WineScores' Review

Organic, oily, fleshy.
Da Vero is an organic wine made by Araldica, a third-generation, family-operated co-operative based in Piedmont, Italy. Araldica has expanded their winemaking projects, working with local farmers and growers throughout Italy to produce well-priced still and sparkling wines from local grape varietals in regions such as Veneto, Lombardy, Abruzzo and Sicily.
The Catarratto grapes are sourced from the north-west corner of Sicily, at Calatafimi, between Marsala and Palermo. The vines grow in high altitude vineyards (around 500m) with chalky soils. The vineyards were converted to organic viticulture in 2005, the wine was mature only in stainless steel.
Oyster shell, honey, green almonds and crunchy tree fruit aromas are underscored by a good dollop of pine resin. It's a fleshy wine with an oily texture and flavours of wild honey and citrus pith. A straightforward weekday dinner white.

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”.
