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 an intense garnet red, limpid and dense. On the nose it is spicy with fruity notes and fine hints of dried flowers and rose petals. On the palate it has a warm tannic mouthfeel, with well-integrated spicy notes.

Perfect with beef, braised meats, game and mature cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

"Ferrando’s 2007 Carema Etichetta Bianca doesn’t even need to be tasted, the bouquet alone is extraordinary. Sweet rose petals, tar, licorice and star anise are just some of the nuances that waft from the glass in this striking Nebbiolo. The tannins are firm, yet silky, but nevertheless are a sure sign this is a wine from one of Piedmont’s northerly appellations. As it sits in the glass the wine acquires more depth in a virtuosic display of class and elegance. This is an immensely pleasurable bottle of wine that can be enjoyed now or cellared. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2027."

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.
