WineScores' Review

Perfumed, smooth, woven.
The name fonte del re pays homage to an old spring near the town of Morro d'Alba in Marche. Lacrima is a very special ancient variety, with soft tannins, brought back to life in small amounts around the region. It's a highly perfumed variety and this one is as expressive as I'd hoped. Violets an rose petals pour from the glass followed by warm raspberry and muddled cherry aromas that are woven with sarsaparilla, fine white pepper and chocolate. The palate dances with purple fruits lashed with spice, cedar, tobacco and leather. Smooth and ripe it trails that classic Italian grape bitterness and chalky cocoa tannins.
Second review: May 2022
Smoky, sweet and floral this perfumed red is lashed with raspberry, blueberry, licorice, white pepper and cola aromas. The palate has notable freshness and a juicy character with purple fruit and red licorice flavours. The finish trails cocoa tannins.

Pairs Great with Gone Crackers Roasted Shallot & Herb

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”.
