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 and almost impenetrable red. Bouquet ethereal and wide, refined and alluring, with noble olfactory sensations (leather and tobacco). Palate full and with body and of extraordinary structure; compound and silky tannins; of great harmony and surprising softness.

Critical Acclaim

"This blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot shows dark chocolate aromas, with notes of blackberry, cherry, spice, leather, chocolate and crushed clove. It is smooth and rich on the finish, with a blast of creamy mocha."
