WineScores' Review

Charming, juicy, fragrant.
Some wines just make you smile, this utterly delightful Dolcetto (Italian meaning: little sweet one) is a charming one that does just that.
It was aged 8-months, in stainless and concrete.
A juicy red I'd be happy to drink any day (especially with a slight chill before serving) that dives into pretty grape-y aromas woven with a dusting of dried rose petals and cherry atop earthier notes. In the mouth, botanical, grape juice, fine spice and tobacco flavours dominate. Approachable and charming, it's an enchanting red to drink while young and fresh - preferably with pizza.

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”.
