Astoria Prosecco Millesimato has tiny and continuous bubbles with straw yellow and greenish reflections. Extra dry in style, with floral notes accented by pear, peach, honey and toast. On the creamy palate, the fresh fruit harmoniously linger.
Pairs well with chicken, stuffed mushrooms, very food-friendly, prosciutto, pasta with creamy sauces, spicy dishes, seafood, as a toast, shellfish or fresh fruit.
The grapes are sourced from the D.O.C. region of Valdobbiadene (Vahldoe-bee-ah-den-ay) on the hills of the Astoria estate vineyard “Costa del Sol”, at an elevation of 500 feet above sea level. Vines are located on the hillside with an east-to-west orientation, with 5,000 vines per hectare, averaging 8 years of age. The grapes are harvested by hand in small lots. Immediately after harvest, in accordance to strict D.O.C. law, a gentle pressing occurs and the “free-run” 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 second fermentation takes place allowing it to become a sparkling wine. Final aging occurs over 6 weeks in the bottle.
