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

Dense, concentrated wild cherry fruit leads into aromatic impressions of violet, spice, walnut and tea in this full-bodied, single-vineyard wine of firm yet sweetly ripe tannic presence and firm, slightly austere acidic underpinning. The wine's underlying structure promises potential for extended aging.

Critical Acclaim

"This impressive vineyard designate Brunello delivers buoyant tones of cherry cola, mesquite and balsam notes. There’s a direct and immediate nature to the aromas, followed by bright acidity and silky tannins that leave a lasting impression. This is a very beautiful wine that would pair with meats and oven-roasted pasta dishes."
93 Points

"Emerges from the glass with a soft, expansive core of fruit, caressing the palate with dark red fruit, sweet spices and flowers. The wine's inner perfume becomes more expressive with air, yet this too looks to be a Brunello best suited to mid-term drinking. In 2005 the Manachiara isn't quite the powerhouse it is in most vintages, but it compensates for that with its beautiful sense of harmony."
91 Points

"Bright red with a hint of brick. Drop-dead gorgeous nose offers a smorgasbord of pristine, perfumed sangiovese aromas: redcurrant, red cherry, licorice, black tea leaf and minerals. Then quite juicy in the mouth, with redcurrant, tobacco and herb flavors nicely firmed by sound acidity. Finishes with fairly sweet, fine tannins and very good length. A classic Manachiara and a very accurate rendition of the 2005 style of Brunello: perfumed rather than powerful."

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...
