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

Intense and dark ruby red color. The nose shows very complex with hints of mint, eucalyptus, licorice and coffee followed by fruity flavors of plums, cassis, blackberries and cherries. In the taste the wine offers its whole character and elegancy. The palate presents immediately fruity flavors of fresh plums filling up the mouth. Wine of structure, fresh and mineral, in perfect harmony thanks to sweet, velvet and large tannins. A lingering and intense aromatic finish with fruity flavors of plums.

Blend: 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc

Critical Acclaim

"In terms of overall quality this is the best yet from this sea-facing estate in coastal Tuscany. The blend sees Cabernet Sauvignon enhanced by Merlot and Cabernet Franc and the overall effect is one of impressive intensity and sophistication. The finish is velvety rich and smooth."
95 Points

"Good full ruby. Intense aromas of dark berries, tomato, bay leaf and lavender. On the palate, salty and somewhat herbal nuances join flavors of blackberry, cedar and nutmeg. Slightly saline on the long, seamless finish, which hints at bell pepper and leaves an impression of alcoholic warmth. Not my style either, but this will appeal to many; it's also a much better and more serious wine than the Villa Donoratico."
