WineScores' Review

Finesse, elegant, delicate.
Le Rughe was established in the 1960s in Gaiarine, in the province of Treviso, and today makes wine from grapes from the DOCG Prosecco Conegliano Valdobbiadene as well as across the ridge from those famous Prosecco vines, in Cor. Cor is a much cooler climate and Le Rughe, where in addition to the classic Glera DOC, Moscato, Pinot Nero, Chardonnay, Pinot Bianco (in organic conversion) is rooted with resistant varieties such as: Solaris, a white berry with explosive aroma, Aromera, and Johannitter (a magical crossing of Riesling varieties).
This is not your standard Prosecco, the bead is smaller and it has a straw colour along with aromas of apple skin, lemongrass, acacia, talcum, orange segments and a whiff of basil. Juicy and pristine it has a delicate character with lovely fruit expression. Expect complexity and elegance with a good dose of finesse.

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”.
