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

Wine that has confirmed its elegance and harmony over the years. Always clean and fruity on the nose, full and substantial on the palate, with remarkable persistence and excellent end. Intense and deep ruby red hue with garnet highlights, indicative of a perfectly ripe fruit.

Critical Acclaim

"Years best Tuscan Reds - The color of this wine remains a youthful purple, the fruit tense and bold. It has a cool forest floor character, with conifer spice and porcini notes under the dark cherry flavor. The fruit seems to grow out of the mineral tannin, building textural amplitude and impressive length. A mouth-watering Chianti to decant for duck ragu with pappardelle. "
