This fascinating charmat process wine with straw-colored hints and greenish reflections presents a delicate and persistent bubble that brings to the nose the typical hints of the Glera vine. The intense fruity notes of Williams pears and Golden apples, intense and immediately recognizable, leave a refreshing aroma of pomelo trees and hawthorn flowers among which emerges a pleasant milky note.
The effervescence gives structure to the sip whose freshness is accompanied by a fruity and pleasantly soft final.
We tasted it with vegetarian friends so we chose a great pairing: a vegetable quiche.
Founded in 1987 by an old family of winemakers, Paolo and Giorgio Polegato’s Astoria prides itself on the quality of its products. Astoria products are served in the most exclusive restaurants, wineries, and bars. Astoria sells wines produced at its own “Val De Brun Estate” in Refrontolo, in the heart of the DOCG zone Conegliano Valdobbiadene. Forty acres, located in one of the most beautiful wine-growing areas in Italy, renowned for its climate, highlight the harmonious succession of hills and vineyards.
The Company links its name to the product par excellence of the winemaking tradition in Veneto: the Prosecco; this wine, the Millesimato, was awarded several prizes over the years, including the prestigious Grand Gold Medal at the International Wine Competition at Vinitaly in Verona. Prosecco Millesimato Docg and Refrontolo Passito Docg are the house jewels. Astoria is not just Prosecco though, as it also produces barrique wines such as Colli di Conegliano Docg, Crevada and Croder, relying on the competence and skills of its highly professional staff.
