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

As is the custom with all noble lineages, elements of more popular extraction have freshened its bloodline: in this case, a tad of the local colorino grape. With its elegant bearing, a character that is fierce and proud, yet frank and open hearted at the same time, Poggio Rosso, like every Renaissance knight, is the equal of every encounter.

Critical Acclaim

"A very structured and powerful Chianti Classico, with masses of fruit and chewy, polished tannins. Yet shows class and a deft hand in winemaking. Best after 2011. 1,585 cases made."
93 Points

"The estate’s 2006 Chianti Classico Riserva Poggio Rosso (Sangiovese, Colorino) is wonderfully alive in this vintage, with layers of dark fruit, sweet tobacco, leather and spices that swirl around in the glass beautifully. There is more than enough depth and vibrancy to the fruit to make me think the Poggio Rosso will drink well for a number of years. It is another highly promising wine from San Felice. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2026.

What a joy it is to taste these new releases from San Felice. Quite simply, these are the finest wines I have tasted from the estate in many a year. San Felice is one of the most beautiful properties in all of Tuscany. It’s nice to see quality on the rise."

"Deep red. The intense violet aroma reminded me of colorino, but sangiovese notes of red cherry, licorice, minerals and underbrush emerge slowly with air. Fresh, pretty and satisfying, with flavors similar to the aromas. Finishes dense and long, with big, peppery tannins. This very impressive wine can only improve with a few more years of bottle aging.

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...
