Monrose Rosé 2014
Very elegant bright subtle on the nose, just a hint of raspberries but more in the floral area. Very fresh on the palate, light but expressive, more like a white wine really.
Much quieter now but quite subtle too, clean and good red fruits. Tight but approachable, excellent quaffer, broadens out on the back a bit.
Santa Rita Rosso di Valtellina 2012
A bit brighter on the nose, more vibrant, more concentration and focus on the palate.
Very bright floral crunchy red fruits, wonderfully elegant, fine and focused, tight but fresh tannins.
A little earthier on the nose, finer tannins, but less fruit character, savoury texture.
Very lifted dustier notes, much tighter tannins and acid structure, tightly wound.
Sommarovina 2012 (single vineyard)
Bolder fuller and more intense, a slightly bigger wine but still quite elegant.
San Lorenzo 2011
Earthier much more savoury nose, dense and brooding. Swift and bright.
Quite a sweet fruit profile but intense and bold, a bit of warmth and concentration in this one.
Corte di Cama 2011
More lifted aromatics, actually a super fresh palate but initial warmth, finishes soft and supple.
Warmer broader and more intense on the palate, less freshness of fruit, more earthy power and sinew.
Tannins still very prominent and not showing signs of slowing down, development on the nose but still very tight on the palate.
