WineScores' Review

Juicy, fragrant, energetic.
Made from the trinity of Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara, this brilliant ruby Bardolino was constructed in stainless on the Bonomo family estate just east of Lake Garda in the Veneto, in the municipality of Sommacampagna. While Monte del Fra's Lena di Mezzo Amarone (also available in BCLS) is a knock-out, this charming red (a blend of Corvina 65%, Rondinella 35% and Sangiovese) is bouncy and quaffable.
It's truly one of my favourite drinking reds with its fragrant dewy raspberry and cherry aromas woven with vanilla, candied violets, cardamon and star anise with faint cocoa and pipe tobacco. The palate is as juicy as the nose; vibrant high-toned red fruit and sweet brown spice flavours take center stage. Utterly charming and energetic with heaps of freshness; amazing value here.


Pairs great with Gone Crackers Undressed.

WineDiva.ca was launched prior to WineScores, in February 2004. WineDiva is the alter ego of Daenna Van Mulligen. She wears a cork tiara and is proof that a girl can have her w(h)ine and drink it too! WineDiva.ca is a tongue-in-cheek approach to a very serious passion for all things wine. WineDiva’s goal is to make wine fun, subtly educational & deviously inspirational. Vintage reciting wine snobs need not apply. WineDiva is painting the wine world pink and drinking it all in, and her glass is always (at least) half-full.

WineScores is the more serious follow up to WineDiva.ca. WineScores was born from the demand to see wine writer Daenna Van Mulligen provide scores on her wine reviews. These are numerical scores based on a 100 point scale – an internationally recognized form of rating wines. These numbers provide a snapshot for consumers on how the wine reviewer views the overall quality of the wine. For more information on scoring wine, go to “about”.

We do not share your email address with anyone. Your email address will be used for the WineDiva newsletter You can opt out of receiving the newsletter anytime.
