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%.
The estates classic barolo is ruby red in color. It has aromas of plums and berries with hints of meat. Full-bodied with soft, round tannins and a long, long finish.
"Smooth and rich, featuring cherry, raspberry, licorice and tobacco notes. Offers a dense tapestry of fruit and spice, balanced with a solid structure. The finish rings long and spicy, with a lingering freshness. Best from 2015 through 2032."
"Loads of ripe strawberry aromas, with plum undertones. Hints of wood. Full and silky, with chewy tannins but juicy and fruity. Fruit coated backbone here. Yummy. Why wait?
"Expressive aromas of plum, spices, game, fresh rose and underbrush. Spicy, supple and juicy, with nicely integrated acidity freshening the red cherry flavor. A ripe and showy 2007 without the nuance or energy of the terrific 2008 version. This distinctly warm-year Barolo is quite satisfying already."

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
