Domenico 2005 Super Tuscan Style / Amador County
In 1955 in New York, Dominick who is called Domenico in Italian was introduced to these traditions by his Nonno (grandfather), Domenico Giovinazzo. In the basement of their home was a wine press that Nonno showed Dominick; passing down from one generation to another the love of handcrafting wine.
On the nose, bright cherry and raspberry are accented by hints of leather, honey, and herbs. A sip brings forth lively red berries that blend with notes of honey and a bit of spice. Semi-firm tannins and a clean, dry finish make it a very approachable wine, true to the character of its Italian equivalents.
