Scotus's emphasis on the will over the intellect is something he shares with the other famous Franciscan theologians: St Bonaventure and William of Ockham. You may find their views interesting too.
But can we love what we do not apprehend? Surely we must have an intellectual grip on God first.
However it would be a mistake to say Scotus wasn't an Aristotelian. Less faithful to Aristotle than Aquinas, certainly, but Aristotle still sets the metaphysical framework. (And Augustine the theological framework, perhaps.)
