WineScores' Review

Consistent, fresh, classic.
This Chianti Classico, from Zingarelli is Sangiovese with small amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot that was aged in Slavonion and French oak for 24 months before bottling.
Notes of strawberry and red cherries, vanilla, dried roses, tangerine zest, leather, mint and fine spices lead to a fresh palate. It has an earthy classic character with red fruits, tobacco, cedar and spice. Medium-bodied, this is a wine that consistently offers good value.

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”.
