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

Brancaia Chianti Classico is made of Sangiovese grapes sourced from the estates Poppi and Brancaia. This wine wants to fully exploit the Sangiovese grape and thereby provides the wine lover with an outstanding wine from this terroir typical vine.

Grilled meat, roast or braised beef or veal, stewed dishes, grilled fish, pasta dishes with tasty sauces.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2007 Chianti Classico is a fat, opulent Chianti loaded with perfumed, juicy fruit. The wine blossoms on the palate with tons of generosity and an undeniably appealing, sexy personality. The French oak is just a touch dominant at this stage, but another year or so in bottle should help the wine come together nicely. Alternatively, opening the bottle an hour or so in advance will help as well. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2017."
