Siro Merotto was founded in 1960 and the tradition is continued by the founder's grandchildren, who cultivate the vineyards located on the hills of Col San Martino in the province of Treviso. These wines are made exclusively with Prosecco grapes and other old wine varieties grown organically, harvested by hand, then made using traditional methods. The wines are refermented at a low temperature in order to enhance body and bubbles. The whole company uses the energy produced by photovoltaic systems what allow it to be energy independent and environmentally friendly, so important in today's culture.
Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco Tranquillo: golden yellow, visible tiny bubbles; pear, melon, and subtle citrus aromas with the same repeated on the palate; pleasant mild effervescence; cork closure.
In un Sol Vino Bianco Frizzante: foamy into glass; deep golden yellow with visible tiny bubbles; yeast, melon and citrus aromas; pear, green melon, and citrus flavors; pleasant effervescence; balanced with nice acid; cork closure. Many, many small bubbles, fun wine to drink - paired with a Greek salad and chili cheese dogs and stood up pretty well, surprisingly.
Prosecco Spumante Brut: light yellow with many, many, many tiny visible bubbles; red berries, citrus, and floral aromas; yeast, pear and lemon custard flavors; cork closure. Why did this go well with a chorizo burrito? I don't know, it just did.
Food friendly and just fun to drink - these are inexpensive wines that would be a hit at any party, or for everyday drinking.
