WineScores' Review

Creamy, fresh, value.
Araldica is a third-generation, family-operated co-operative based in Piedmont. They work with over 230 Piedmont grower members and produce the high quality Piedmont wines from the most prestigious winegrowing regions but they also make wines in a number of other Italian regions, such as this one from Sicily.
Made entirely from Catarratto sourced from the Marsala area on the west coast of Sicily, and from hillside vineyards near Alcamo, this wine was bottled fresh, after a short period of aging on the fine lees in stainless steel tanks.
Wild flowers, beeswax, lemon peel and pineapple aromas roll onto a palate with creamy yellow fruits and lemongrass flavours. It has an oily texture and nice concentration, dry and lively it a slam dunk in the good bang-for-your-buck category.

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”.

We do not share your email address with anyone. Your email address will be used for the WineDiva newsletter You can opt out of receiving the newsletter anytime.
