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 in color, red fruits on the nose blend with those of blacks and vanilla with hints of coffee and chocolate. In the mouth it is immediately obvious the great structure, but the delicacy of refined tannins make it velvety and harmonious. A wine with a great finish that suggests the extremely long life it will have.

Pair with red meat roasts and stews, poultry, game and red sauces.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2007 Trenta Vendemmie was made to celebrate Castellare’s 30th harvest. It is a blend of Sangioveto, Malvasia Nera, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, essentially equal parts of the three flagships, Sodi di San Niccolo, Poggio ai Merli and Coniale. Dark cherries, plums, mocha, espresso and licorice meld together beautifully in this harmonious, resonant wine. The opulence of the vintage comes through in spades as this voluptuous wine opens up in the glass. This is yet another striking wine from Castellare. Like so many 2007s, there is plenty of early appeal. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2027. "
