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

This has an intense ruby red color, with both fruity and floral notes, from the ripe red fruit to herbs. Soft, tasty, velvety at the same time, leaving a note of sweetness and roundness typical of ripe grape with a slightly dry and astringent closure that distinguishes the Nebbiolo.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2008 Barbaresco Nubiola wafts from the glass with crushed flowers, sweet herbs, licorice and spices, all of which add complexity to the fruit. The Nubiola is deceptively medium in body. With time it fleshes out beautifully, showing terrific richness for the vintage. A firm, poised finish has the last say."
92 Points

"Nubiola is a pulpy, thickly concentrated Nebbiolo with brambly notes of forest fruit, moist earth, leather, spice and toasted hazelnut. The wine is still young, astringent and needs a few more years of cellar aging before it softens up."
91 Points

"Good deep red. Expressive aromas of redcurrant, plum, tobacco, menthol and rose. Sweet, suave and lush but in need of a bit more inner-mouth clarity of flavor. Offers a good blend of sweetness, acidity and serious, building tannins but these elements need a few more years in bottle to come into better harmony.
Rating: 91(+?)"

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. Native to Piedmont, 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...
