Alcohol By Volume Guide
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%.
Stemming from the Nebbiolo grapes of the oldest vineyard of the Einaudi estates in Barolo. A great wine which ages well, of a brilliant garnet red with touches of amber and distinctive orange tinges which intensify with age, of an intense and persistent bouquet, of great body and full taste, austere and velvety. The tannic characteristics guarantee a long life in bottle. With time it acquires complexity as the ethereal aromas of spices, truffles and leather that substitute the fruitiness of the first years of its life.
"A lovely expression of cherry and plum marks this round, spice- and underbrush-tinged red. The sweet fruit gives way to firm tannins as this picks up power and stamina on the lingering finish. Best from 2015 through 2026. 875 cases made."
"The 2007 Barolo Terlo opens with a high-toned, aromatic bouquet that leads to silky red fruit. This is a very pretty 2007 Barolo, even if today it comes across as unusually lean and austere for the vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025."
The Wine Advocate
"Good medium red. Spicy red berries, cherry, dried rose and mint on the floral nose. Dense, concentrated and lively, with a savory quality to the red cherry, redcurrant and marzipan flavors. Offers good texture without any impression of weight. Finishes with broad, dusty tannins and very good length and grip.

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. Native to
Nebbiolo is a bit of a soil snob - it's finicky about where it grows and has
long been the honored red grape of Northern Italy...
