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

PrimaVoce, a term for the leading voice in an opera company, is an "aria" of both power and beauty. Produced from low yielding, meticulously farmed vineyards in the Chianti Classico region of Tuscany, the wine is supple, rich and complex, offering a multi-layered sensory experience. From its opening note to its grand finale, PrimaVoce is truly a symphony in the glass!

The 2006 PrimaVoce is dominated by rose petals, with hints of clove and spices on the nose. On the palate, there is a jammy fruit explosion of sweet plums with a tangy pomegranate and cranberry undertone. Big, velvety tannins fill the mouth and lead to a long finish filled with chocolate, tobacco and lingering hints of nutmeg and cinnamon. Pair with Olives, Panzanella, Aged Pecorino, and Salumi.

Blend: 65% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Sangiovese, 5% Cabernet France, 2% Syrah.
