"The 2012 Monte di Grazia is showing a dark and brooding display, as smoky minerality slowly blows off to reveal crushed blueberries and savory spice, with dusty florals and a hint of air-dried meats. Silky textures flood the senses, quickly firmed up by a mix of tart red fruits, minerals, and nervy acids, as the 2012 Rosso glides across the palate with energy to spare. The finish is medium in length, ending on a savory note, with wild herbs, spice, lingering floral tones, and a twang of tart cranberry."
