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

This Brunello di Montalcino is ruby red with garnet overtones and the nose is broad and determined with typical varietal aromas. In the mouth it is harmonious and persistent. This is Castiglion del Bosco's most representative example of the Sangiovese grape's perfect symbiosis with the territory of Montalcino. The richness of the "galestro" stone in the soil gives the wine its unique aroma, complexity and structure.

Critical Acclaim

"Smoke and dark fruit, with a touch of drying mineral and softer background tones of chocolate and rum cake. There's a very polished, dry feel to this wine. The oak notes are still integrating, and the finish is tight and firm."
92 Points

"Aromas and flavors of plums, lemon rind and hints of pie crust. Full and velvety, with lovely fruit and a clean fresh finish. Juicy and fruity, yet balanced. Drink now or hold"
92 Points

"A modern style, laced with vanilla, toast, cherry and mineral flavors. Compact right now, with moderate length, but also juicy acidity, so give this some time."
91 Points

"The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino sweeps across the palate with layers of soft, textured fruit. Sweet red cherries, licorice, leather, flowers and tobacco are all woven together nicely. The 2007 should be approachable pretty much upon release given its voluptuous, caressing personality."
90 Points

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...
