WineScores' Review

Smooth, savoury, expressive.
Primitivo is a relative of California's famous Zinfandel and is commonly found in the southern region of Puglia in Italy.
Expect attractive aromas of blueberry, baking spices, star anise, tealeaf and leather with a core of molasses and soy sauce, lending it an umami character. The palate shows expressive purple fruit, cola and licorice flavours. Smooth and fresh with fine tannins.
Pair: Barbecued ribs or spicy sausage, hearty pasta dishes or dishes you'd normally pair with Zinfandel.

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”.
