WineScores' Review

Value, classic, supple.
This is a wonderfully priced DOCG Chianti for everyday meals of pasta, slow roasted meats or pizza.
Classic aromas of strawberry compote and cherries, saddle leather, spice box and tobacco. The palate is an echo of the nose - rustic with restrained fruit, tomato leaf, tobacco and fine spice. It has attractive suppleness and fine tannins; loads of acidity ensure its a perfect food wine.

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”.
