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 wine is the typical red garnet color of a wine produced from Nebbiolo grapes. The bouquet is elegant with hints of red mature fruits, leather, tobacco and sensations of oak, while on the palate the powerful structure emerges with a long, persistent finish. It is a long-tasting wine.

Serve with red meats or ripe, strong cheeses. It is excellent also after meal.

Critical Acclaim

"The estate’s 2006 Barolo is a delicate, ethereal wine best suited to drinking over the next few years. Crushed flowers, anise and licorice add layers of complexity and nuance to the bright red fruit. This gracious, entry-level Barolo is a terrific effort from Boroli. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2016. "
