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, deep cherry-pink color.

The nose is fruity, with emphatic fragrances of ripecherry and wild strawberry.

The scented fruit returns on the mid-palate, and the long-lingering finish shows flavourful, with a minerally edge.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2011 Rosato is striking. Layers of fruit caress the palate in this generous, impeccable and totally beautiful Rosato. Far from easygoing, the Rosato is a serious wine with impeccable balance and no hard edges. This is a great showing from Ama. The Rosato is Sangiovese with a dash of Merlot."
