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% Montepulciano. The vineyards enjoy SE, S, SW and NW exposures, with slightly lower density and a crop yield of 2.4 tons per acre. Aged in oak barriques and barrels (225 liters and 50 hl. respectively) for a year, then bottle-aged at least a further year. This fleshy, complex, beautifully structured red packs amazing impact in flavor, and fruit. Intense ruby in color, the bouquet shows mellow, earthy notes and extraordinary aromas of black cherries, raisins and licorice, confirmed on the palate. Unfiltered.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2006 Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Feuduccio is another refined offering. Sweet, silky tannins frame a core of expressive red fruit in this sleek, polished Montepulciano. Much of the grape's tendency towards rusticity has been tamed. Hints of smoke, licorice and underbrush add layers of complexity on the finish. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2016. Il Feuduccio is one of those properties one never hears much about, yet the wines rarely fail to impress. "
