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

Santa Margherita is renowned for its elegant and authentic Italian style. This wine is made with grapes from its vineyards in the heart of Tuscany's Chianti Classico region and is a blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot grapes. The additional aging time required to be a Riserva produces softer tannins and a more mature finish.

The color is deep and dense ruby red, with aromas of very ripe black cherries and plums, then floral hints of gladiolus. The palate exudes initial fruits and spices that shift gradually into fruits and herbal notes.

Critical Acclaim

"Santa Margherita (of Pinot Grigio fame) has crafted an elegant Chianti Classico Riserva that offers bright berry nuances followed by hints of blue flowers, cola and moist earth. This is not an overextracted or overly dense wine, instead it makes an easy companion to most foods from pasta to meat."

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...
