extremely sweet and the Royal Court of England was the first in Europe to develop a drier palate for wine. Today For England is a zero dosage (no added liquor d'expedition) and For England Rosé (100% Pinot Noir) has very little residual sugar. Bacco d'Oro is again a blend of 80% Pinot Noir and 20% Chardonnay. It has always been a less dry sparkling wine and remains so, however with 10gr/lt of sugar it is still considered a Brut.
Very thin perlage.
Intense golden dress.
Complex and deep nose, crossed by aromas of cedar, toasted salted almonds, lemon cream, candied ginger, then a closing mineral vein.
Vertical tasting, almost sharp, sharpened by flavor and freshness, continues vigorous and with a long persistence of salt and citrus.
