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

A venerable Chianti showing rich fruit and lively aromatics. 80% Sangiovese is complemented by 20% Merlot and careful oak aging. Age-worthy, but can be enjoyed now with roasted meats and bean dishes.

Dense ruby red in color. The nose is fruity and dense with the scents of rich red berries, spice and toasted notes. Well-knit structure and smooth on the palate. Pitch perfect balance of tannins and acidity.

Critical Acclaim

"Plum and blackberry aromas lead to a full body, with soft, silky tannins and a ripe fruit, almost raisin undertone on the finish. Generous and rich. Chewy. Best after 2009. 1,000 cases made."

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...
