WineScores' Review

Made from traditional Veronese varieties Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara, the Bonacosta is named for the foot of the hillside vineyards in the classico zone. The nose emits cherries and chocolate, leather and sweet spice with a hint of rose petals. It's rustic and straightforward with mocha, cherry, spice and leather flavours to echo the nose. Expect good acidity, making it a respectable dinner wine with tomato-based pastas, grilled meats and most Italian cheeses and dishes.

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”.
