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

100% Aglianico di Taurasi.

Intense bouquet of wild fruits underscored by vanilla and spice notes.

Full-bodied and balanced, with supple tannins and dark fruit flavors.

Well-matched with red meat entrées, fish steaks and hearty casseroles.

Critical Acclaim

"This vineyard-designate Taurasi Riserva is probably one of the biggest, boldest wines produced in Italy. It opens with an inky black color and intense aromas of black fruit, toast, spice, espresso bean and bitter black chocolate. The jackhammer tannins are steady and firm, and there's a long trail of prune and black fruit on the finish. Cellar Selection."
94 Points

"This powerful red remains graceful, with bright acidity driving the ripe kirsch, macerated blackberry, vanilla, wild herb and licorice notes. Silky tannins frame all of this, but the fruit and spice notes linger on the long finish. Drink now through 2020. 1,000 cases made."
