Mamete Prevostini – Vinitaly 2015

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.

Botonero 2013
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.

Sassella 2012
Very bright floral crunchy red fruits, wonderfully elegant, fine and focused, tight but fresh tannins.

Grumello 2012
A little earthier on the nose, finer tannins, but less fruit character, savoury texture.

Inferno 2012
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.

Riserva 2010
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.

Albareda 2011
Warmer broader and more intense on the palate, less freshness of fruit, more earthy power and sinew.

Albareda 2002
Tannins still very prominent and not showing signs of slowing down, development on the nose but still very tight on the palate.

Mamete Prevostini – 19/06/2014

Monrose Rosato 2013
Quite sharp on the nose, very intense focus. Quite powerful tannin structure, a hint of fruit sweetness at the back, nice sharp acids, definitely a food rosé, a little bit of herb note.

Botonero 2013
A little brighter and fresher than the 2010. Soft sweet supple fruit, not as savoury spicy and dense as the 2010, but still nice acids and some herb notes.

Sassella 2010
A little more intense and darker in fruit, very lovely and bright on the glass, quite floral too. Very tight and focused, some big flavours but still a lot of acid. Nice tight red fruit.

Corte do Cama Sforzato di Valtellina 2010
Intense sweet mature oak and oxidative in an old way. Very intense of fruit and fruit sweetness, a lot of vanilla notes from the oak, still quite a lot of acidity but a fairly modern kind of wine.

Albareda Sforzato di Valtellina 2010
Even squeakier and more intense, softer and sweeter on the palate, very hot too, robust and generous but big wine.
