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

Deep ruby red, recalls plums and red cherries on the nose, followed by balsamic and salty notes on a background of ripe liquorice. With eloquent and clean tannins in the mouth, it comes across as full and vigorous, with a long and intense finish.

Critical Acclaim

"The estate's 2008 Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Jorio is a big, rustic wine loaded with dark fruit, herbs and new leather, all supported by firm tannins. The Jorio is a touch rustic, but has more than enough depth and sheer character to compensate for some of its shortcomings. I have a slight preference for the 2008 over the 2009 here. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2020. "
