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: 13.5%

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

Brillant ruby red in hue. The nose unfolds to reveal aromas of small fresh berries and a trace of maraschino cherry, melded with hints of blackberries and black cherries and followed by a hint of vanilla. It is a very fragrant wine of good intensity, warm and supple, with a medium-structure and balanced tannins. On the palate, the wine is suitably dry and sinewy, yet fresh with a persistent aromatic finish.

It naturally accompanies typical Tuscan cuisine with its bold, authentic flavors, such as pasta and risottos made with mushrooms or truffles, pork, grilled meats and medium-flavored cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

"Darker tones of black cherry, black currant and violet mark this dense yet fruity red, which is firmly structured, lingering with a tobacco note."
90 Points

"The estate's 2010 Rosso di Montalcino is striking in this vintage. Savory herbs, licorice, tobacco and mint are woven together in a wine that stands out for its exceptional balance and polish."

Learn About Sangiovese

Sangiovese (SAHN-gee-oh-VAY-zee) Blood of Jove (literally translated) The principal grape of Chianti - in fact, the principle grape of all of Tuscany - has had its ups and downs. For a stint in the 70s and 80s, wines labeled Chianti contained cheap red wine packaged in a straw casked bottle, most popular for the candle holder it would become. But no more. Sangiovese re...
