WineScores' Review


This Primitivo (a relative of Zinfandel and known in the southern region of Puglia, Italy) offers gobs of purple berry and black cherry notes, baking spice and vanilla, mocha a licorice with fine cocoa and pipe tobacco. The palate is plush and laden with spiced mocha, sarsaparilla and ripe berries. A nice juxtaposition of rustic charm and earthiness balanced with generous fruit.
Pair it with barbecued ribs or spicy sausage, hearty pasta dishes or food you'd pair with Zinfandel.

Second Review:
Earthy, plush, savoury.
The nose is earthy, mineral/soil notes atop spiced plums, briary berries, chocolate, leather, crushed purple flowers and savoury spices. The palate is equally succulent; carob, saline, spiced plums lead to a bittersweet cocoa and tobacco finish. Chalky textured tannins and a medium-long finish. Great acidity here to pair: eggplant caponata, rich seafoods, red sauces.

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 numeri
