Alcohol By Volume: 13.5%

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

Intense aromas of blackberries, cassis, cedar and a hint of leather are followed by a full-bodied, rich palate with very refined tannins. Coniale is an excellent expression of Cabernet Sauvignon from Tuscany.

Ideal with roasted meats and aged cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2007 Coniale, the estate's Cabernet Sauvignon, is, oddly enough, a more accessible wine than the Merlot. Sweet, silky tannins support a core of expressive red fruit, flowers and spices. This is a pretty, understated wine that makes up for some lack of varietal typicity with its terrific balance and undeniably attractive personality."
93 Points

"Coniale is a pure expression of Cabernet Sauvignon, bearing classy Tuscan characteristics of blackberry, dried Mediterranean brush, rosemary, chocolate, leather and tobacco, with a touch of black olive in the background. The mouthfeel is rich, persistent and soft."

Really great Super Tuscan cab. Very expressive of the terroir at Castellare (you should visit!) -- you can taste the dust and cedars. Could get seriously in debt buying and drinking this.

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
