WineScores' Review

Grown on hillside vines in Serralunga d'Alba in limestone, marl and sandy soils, this Nebbiolo was aged for one year in French barrique than a second year in larger French oak cask.
The 250-acre Fontanafredda is the largest contiguous wine estate in Langhe, located in the cru of Serralunga d'Alba, is also the largest certified organic winery in Piedmont.
Expect a velvety nose with cherry, old roses and dried strawberry, chocolate covered almond, nutmeg and moist earth. It has a mature but fresh palate that is silky but also has a firm structure. Flavours of strawberry tea, leather and pipe tobacco stand out; the finish is long and fresh.

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”.
