Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 14.0%

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

Deep red in color. Very clean, opulent aromas, with notes of ripe red fruits evolving into delicate spice and floral perfumes. Powerful and velvety in flavor with a fleshy and sustained finish and refined tannins.

Critical Acclaim

"Put this beautiful Brunello in your cellar for at least 10–15 more years. Rennina opens with bold oak and cherry tones (that need more time to integrate), followed by plump, rich blackberry flavors, chocolate, leather and dark spice. It's a wine characterized by impressive density and opulence."
95 Points

"The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino Rennina flows across the palate with layers of sensual, perfumed fruit. Soft, gracious and impeccably balanced, the 2007 Rennina impresses for its overall harmony and sense of grace. Sweet red berries, crushed flowers and spices wrap around the feminine finish. This is a very pretty not to mention hugely appealing wine from Pieve Santa Restituta. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2027."
94 Points

"Moderately saturated medium red. Aromas of dark cherry, Indian spices, cocoa powder and licorice. Sweet, plush and seamless, with surprisingly open-knit flavors of cherry, plum and spices. This wonderfully lush, silky Brunello finishes smooth, sweet and very long, with noble tannins and very good lift."
94 Points

"The nose is wonderful, with rose petals and dark fruits and hints of sandalwood. Full-bodied, with super silky tannins and a chewy finish. Give this until 2015 to soften and show you what it really has. "
94 Points

"A rich, beefy style, with sweet spices accenting cherry, leather and tobacco flavors. Dense and firm, with sweet fruit matching the tannins on the long finish. Best from 2014 through 2028. 200 cases imported. "

Learn About Sangiovese

Sangiovese (SAHN-gee-oh-VAY-zee) Blood of Jove (literally translated) The principal grape of Chianti - in fact, the principle grape of all of Tuscany - has had its ups and downs. 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...
