In a large saucepan over medium heat, combine trimmed strawberries, sugar and water. Bring just to a boil, stirring until the sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature.
Once the strawberry mixture is cooled, press the mixture, a little at a time, through a mesh sieve placed over a bowl, pressing down on the strawberries to extract as much syrup as possible (you should have about 3 cups of syrup). Discard the solids.
In a 2-quart pitcher, stir together the syrup and wine. Cover and chill up to 24 hours.
Just before serving, stir in the sparkling water. Garnish with sliced strawberries as desired.
You can prep the strawberry syrup up to 3 days in advance.
Store the prepared sangria in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
