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

A true Barbera specialist, the family making this lush red wines prides themselves on their generations worth of experience cultivating their pristine vineyards in the heart of Piedmont in Northwestern Italy, in the shadow of Mont Blanc. With an intense purple hue, this wine bursts with a juicy, mouthwatering bouquet of plum and cherry with hints of baking spice. Silky on the palate, finishing in ripe, velvety, sweet fruits, this wine will pair perfectly with any meal, from antipasti, to pizza, to pasta, to grilled meats. A rich, satisfying glass sure to please any crowd, you'll be hard pressed to drink just one glass!

Critical Acclaim

"This shows fine depth and balance, revealing black cherry and blackberry notes on a supple texture. Hints of citrus and bitter almond appear on the lingering finish. Smart Buy."

This Barbera is a fantastic wine at a great buy. As good as wines twice the price. My opinion of this wine is just as the Winemaker's notes say. Bought two to taste, buying another case.
