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 purple-red wine opens with intense aromas of blackberry, blackcurrant and cherries. It is rich and full-bodied on the palate, with soft flavors that echo the fruity aromas. This wine is well-balanced with a pleasing finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Dried flowers and dried mushrooms with hints of berries on the nose, follows through to a full body, with silky and polished tannins and a nutmeg, milk chocolate and berry aftertaste. Better after 2014."
92 Points

"The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino Cantine Leonardo is an inviting wine graced with open, radiant fruit and soft, engaging personality. Sweet spices and vanilla add complexity on the rich, creamy finish. This is an excellent choice for near-term drinking. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2020."
91 Points

"Brunello Cantine Leonardo opens with loads of cinnamon and nutmeg with background tones of clove, earth, pressed violet and syrupy cassis. The wine closes with a long, spicy fade and a balanced touch of cleansing acidity."
