WineScores' Review

Vigneti Zabu was established by the Farnese Group in 2007. The grapes for this singular red were plucked from vineyards located in western Sicily, south of Palermo, around the municipality of Sambuca di Sicilia, grown on clay-loam soils at nearly 1000 feet above sea level; it was aged six months in French and American oak.
It is a fresh and rustic red with characters of earth and brown spices, red fruit, saddle leather, cocoa and iodine. It's savoury and has distinct spice and chalky mineral, herb and wild berry flavours. A singular wine with a strong Sicilian stamp that shows good bones; it's made for Sicilian seafood dishes, fried eggplant, tomato dishes and assorted 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”.
