Astoria Galie Prosecco Di Treviso Extra Dry
Astoria Galie Prosecco Di Treviso Extra Dry is delightfully aromatic, with fine floral notes on the bouquet. The clean, crisp palate has just a faint hint of richness (Astoria Galie's classification is Extra Dry, just a touch riper than Brut) to help carry the refined fruit flavours and the delicious, mouthwatering finish.

This Prosecco is top notch and so stylishly presented too. Grown on the Polegato family property of Tenuta Val de Brun, this 100% Glera (what used to be called Prosecco) comes from hand harvested grapes that firstly underwent an alcoholic fermentation by indigenous yeasts, followed by the fermentation "di spuma" where the bubbles are formed. This was done at a low temperature to ensure a smooth and consistent effervescence.
Why we like this wine
Well firstly, it's such a great example of Prosecco. Then of course the elegant bottle which if you laid it flat would be a map of the canals of Venice. Finally it has great value/quality rapport. It's one of the easiest drinking Prosecco's we have tasted and will delight any drinker. The only problem is you'll want another bottle!
- Great quality/price rapport
- Stylish and elegant with just the right level of sweetness.
- First class presentation
- Works well by itself or with canapes
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.
