WineScores' Review

Silky, fragrant, woven.
Owned by the Jackson Family of Wineries (Kendall Jackson et al) Tentua di Arceno is an historic estate near the village of San Gusme. This 2020, Sangiovese is blended with 15% Merlot and was aged 10 months in 2-to-3 year old French oak
. It is a wonderful classico with notes of star anise and leather, vanilla, plums and strawberry, roses and chocolate. It's a supple winr with a silky texture and on-point freshness. Earth and red berry with cocoa and spice flavours, it's a very fulfilling wine with notable length and beautifully woven tannins.

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”.
