WineScores' Review

This fresh Barbera, from hillside vineyards in the Monferrato and Langhe regions of Piedmont, offers luscious cherry, vanilla, rose petal and sweet spices rounded out with espresso and leather. It's extremely appealing with its juicy fruit, coffee, cocoa and sunbaked earth flavours. It has both power and finesse with enough rustic Italian character to make you think of pairing it with hearty pastas, slow roasted meat dishes and classic Italian cheeses.

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”.
