WineScores' Review

Juicy, fragrant, textural.
Araldica's Alasia Langhe Nebbiolo is made from Nebbiolo grapes cultivated in the Langhe hills around the town of Alba in northern Italy's Piemonte region. The vineyards have a south westerly aspect and are situated at altitudes between 200 and 300m above sea level and are an average age of 30 years. The wine is fermented in stainless steel tanks then transferred to stainless steel tanks for malolactic fermentation and is then racked to a mixture of French oak barrels (40%) and large traditional Piedmont oak vats for 12 months maturation. The two components are blended and bottled after ageing.
Expect fragrant Maraschino cherries and orange peel, vanilla, cedar, pipe tobacco, dried roses and star anise aromas. It's a medium-bodied red with fine, textural tannins and flavours of red cherry, tobacco, leather, cocoa and spice. It has a juicy character and is perfect for meat stews, pastas with fresh pesto, pizza or roasted smoky eggplant dishes.

Pairs great with Gone Crackers Parmesan & Rosemary

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”.
