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

Garnet red color, clear and lively. The aromas are ethereal and persistent with floral and fruity notes. The taste dry, savory and soft, but full with lasting persistence due to the tannins.

Critical Acclaim

"Dried flowers and plum follow through to a full-bodied palate, with silky tannins and a medium finish. Pretty and balanced. Refined for the vintage. Not jammy or too concentrated."
90 Points

"The 2003 Barolo Cannubi reveals lovely texture and depth in its fruit, along with tobacco, tar, scorched earth and leather notes that emerge with air. The 2003 is less fresh and aromatic than is normally the case, and this doesn’t look to be an especially long-lived wine. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2015."

Learn About Nebbiolo

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...
