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

On the nose, this wine shows black plum, blackberry and cassis notes, with integrated toast, clove,potpourri and cola. The fruit flavors come through on the palate, carrying forward the spice and rustic aromas. It shows wonderful ripe black cherry, raspberry and violet notes, along with spicy, yet floral notes of lavender, anise and dark chocolate. Acidity is moderate and highlights the earthly mineral-driven terroir. This wine develops into a rich and generous example of what Cabernet Franc-based blends can achieve in the Tuscan hills.

Blend: 51% Cabernet Franc, 32% Merlot, 17% Cabernet Sauvignon

Critical Acclaim

"Jess Jackson and Barbara Banke purchased this estate in 1994. The property, near the town of Castelnuovo Berardenga, focuses on Bordeaux varietal blends, this one built on cabernet franc (51 percent), merlot and cabernet sauvignon. It’s more vinous than many super-Tuscans, opening with air to full-on richness, not heavy but complete. New oak scents give way to brisk notes of forest floor and black olives, finishing floral and bright. It leaves the mouth feeling refreshed, with hints of anise in a zesty fragrance that lasts. An intriguing interpretation of the Tuscan hills."
