A beautiful extra dry sparkling wine.
Astoria Prosecco has very fine and persistent bubbles with straw yellow and greenish reflections. The floral aromas, with generous amounts of pear and Golden Delicious apple accents, linger on the harmonious and creamy palate.
The fruit is sourced from the Astoria Estate vineyard in the rolling hills of Veneto just north of Venice. The vineyards are oriented north-south and west-east with 4,500 vines per hectare, with an average vine age of 12-years-old. The grapes are harvested by hand in small lots. A soft pressing occurs and the juice is placed in stainless steel tanks for a brief cold maceration. Before the primary fermentation process is concluded, the wine is run into a pressurized tank where a secondary fermentation takes place allowing it to become a sparkling wine. After bottling the wine is bottle aged for over 6 weeks before being released.
This Prosecco is fantastic! We find it particularly nice to enjoy this bubble in the sun drinking very cold, colder than normal bubbles. Drink this spumante at a temperature of 4 degrees. Fresh and elegant mousse. This year in Italy, it won the Gran Medaglia d’Oro, as best sparkling wine of Italy (2010).
