WineScores' Review

Made in a traditional, regional style of re-fermenting grapes from already made Amarone, in order to achieve a richness and concentration to a second wine - in this case the Tomassi "Ripasso".
The aromas are expectedly sweet - dried cherries and plum, spicecake and brown spices, chocolate and vanilla. It's a substantial wine with supple chocolate covered cherry, roasted espresso, dates and figs and spicebox flavours. It is smooth with a seductive weight and leaves the impression of chewiness in the mouth.
Pair with rich slow roasted meat dishes or finish with strong, hard cheeses or dark chocolate.

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”.
