93 Points, Chairmans Trophy, Excellent, Highly Recommended - Ultimate Wine Challenge 2014
"Thick snowy cap of froth rests atop a straw yellow color. Vividly fruity, featuring tropical fruits such as pineapple, banana, guava plus a floral scent that bolsters the fruitiness. Round, supple, mouth-filling flavors of fruits are supported by the silky viscosity. Hint of spice in finish."

Vineyard & Winemaking Notes

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.
