WineScores' Review

Rustic, fresh, cherries.
Family owned since 1956, Cantine Aldegheri is 50 hectares of vineyards, and a winery located in Sant' Ambrogio di Valpolicella.
Using mainly the indigenous local varieties Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara, they also have plantings of Dindarella, Cabernet, Merlot, Garganega and Pinot.
Cherry aromas are muddled with leather, dried plum, spice and mocha, notes echoed on the palate. Dried cherries, juicy forest berries and vanilla, earth and spice flavours dominate the palate. Lovely freshness here, a Ripasso on the leaner more traditional side with classic rustic character and bitter medium-length finish.

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”.
