WineScores' Review

Value, rustic, smooth.
Puglia's red variety, Primitivo is served up at a buy-by-the-case price in this bottle. Grapes come from San Marzano and Salento grown at nearly 100 meters above the sea level, with a high average temperature little rainfall; soils are mainly composed by clay. Aged solely in stainless this rustic and earthy red has brown spice, wild red berry and cherry aromas layered with Italian herbs, espresso, tobacco and leather. There's nice levity on the palate; flavours of dried cherry, balsamic and spice flavours dominate. A smooth food-friendly red for sausage, game, hearty pastas and eggplant parmigiana.

Pairs great with Gone Crackers Parmesan & Rosemary

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”.
