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

Intense ruby red in color with a powerful, lingering and well-balanced nose. On the palate, this wine is velvety, full, harmonious, warm and well-rounded.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2006 Korem is 55% Bovale Sardo, 35% Carignano and 10% Cannonau. A fresh, vibrant red, it reveals layers of crushed rocks, minerals, grilled herbs, dark jammy fruit and French oak in a rich, full-bodied frame. This is another beautifully balanced wine from Argiolas. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2016. "

Other Red Red wines are certainly not limited to Cabernet and Pinot Noir - or even Nebbiolo and Grenache.
