WineScores' Review

Earthy, smooth, persistent.
Veneto's Masi brings its trade to Argentina, to the high Mendoza vineyards of Tupungato in the Uco Valley. Here, they make this blend of Corvina (classic Italian variety) and Malbec in the appasimento method of drying grapes to add depth and richness to the final wine.
It's a consistently solid wine with a nose of dried cherries, espresso, prune plums, dark chocolate, mint and brown spices. Very good freshness in the mouth with a smooth texture and nicely integrated fruit and mocha flavours. Overall good balance and structure with a long finish.
Pair:Roasted meats, strongly flavoured and mature cheeses or mushroom stuffed ravioli.

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”.
