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

Rosso di Montalcino is deep ruby red with purple reflections. It displays fresh, intense aromas of ripe fruit infused with spice from the oak. It is full-bodied and fruit forward, structured by supple tannins. Serve slightly cooler than room temperature. Well-matched with veal, pork and poultry dishes, as well as duck and goose.

Critical Acclaim

"Plenty of cherry, strawberry and spice flavors here, backed by a vibrant structure. Tea leaf and tobacco accents resonate on the firm finish. Best from 2012 through 2020. 15,800 cases made."

For a stint in the 70s and 80s, wines labeled Chianti contained cheap red wine packaged in a straw casked bottle, most popular for the candle holder it would become. But no more. Sangiovese re...
