WineScores' Review

Vivace, frothy, juicy.
For more than 100 years the Medici family as made quality Lambruscos; today they own 60-hecatres across Emilia in the region of Emilia~Romana.
The Phermento is a natural wine made from Lambrusco, they refer to it as the ancestral method of sparkling wine production method, which uses yeasts and sugars of the actual grapes as opposed to adding selected conventional sugar and yeast.
An unflitered frizzante with a hazy ruby hue, this juicy wine produces aromas of cherry kool-aid and dried roses, honey and tangerine and raspberry tea. Echoing the nose, the palate offers raspberry and orange pekoe tea, clay and wet stone flavours. It has a vivace prickle on the tongue, is pristine with a pithy finish.

Pairs great with Gone Crackers Undressed.

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”.
