Astoria Yu Sushi Extra Brut Sparkling Wine
An amazing low sugar, low calorie sparkling wine. All the fun without the sin!
The Astoria Yu Sushi sparkler was originally intended, as the name suggests, to accompany Sushi but it’s great to drink as an aperitif or with any form of fish dish. It gives a stream of fine, continuous bubbles and has a light straw yellow colour. It is exceptionally elegant with clean fruity notes in the bouquet and distinctive fruit flavours on the palate with a fresh, dryish finish.

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.
