Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 14.8%

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

Deep, dark ruby red with thin violet tinges on the edges. Strong bouquet of baked fruit, plums and cherries, which provide the fruit flavors on the palate and are accompanied with attractive hints of coffee and cocoa. Excellent balance between supporting acidity and soft tannins that melt into an intriguing softness. Imposing structure and good alcoholic level gives this Amarone an attractively long finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Pretty blueberry and cherry aromas on the nose, with lovely intensity. Full-bodied, round and juicy, with loads of fruit and a soft, carressing palate. Long palate. So good now. Drink now through 2018. 35,000 cases made."
91 Points

"The 2006 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Costasera is a beautiful version of this wine. The medium-bodied 2006 Costasera offers up an attractive array of ripe red cherries, flowers, spices and sweet herbs, with lovely balance and tons of polish. Tar, smoke and licorice linger on the close. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2018. "
90 Points

"Amarone Costasera is the perfect choice for those who are not already familiar with this unique category of Italian wine. The wine is extremely balanced and well integrated with elegant tones of ripe berry fruit and spice. it also promises to pair with beef, lamb or pork. "
