WineScores' Review

Generous, harmonious and silky.
Made in the historical method, this red IGT blend uses grapes left to dry on vine. The dried grapes are then added to the wine and left to referment together creating a more luscious and fruity wine. It's not unlike the appassimento wines of Veneto (Amarone, Recioto and Ripasso) but the process differs. The Tuscan version is known as Governo all'Uso Toscana.
Expect an enticingly scented wine that's earthy with black cherry, leather, dried flowers, spice and salted licorice. It's a supple red with notable intensity and flavours of chocolate and leather. The texture is silky and quite plush. It is generous, harmonious and mouthfilling. Delicious.

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”.
