Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Kepos is not just a ‘small' Ampeleia but a particular selection of our territory and grapes: it is the expression of the lower part of the property, Ampeleia di Sotto, the "hotter" sections of the estate where the typical Mediterranean grapes are cultivated. A wine for immediate drinking pleasure displaying aromas of Mediterranean maquis with hints os species, flowers and fruit. Delicate and immediate fragrances enhancing the complex, intriguing and exciting personality of Ampeleia.

COLOUR: ruby-red.
BOUQUET: enticingly complex nose with hints of wonderful red fruit and spice of myrtle and laurel.
TASTE: Full bodied on the palate with delicate acidity and a long and succulent finish of black cherry and raspberry.

Critical Acclaim

"Offers aromas of sweet, ripe strawberry, with hints of red licorice. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins and a fresh, clean finish. A stylish blend. Grenache, Mourvèdre, Alicante, Carignano and Marselan. "
