Style: Light & Fruity

Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 13.5%

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

The intense violet ruby colour invites you to discover the aromas of this Montepulciano d'bruzzo that does not engage in any contact with oak. The obvious varietal aromas remember red fruit, sour black cherry with hints of wild berry. It has a great structure and concentration, wonderfully sustained from an obvious acidity. The tannins are striking and perfectly mature giving this wine a surprisingly round taste.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2009 Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Vigne Nuove is a fresh, unoaked red with beautifully plump, juicy red fruit that layers nicely into a delicate, feminine finish. Floral notes add lift and freshness. This is a steal for the money. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2013. "
