Wine Style Guide

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
Alcohol By Volume: 14.5%
Alcohol By Volume Guide
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%.
Deep, bright, ruby red in color. The nose is intense with cherries, blueberries, chocolate and spicy oak. On the palate there is a good mouthful of fruit and spicy flavors supported by silky tannins. Concentrated yet elegant, with a medium to long finish.
"From Marchese Lodovico Antinori's
beautiful wine estate in Bibbona, this boasts the
heritage of the great super Tuscan family to which it belongs.
The blend is Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon,
Merlot and Petit Verdot, and the overall effect is
simply gorgeous. Richness, generosity and persistence
characterize the mouthfeel, and the bouquet is driven
by aromas of red cherry, chocolate and spice. Drink after
2015. Cellar Selection."
"Blackberry and fresh herbs on the nose follow through to a full body, with velvety tannins and raisin, berries and spices on the finish. A ripe, supercharged style. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Best after 2012. 6,800 cases made."
"The flagship 2007 Il Pino di Biserno is a blend of 35% Cabernet Franc, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot. Warm notes of mocha, espresso and grilled herbs emerge from the glass, followed by beautifully ripe, succulent fruit. Sweet and expansive on the palate, the wine reveals gorgeous clarity and precision, with plenty of Maremma character. The Pino di Biserno loses a little intensity on the finish, but it is otherwise a very fine effort. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2019. "
