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 color

Nose: Vinous, elegant, characteristic ripe fruit aroma, black pepper, cloves

Warm, round, quite soft, medium-bodied, numerous and soft tannins, almond note in the aftertaste

Critical Acclaim

"The 2006 Langhe Freisa Bricco Boschis is a remarkably harmonious, generous wine that seems to speak more about this blessed hillside Castiglione Falletto vineyard (also the source of the estate's top Barolo) than the Freisa. The estate's Freisa displays tons of richness and complexity, particularly at this level. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2012. Year after year Cavallotto crafts some of the most delicious value-priced wines in Piedmont. "
90 Points

"Opaque purple-ruby. Initially closed nose brightens up with air to show a primary black cherry aroma nicely lifted by a touch of violet. Creamy and soft, this has above-average concentration and length for the variety. The juicy finish features polished tannins and a saline kick."

Nebbiolo(neh-bee-OH-low) The King of Piedmont Nebbiolo is the key grape in the wines of Barolo and Barbaresco. It is not the most planted variety, but it does make the most distinctive and age-worthy wines. Native to Piedmont, Nebbiolo is a bit of a soil snob - it's finicky about where it grows and has long been the honored red grape of Northern Italy...
