WineScores' Review

Satisfying, fresh, traditional.
Through a process of drying grapes called appassimento, this wine and others like it become much more concentrated. The Campofiorin continues the tradition of using classic Veronese grape varieties to produce this aromatic red blend.
Expect sunbaked earth, dried rose petals, espresso, dark chocolate, sweet and savoury spices, cedar chips and tobacco on the nose. It is fresh (the concentration is slightly less than the 2009 vintage) with flavours of dark powdery mocha, dried cherries and prune plums with spiced espresso on the finish.
A satisfying red made for food.
Pair: risotto, grilled meats, hearty pastas and aged cheeses

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”.
