Folks, this one is a winner!  Awesome, awesome, awesome.  I’ll take a backseat for a moment and allow Dama to speak for itself:

Dama writes;

“Rich, earthy, striking red wine seeks passionate consumer for possible Long Term Relationship.
Me: notes of black cherry, vanilla, currants, cocoa and licorice. Loves food and pleasant company.
You: discerning, fun-loving, must appreciate a full body and like an earthy, dirty finish. Age, race, gender, and wallet size unimportant. Take me home today to experience all I have to offer!”

Some of you may remember this wine from about a year ago, when we poured it by the glass at Cellar for a brief, yet fulfilling time.  I’m slightly perplexed as to why they’ve changed the bottle so much this year- there used to be a pretty woman’s silhouette painted in a nice purple watercolor on the label.  I was pretty fond of it, and so was everyone else.  But- the good news is, the wine is just as delicious, so I won’t dwell on it.

This is a must, especially for people who love Italian wines.  I can say with certainty that I have been rendered speechless in the past when greeted with a truly amazing Italian bottle- the problem is, they have usually come with high price tags.  Obviously, this can be said of any country.  But if you’re like me, and you fell in love with a really pricey Italian wine that someone else paid for, and ever since then you’ve been saying to yourself- why can’t I find wine that good for less money?- TRY the Dama!  It will remind you of WHY you liked that Italian wine so much.  It’s juicy, earthy, perfect by itself and with food, deep and impressive.  And it’s $19 a bottle! 

If you remain unconvinced, feel free to grab a free sample at the Wine Sale this Satuday, the 26th, from 12-2!

  1. WHERE can I buy a case of the Dama Montepulciano, 2007 ????
    I am in Los Angeles, there are many dealers, who, as soon as I request it, seem to say they can possibly do it as a special request…why? We enjoy this wine at a fantastic little Italian restaurant in Playa del Rey, called Pinguini and now they are out….help me

    (would be fantastic for Santa to leave in my hubby’s stocking)

    • Hey Shawn- if someone can special order it for you, that might be the only way to go. Our distributor (in SC) is out, and we’ve been told they’ve switched distributors (at least in our state) and we can’t get any more. Wish I could be of more help!

      • You were helpful, thank you! An answer is ALWAYS better than thinking one’s going crazy! 🙂
        Thanks and Happy Everything!

  2. Nice write-up – I love DaMa Italian wines, too!

    I know this is from a couple of years ago, and you may have solved your mystery since then. Just in case, though, I thought I would drop into sat that there are TWO different and distinct wineries using the name “DaMa”.

    The one that had (still has, I think) a silhouette of a purple lady on the label is a winery in Walla Walla, Washington. It was created by two women named Dawn and Mary, and thus their two names together produce the name “DaMa”.

    The wine you reviewed here is made by a winery in the Abruzzo region of Italy. Its creator is a gentleman named Dante Marramiero, and you can see where he got his company’s name as well.

    It’s easy to see why there would be confusion, but hopefully this helps!

    • I’m sorry, but I’m not a wholesaler. The distributor that used to sell this wine is no longer in business. I’m not sure of what’s become of this wine. Too bad.
