WineScores' Review

Outstanding, postured, supple.
Tenuta di Arceno is an estate located in Castelnuovo Berardegna near Siena in Tuscany and il fauno di Arcanum is a Bordeaux-style blend that embodies the diversity of the estate. Sourced primarily from the Di Sotto, La Curva, Colombaio and San Giovanni blocks located in the lower southwest section of the estate; it is a warmer, exposed subsection that ripens early. In addition, the soils possess a significant amount of clay, with good water retention producing wines that tend to be more voluptuous and lush.
The 2015 is an outstanding Super Tuscan with components of Merlot (59%), Cabernet Franc (30%), Cabernet Sauvignon (9%) and Petit Verdot. It rolls out sweet wild cherries and wild blackberries, leather and brown spices, dark chocolate and tobacco aromas. A supple entry rolls into a postured wine that is fresh and deftly woven. Spiced plum cake and bitter cocoa, lead to a finish of tealeaf and cedar flavours.

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”.
