WineScores' Review

Supple, generous, powerful.
Frescobaldi has over 700 years of winemaking history - truly impressive, even by Old World standards.
Tenuta Perano is located in Gaiole in Chianti at 500masl. The exposure and elevation of the vineyard imparts a radiant purple hue, intense fruit and tannic structure. It is predominantly Sangiovese as expected and was aged 12 months in a combination od stainless and oak barriques.
Notes of plum and cherry, vanilla and licorice are lashed with roses, sweet brown spices and chocolate.It's a suppe winr with notable generosity. Coffee, dark chocolate, toasted spice and espresso flavours dominate. It has a powerful finish with firm chalky tannins.
Pair: Mediterranean dishes, cured or grilled meats and tomato based sauces.

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”.
