WineScores' Review

The 170 year old Gancia is located in Canelli, Piedmont and is home to UNESCO underground cathedrals. Carlo Gancia studied Champagne making in Reims prior to establishing Fratelli Ganci in 1850 with his brother Edoardo. They began making sparkling wine from the local Moscato grape; Gancia claims to be the first Italian sparkling wine in 1865.
While this Prosecco is made in Veneto, within the DOC of Prosecco, Gancia makes more than 20 different sparkling wines from Langhe and Veneto in both charmat and traditional methods.
Candied lemons and melon liqueur, rose talc and pear aromas lead to an off-dry and juicy palate that is fruity and bright. Crisp, refreshing and approachable.

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”.
