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

Color: Deep garnet red

Aroma: The varietal notes of the Sangiovese and the Merlot complement each other very well in an inviting, ample and intense bouquet: Plums and cherries, blue and black berries, raspberries and cranberries. The long ageing period in oak leaves pleasant ethereal and slightly balsamic sensations in the wine and the finish is characterised by scents of nutmeg, rosemary and tobacco.

Tasting profile: The wine is full-bodied. In spite of its massive structure, this wine is not aggressive on the palate. The tannins are pleasantly sweet and the fruity notes give a very nice, round quality to the taste. The aromatic persistence is very long and characterised by sensations of plain chocolate and pot pourri.

Critical Acclaim

""This is very seductive, with deep, almost impenetrable, concentration and lively notes of black currant, spice, leather, smoke and granite. It exhibits a plush, sophisticated style and a broad, meaty mouthfeel. It has firm, chewy tannins and a thick, dense texture." "

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...
