Domini - A Best Value, Parker's Wine Bargains/ Fonseca's Douro entrant, it is usually on the lighter side, bright and elegant, with some character and some persistent flavors.
Domini 2005 - 87 Points, Wine Advocate/ The 2005 DOMINI is a blend of Touriga Franca and Touriga Nacional in more or less equal proportions, with 19% Tinta Roriz. It spent three months in new American oak before release. The Touriga Nacional dominates this on opening, giving it a sweet ‘n’ sour plum nuance. It is bright and elegant, with some character and some persistent flavors. The American oak is not intrusive, thankfully...This is a pretty nice performance, though, from the basic “Domini,” which is well priced and a good value in this vintage. Listed among “Portuguese Wine Values.”
Domini Douro 2009 - 90 points, Wine Enthusiast/ An opulent feeling wine, with its rich, rounded fruits and sweet tannins. There is a juicy character here, lined with new wood polish. The wine has density, generous black plum juice and a hint of prunes. It is powerful and ageworthy.
Domini 2007- 90 points, i-winereview.com/ …The grapes for this wine are all traditional Douro varieties and are sourced from vineyards in the Douro Superior and the CimaCorgo. The 2007 Domini is an easy drinking blend of TourigaFranca and TourigaNacional. It is dark ruby in color and shows red fruit, smoke and loam on the nose. On the palate it reveals good concentration with touches of violets and herbs and earth notes, ripe tannins and a pleasant finish.
Domini 2007 - Wine Spectator/ Redolent of crushed red fruits, this youthful red is medium-bodied and fresh-tasting.
