WineScores' Review

Earthy, levity, classic.
This Sangiovese dominant blend went through malolactic fermentation before being aged in Slavonian oak and a small amount in stainless steel. First produced in 1985, it is known for it's fruit expression and that's certainly been my experience with it.
The 2020 delivers strawberry and plum compote, leather, sweet brown spices, cocoa and pipe tobacco aromas. It has notable levity and the palate is more earthy and restrained than the nose. Spice, cocoa, tealeaf and coffee flavours are primary.
Pairs with slow cooked meats, classic Italian pizzas or hearty tomato sauces.

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”.
