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 and lively, dark red color with a purple rim. Fresh and direct, with ripe fruit aromas combined with different toasted hints. Once in the glass red fruit aromas come through. On the palate, the wine is silky and lingering. The wine reflects the warm climate in which the vines are grown, with an interesting full-bodied, lingering sensations but with a remarkable concentration.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2009 Pago Florentino is more refined on the nose, the oak now more enmeshed with brambly black fruit as well as hints of cedar and mint. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, impressive focus and plenty of taut primal black fruit. It is tightly wound at the moment, but it should repay a couple of years in the cellar, possibly more. Good potential – this is a classy number."
