Giornata is some of my favorite American Italian wines. I have yet to try a wine from them I have disliked.

I only wished this offering would have been a mixed half case instead of 6 bottles of Il Campo.

The Il Campo is wonderful, dont get me wrong, I just like to have an assortment from Brian on hand.

This was my #1 from the tasting! Alas, by the eighth bottle things were getting a bit fuzzy. :-P

As I recall, it reminded me of a rustic French vin de table, but obviously with Sangiovese, Italian style grapes. While I do appreciate a $700 bottle of Dom, I am a peasant at heart. Give me this very easy drinking stuff every day, and I'm a happy horse.

Average going prices are just under $20, so at $12.50/bottle, this is a nice wine.woot!

Please do not increment my Quality Posts count. 69 is a good place to be. ;-)

We had a mixed offering earlier. Haven't pulled the cork on this one yet from last April, but this time it's way less/bottle.
Some notes from Brian of Giornata:

I do pretty standard maceration with the reds in this offer. I do longer macerations more with my nebbiolo and aglianico. il Campo is all neutral wool and even some stainless (for stylistic reasons). This gets bottled after about 9 months of aging to keep all the juicy brightness I'm looking for. pH of the wines are about 3.3 if memory serves. I don't rely on numbers much unless something I'm tasting doesn't make sense.

Thank you very much Brian. Unfortunately since we make such a small quantity of wine. The il Campo red production is actually bigger than all my other reds combined. I just didn't have the inventory needed to put an offer out worth woot's time.

I'm excited to offer this wine however because it really is meant as a daily drinker and at this price hopefully fits the bill for most of you.

Wow! Your #1 wine. We are honored. I can handle the rusticity comment in your tasting notes. With this wine we make to pay homage to all the great table wines we have enjoyed all over Italy. I find a bit of rusticity charming. There's nothing more boring than a clean, sterile industrialized wine devoid of character in my opinion.

It's actually about the same price per bottle if you look at the relative values of each of the 3 wines previously offered. The Il Campo retails for $20, while the Vermentino sells for $25 and the Gemellaia goes for $30. So with a 3 bottle offering for $50 it averaged out to $16.67/bottle but we were really paying more like $13.33/$16.67/$20.00 with the $13.33 value applied to the Il Campo. Still less than before @ $12.50 per and a great value I'm sure, just trying to put the previous offer price in perspective.

I'll be checking in on the board periodically to answer questions, but my wife and I will also be pouring our wines tomorrow in Napa at the Oxbow Public Market for the Napa Truffle Festival from 10AM - 2PM. If you happen to be in the area please stop by to say hello.

We will be pouring our Nebbiolo and Barbera. We are hoping to cultivate truffles on our vineyard property next to our Nebbiolo.

This wine played very well at the Austin tasting. I'm about to head to bed, so I'll post notes in the morning.

I also quite enjoyed this wine. It's a nice simple Sangiovese blend. A bit of candied fruit on the nose. On the palate, I got dark fruits - black cherries, maybe some blackberry. The finish wasn't super long but it didn't matter because I kept wanting to go back to my glass before the finish faded. This would be great with pizza or even some grilled meats. The woot price makes this a nice everyday drinker.

Even after all my studying, I can't pick a smell or a taste out of wine. I blame my lifetime of allergy suffering. Sounds good anyway.

If someone said "I smell XYZ" then I can sniff and kinda get it. But on my own, I'm as clueless as I was before I studied up on wine tasting.

(And I knew someone would comment on that. Brat. )

Sometimes 'like' is all ya need to say. The Giornata lineup has some exquisite cal-Italia offerings, but the Il Campo Red is the everyday drinker. Quite frankly it over-delivers on that promise at the SRP of $20 and at this price is a no-brainier.

I LIKE it too. Quite a bit.

LOL, much love to you, TT - I just had to do it...

I agree that the power of suggestion is (as the term implies) powerful, when tasting wine. I often notice that specific flavors and smells seem to come to the forefront when fellow tasters mention them.

Rob provided each of us with a flavor wheel on the rpm tour which was very helpful in determining and describing what we tasted. You start in the center and work your way out to specific flavors.

No Finining - This is one that we cross flow filter which I actually consider to be a gentler form of filtration.

Don't feel bad. After more than a year and a half of drinking many, many bottles of the 06 White Oak cab and Merlots (from multiple wwoot orders), it was just two nights ago when I tucked into one and said "oh! That flavor I love so much in these wines. It's cherry."

Only that the usual great table wines from Europe (lived there most of my life) retail in Europe (in the wine drinking countries - so high taxation northern countries don't count) between $3 and $7.
Completely different price segment. Most people would never buy a wine over $10 for a table wine. So, I hope that the quality is waaaay better than trying to be a 'table wine'.

Hi Brian! Your mixed offering last year was one of my first purchases on Woot. I enjoyed all 3. There was so much chatter on the boards, as well as excellent descriptions that it was impossible to pass up! I can only hope that the VA legislators will fix this stupid law so we can receive wine again from Woot.

I got notes of juicy cherry. As has already been mentioned this one was a big hit with most at the Austin gathering.

Ideal storage temp for reds is 55F. However, since those are of th daily-drinking variety and will likely be drunk soon, storage temp isn't much of a concern.

There are tannins, but they are soft and not very fierce as they are in couple of our other wines.

Yes this is true. I've often wondered how it's possible that such charming wines exist over there at such fair prices. I attribute it to the land and wineries being owned and paid off generations ago. With this wine I'm actually thinking of the wines that get plopped down on the table as rosso in Italy. Many times the bottles are unlabeled and the owner of the place tacks a slight surcharge on the meal for consumption of the wine. Many of these places I also never looked at a menu and got out the door for 10 euros for a fabulous meal with wine. It helped being with locals, but unfortunately this wouldn't happen in the US...Oh how I miss Italy.

The wine laws certainly are a bummer. We are having some success selling our wines in your area and I will be out there in the 1st week of April to hopefully gain some more traction. DC has been a good market for us and I'm hoping to have success in VA.

We did a dinner last year @ Aida wine bar in Columbia,MD that was huge fun and had a great time in Baltimore. I've never seen better maintained roads than in MD. Let us Californians have some of those tax dollars.

We still need to get VA going though. My wife and I literally do everything ourselves though so there's only so much time ya know.

While the temperature does matter (73 degrees is a tad high, but not horrible), temperature variations are what hurts the wine. I've been told you are better off to have a wine at a constant 70 degrees than to have it in a location that is constantly fluctuating between 60 and 70 degrees. If your house is set to 73 degrees, just stick them in a lower level closet (or preferably a basement) and you will be fine. 73 degrees will certainly not ruin your wine, it will just not allow for any long-term aging.
