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%.

In the mouth, it is pleasantly velvety, rich, intense and crispy.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2009 Regaleali Bianco, a blend of Grecanico, Inzolia and Cararratto, is a delicious entry-level Sicilian white. A well-articulated bouquet melds into peaches, spices and mint in this perfumed, crisp wine. The Regaleali Bianco is a reliably fabulous value, as it is again in 2009. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2014. "

With poor soil (great for grapes), warm sunshine, little...
