WineScores' Review

Savoury, fresh, youthful.
This IGT baby Super Tuscan is primarily Merlot with other red varieties. The different varietals were fermented separately in small steel tanks to maintain their individual characteristics. The alcoholic fermentation was followed by malolactic fermentation, again in steel tanks and then aged for 10 months, partly in Ornellaia's barrique and partly in cement tanks.
Black raspberries, strawberry jam, carob, roses, licorice and cola spices are blanketed over marmite and grilled sausage aromas. It has a lovely fresh entry with power and generosity; still youthful the red fruit, cocoa, cedar and tobacco flavours need a little time to smooth and integrate. Decant if drinking now, or hold for 3-5 years.

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”.
