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 garnet color, with perfectly mixed floral and spicy qualities in the nose. Notes of licorice, cherries in liqueur, cacao and fresh raspberries. Rich, full-bodied and elegant on the palate.

Critical Acclaim

"Round and forward, showing cherry and strawberry flavors, this is pure and focused, with a bright structure underlining the fruit. Offers lovely balance and a lingering finish. Best from 2013 through 2027. 3,750 cases made."
93 Points

"The 2007 Barolo Monfalletto is another superb-entry-level Barolo. The essences of crushed flowers, spices, roses and tobacco come together beautifully in this mid-weight, refined Barolo. The Monfalletto shows wonderful mid-palate density and fabulous overall balance in a pure style that recalls some of the great past vintages here. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2027. "
92 Points

"Good medium red with an amber edge. Highly nuanced nose combines smoke, mocha, menthol, dried rose, camphor and cigar tobacco; at once delicate and intense. Sappy, insinuating cherry fruit is framed and intensified by surprising acidity. Chewy, classic Barolo with serious but sweet tannins. "This can be drunk with food already," says Alberto Cordero, "but most of our vintages are best at eight to ten years of age.""

Learn About Nebbiolo

Nebbiolo(neh-bee-OH-low) The King of Piedmont Nebbiolo is the key grape in the wines of Barolo and Barbaresco. It is not the most planted variety, but it does make the most distinctive and age-worthy wines. Native to Piedmont, Nebbiolo is a bit of a soil snob - it's finicky about where it grows and has long been the honored red grape of Northern Italy...
