Ca de fiecare data spre final de an, Davino lanseaza o noua serie a vinurilor sale rosii de top. Aceasta lansare se intampla si mai tarziu decat de obicei iar asta doar din dorinta producatorului de a matura vinurile si mai mult si a le oferi consumatorilor cat mai aproape de momentul optim la care pot fi baute. Dar asta nu inseamna ca ele nu pot fi tezaurizate inca multi ani de aici inainte. Din contra 🙂

Asadar, va propunem aceste vinuri la degustare aproape in premiera (au fost prezentate doar comerciantilor pana acum), ele nefiind inca disponibile pe rafturile magazinelor sau in restaurante.

In deschidere avem 3 vinuri albe tot de la Davino, pe care le-am degustat deja la lansare, dar care credem ca sunt in continuare interesante, mai ales din prisma evolutiei lor din primavara si pana acum.

Asadar, vinurile:

  • Davino Domaine Ceptura Blanc 2013
  • Davino Sauvignon Blanc Edition Limitee 2013
  • Davino Reserva Alb 2012
  • Iacob Rosu 2012
  • Iacob Feteasca Neagra 2011
  • Davino Purpura Valahica (Feteasca Neagra) 2011
  • Davino Domaine Ceptura Rouge 2011
  • Davino Flamboyant 2011

Degustarea va avea loc joi, 15 Ianuarie 2015, de la ora 19:30, la Restaurant Dada (Str. Matei Voievod 94bis). Sunt 12 locuri disponibile și fiecare costă 150 lei, sumă care include vinurile, o sticlă de apă și prezența noastră agreabilă. Pentru rezervari va rog contactati-ma pe email la cosmin.grozea@gmail.com sau la telefon 0723 240 102.

Degustare DAVINO (Marti 15 Octombrie 2013)

October 8, 2013 Leave a comment

Zilele acestea Davino se pregateste de lansarea noilor vinuri rosii din recolta 2010. Ne-am gandit sa vi le oferim in premiera la degustare pentru a le putea vedea inainte sa ajunga pe rafturile magazinelor de specialitate si in restaurante. Noi am fost surprinsi inca o data de noile vinuri mai ales venind dupa exceptionalul an 2009.

O alta premiera este un vin din noua gama, Iacob, si o scurta verticala de Revelatio pentru a vedea cum evolueaza in timp acest cupaj indraznet de Sauvignon Blanc & Feteasca Alba.

Iata vinurile propuse:

• 2009 DAVINO Revelatio (Sauvignon Blanc & Feteasca Alba)
• 2011 DAVINO Revelatio (Sauvignon Blanc & Feteasca Alba)
• 2011 Iacob Rosu (Cabernet Sauvignon & Feteasca Neagra)
• 2010 DAVINO Purpura Valahica (Feteasca Neagra)
• 2010 DAVINO Domaine Ceptura Rouge (Cabernet Sauvingon, Merlot & Feteasca Neagra)
• 2010 DAVINO Flamboyant (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot & Feteasca Neagra)
• Surpriza: incheiem seara cu un vin care s-a asezat foarte bine de la lansare.

Ne intoarcem la locatia de inceput a degustarilor noastre, restaurantul Dada, acum proaspat renovat si parca si mai primitor.

Degustarea va avea loc marti, 15 octombrie 2013, de la ora 19:00, la Restaurantul Dada (Str. Matei Voievod nr. 94bis). Sunt 20 de locuri disponibile și fiecare costă 190 de lei, sumă care include vinurile, aperitivele și prezența noastră agreabilă.

Rezervări la +40722 141 879 (Nicușor) sau +40723 240 102 (Cosmin)
sau pe email: cosmin.grozea@gmail.com si nicusor.cazan@gmail.com

DAVINO Domaine Ceptura Rouge 2009 vs 2010

September 10, 2012 Leave a comment

I received two bottles of Domaine Ceptura Rouge 2010 and 2009 last week from DAVINO to entertain an academic exercise and compare the two wines. It is important to mention that Domaine Ceptura Rouge 2010 will probably be released on the market not earlier than the spring of 2013. That means that the wine ages in the bottle anywhere between 8-12 months prior to its release.

Domanine Ceptura Rouge is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Feteasca Neagra aged for 8-10 months in new Romanian oak barrels.

Perhaps the title is a bit tricky as both wines maintain the continuity in style and quality that DAVINO managed to build over the years. Perhaps what puts 2009 on a higher scale is the advantage of benefiting from an almost perfect ripening season. As stated before, 2009 was the best vintage over more than 20-30 years in Dealu Mare, having the right conditions at right time. The wines have lush fruit and fully ripe and sweet tannins. The 2010 was a more capricious vintage than 2009. However, rigorous work in the vineyard and keeping the yields low produced good quality fruit. Both wines show good structure and balance, intense aromas and flavors and a medium to long aftertaste. Both wines have enough complexities to make them enticing.

There is however a slight difference between the two vintages, as 2009 seems to possess voluptuous fruit – without being tiring or too much, on the contrary, the lush flavors and the fully ripe tannins make it extremely approachable and pleasant to drink already. What never stops to surprise me is how well it evolves on the second day after uncorking it, showing a more complex nose and more interesting flavors (appealing truffles aromas), retaining its freshness in spite of all its extraction. There is a real potential for evolution for this wine and, as tempting as it is to drink it now, do try to save some bottles as in 3-4 years this will be even better. I always enjoy it more on the second day. This is usually the characteristic of a great wine, to be better as it gradually opens up on the following day.

2010 exhibits a higher acidity making it fresher, with a suppler body, but still retaining the intense flavors and the structure. It certainly feels younger, but still elegant. I am rather sure that these additional 6-8 months of aging in the bottle will make it rounder and more harmonious. We find the same extraction that marks DAVINO’s style and I believe that  2010 will probably take more time to be as accessible as the ripe 2009.

There is unquestionably a consistency in style for Domaine Ceptura Rouge and this was even better highlighted by a vertical tasting of 6 vintages of DCR organized by Vinexpert last year. These two recent vintages only confirm this style and success.
