Astoria Fashion Victim Rosé
Astoria Fashion Victim Rose is a juicy, rosé Prosecco-style wine, tinted by the addition of Pinot Nero grapes. A fruity and fresh summer wine with hints of strawberry, lots of ripe raspberry, red berry fruit with a hint of cream, plus a gentle floral aspect. Nicely balanced, with a surprisingly elegant, dry finish.

Why we like this wine
While there is no such thing as Pink Prosecco, this is the nearest thing. It's packed with fine fruit flavours balanced by a gentle sweetness on the palate. Quite simply it's a little bit of luxury for an affordable price. Suits just about every palate too. The bottle is a special production for Astoria. In fact it's a map of the canals of Venice should you be able to lay it flat but perhaps there are easier ways to find your way around the great city!
- Juicy and very fruity
- Perfect balance on not sickly sweet
- Great presentation
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.
