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

The color is a deep ruby red with garnet. The aroma: red fruits, plum, peach, pepper , vanilla, tobacco, red fruits, blackberry. The flavour is well structured, moderate acidity, sapidity, persistent pleasantly tannic finish.

Serve with ripe cheese, meat dishes.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2007 Roero Bric Valdiana Monta emerges from the glass with gorgeous dark red fruit, minerals, licorice, violets and French oak. This sleek, refined Roero impresses for its exceptional balance and fabulous pedigree. With time in the glass, the wine grows in depth and overall expressiveness. The tannins are a touch firm, but the Valdiana should be even better with another year or two of bottle age. This is a fabulous effort from Almondo. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2019."
92 Points

"Deep red. Explosive aromas of lavender, cinnamon, nutmeg, raspberry and Oriental spices: this reminded me of Ruche or Brachetto. Rich and ripe, but with good acidity balancing the sweet, syrupy flavors of plum, blackberry and chocolate. Finishes with substantial chewy, mounting tannins that are just this side of astringent."

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.
