Astoria Casa Vittorino Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore D.O.C.G. Brut
This exceptional Prosecco comes from Astoria's own vineyards in Valdobbiadene where the Glera grapes grow to perfection. It is carefully selected by hand so only the finest bunches make it to the vat where it is fermented at low temperature protecting all of the fine aromas you expect from Prosecco. The fizz is formed in autoclaves (pressurised tanks) again at low temperature before bottling.
It has a wonderfully fine pearl which is persistent. The bouquet is intense, clean cut, very fruity and with the great typicity of Glera. Crisp, dry and very well integrated with fruit the foremost component.

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.
