Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 12.5%

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

This beautiful Valpolicella is made of 80% corvina veronese/corvinone and 20% rondinella. It has a brilliant ruby red color and has aromas of cherry blossoms and spices. The mouth feel is tremendous while the taste is elegant and harmonious with cherry blossoms, black tea, and spices. This wine is perfect as an aperitif and excellent with semi-mature cheeses, antipasti, pasta with red sauce and main courses of red and white meat.

The Borgias on SHOWTIME
Oscar-winning actor Jeremy Irons will star in the epic drama series as Rodrigo Borgia, the cunning, manipulative patriarch of The Borgia family who ascends to the highest circles of power within Renaissance-era Italy.

The Borgias will be a complex, unvarnished portrait of one of history's most intriguing and infamous dynastic families. The series begins as the family's patriarch Rodrigo (Jeremy Irons) becomes Pope, propelling him, his two Machiavellian sons, Cesare and Juan, and his scandalously beautiful daughter, Lucrezia, to become the most powerful and influential family of the Italian Renaissance.

About the Label Design
The Borgias wine label design combines the elements of tradition, simplicity and elegance. Created by emerging graphic designer Elliot Cohen, the inspiration for the labels was the Borgia family crest. The bull symbolized the power of the Borgia family in Italy
