Produced in the tiny zone of Asolo and Montello, this wine is something of a rarity and certainly a jewel in the crown of Prosecco.

Why we like this wine
Well it's only in the Asolo zone where Prosecco can be fermented extra brut so this is something of a rarity. We have numerous clients who prefer their wines dry, dry, dry so this, for Prosecco, is just the ticket. Sometimes it's good to carry on with the aperitif through the first courses and with fish too and this will certainly do that. Fresh as a daisy too so it's really refreshing. Basically it ticks all the boxes for dry wine lovers.

About the grower
Brothers Paolo and Giorgio Polegato, members of the same winemaking family behind Antonini Ceresa Vini, set up Astoria Vini in 1987. Astoria wines are mainly produced from grapes grown on its own 40 acre Tenuta Val De Brun estate in Refrontolo, right in the heart of the DOCG Conegliano-Valdobbiadene zone. As you would expect from such a location the excellence of Astoria Vini Prosecco is a given. What you might not expect is the range and the quality of the still wines produced by Astoria Vini, from light, fresh, unoaked whites to substantial, ageworthy, barrique-aged reds and dried grape, Passito dessert wines - all of which are very stylishly packaged.
Awards for the Astoria Vini range of wines are numerous and it is seldom a year that goes by at Vinitaly, Italy's major wine fair, that the Polegato brothers are not rewarded in some form. In addition to the high quality of their wines they consistently offer exceptionally stylish packaging, helping the Astoria Vini to wines stand out in any situation. Great value, great looking and great quality.
