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.

Established in 1999, DOMINI represents a joint venture between Domingos Soares Franco of Jose Maria da Fonseca and Cristiano van Zeller, one of Portugal’s famed “Douro Boys” (a small group of the Douro’s top port and table wine producers).

Domini Douro 2010 - 92 points & Cellar Selection, Wine Enthusiast/ This dense, black-colored wine throws great weight around. It’s firmly concentrated, with stylish elegance from perfectly ripe black-currant fruits. Dark and lush, it finishes with soft acidity. It could benefit from several years aging, so drink from 2017.

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.”
