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 has a unique fragrance, powered by fresh acidity and supported by fragrances typical of moscato. The flavors are sweet and honeyed. The wine has a nice yellow color, with green tints and a lively evanescent foam and intense, aromatic scents that release, along with scents of fresh fruit, grapes and peaches. The flavor is sweet, round, stimulating and never cloying.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2010 Moscato d’Asti Sourgal is Perrone’s rounder, creamier Moscato, but that is in relative terms, as the Sourgal comes across as seriously intense when tasted next to its peers. White peaches, spices, jasmine and pears are some of the many notes that flow in this striking, fabulous Moscato. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2103. "
