WineScores' Review

Harmonious, silky, juicy.
Monte del Fra is located in Custoza, only 15km from Lake Garda near Verona and the Lena di Mezzo is an entirely terraced estate of 18 hectares that lies in the hilly heart of Fumane. It is comprised of clay and limestone soils.
A classic blend of Corvina, Corvinone and Rondinella the 2016 suggests black cherry and star anise, coffee, dried plums, leather, vanilla and balsamic aromas. It has a silky palate withopulent dried fruit brown spices, espresso and black chocolate flavours. It's juicy and affluent, harmonious and persistent.

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”.
