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

Garnet, tending toward brick-red with age. Intense aroma of violets. Full-bodied, warm and dry, mellowing with age.

The wine's "Nobile" appellation may well come from its "noble" grape components. Some historians, however, hypothesize that the name comes from the 17th century poet Francesco Redi, who described Vino Nobile di Montepulciano as "the king of all wines."

Cecchi Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is particularly noteworthy for its robustness.  e wine's prestige is building in world markets and demonstrating just how brilliant Tuscan reds can be. Traditional fermentation of select grapes is followed by at least 2 years of aging before release.

Perfect with hearty stews, roasts and casseroles.

Critical Acclaim

"A suave, dark red, boasting black cherry, plum, tobacco and spice flavors. Harmonious and approachable now, with well-integrated, dusty tannins and a long finish. Drink now through 2018"

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...
