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 ruby red with purple hues and garnet rim; ample, complex, persistent and elegant bouquet with dark berry aromas complemented by fresh, sweet spices, underbrush, leather and tobacco; full-bodied with tightly knit, sweet tannins, soft texture, fresh balsamic acidity.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2007 Chianti Classico Riserva opens with a warm, radiant expression of fruit supported by deceptively firm structural components. Freshly cut flowers add brightness to the red fruit in this rich, polished wine. The Riserva is 85% Sangiovese, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Merlot aged predominantly in French oak barrels. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2027. "

Learn About Sangiovese

Sangiovese (SAHN-gee-oh-VAY-zee) Blood of Jove (literally translated) The principal grape of Chianti - in fact, the principle grape of all of Tuscany - has had its ups and downs. For a stint in the 70s and 80s, wines labeled Chianti contained cheap red wine packaged in a straw casked bottle, most popular for the candle holder it would become. But no more. Sangiovese re...
