WineScores' Review

Fragrant, velvety, fresh.
From a Sicilian icon, this Nero d'Avola is blended with small amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. It offers velvety aromas of black cherry and red plums, spicecake and an intense mineral/earthy core. That minerality is pronounced on the palate as well; cocoa, black fruits, tobacco and fine spice flavours are encased in powdery yet textural grape tannins.
Overall, good balance and structure and an excellent food wine.
Pair: Eggplant caponata, braised meats, roasted mushrooms and heartier pasta dishes.


Pairs great with Gone Crackers Olive Oil & Cracked Pepper

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.
