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%.
Straw yellow color. Intense, persistent, appealing nose of white peach, apricots and sweet almonds on a mineral background melding into elegant, mellow complexity. Rich and structured palate, fresh and characterful yet never aggressive, with abundant gout de terroir.
"The 2010 Greco di Tufo is rich, round and harmonious. Layers of ripe, generous fruit are woven into a textured fabric laced with floral aromatics and clean, saline notes that add freshness. This is another brilliant, beautifully balanced white from Villa Matilde. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2014."
The Wine Advocate
