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

Lively, ruby-red color, tending to garnet with age. On the nose, delicate aromas of violet and iris. On the palate, the wine is rich and elegant, with black-cherry and tobacco flavors with supple tannins and nice acidity on the finish.

Pairs well with grilled meats, roasts, cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

"A Chianti Classico with firm tannins and plenty of juicy fruit. Full-bodied, meaty, long and intense."
91 Points

"Like biting into a fresh cherry, this is ripe and sweet, with accents of spice, leather and earth. Stays balanced and focused through the lingering finish. Drink now through 2020."
90 Points

"The 2010 Chianti Classico Riserva Villa Cerna is a meat-friendly and darkly concentrated wine with sour cherry, espresso and toasted almond. The wine is tight and linear with a clear tannic vein at the back. There's a good amount of growing room ahead. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2022. "
