Merotto, Cuvée del Fondatore, Rive di Col San Martino, Valdobbiadene Brut 2012
17/20pts (90/100pts)
Very classic, delicate Prosecco notes of wisteria and lovely creamy texture on the palate with perfectly judged perlage. Fresh in the middle, hints of lemon rind, pear skins and honey on the finish. Balance and refinement.
