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

Clear, bright, purple red with clearer tannic nuances around the glass edge. Aromas are persistent, fragrant and wide open exalting the fruit of the wine. It is also rounded by evident perception of strawberry and raspberry, typical in this wine. Flavors are also persistent with the classic light tannin astringency of Nebbiolo, very well rounded by the wood aromas. Lovely finish, persistent and stimulating.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2009 Langhe Nebbiolo is surprisingly dense and muscular. Sweet red cherries, flowers and licorice come to life in the glass. Despite the wine's richness, it also possesses plenty of Nebbiolo grip on the finish. The dense, ripe style is very nicely balanced here. This is a jewel of a wine."
92 Points

"Good medium red. Musky, slightly reduced aromas of wild strawberry, plum, coffee and rose; there's something a bit pinot-like here. Then plump and sweet but not heavy, with a silky texture to its red raspberry flavors. Big and chewy on the back end, finishing with serious tannins and lingering sweetness. Lovely accessible nebbiolo."

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...
