Alcohol By Volume: 13.5%

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

Full, fruity aromas, with soft red fruit notes and a hint of balsam arriving late on the nose. Round and flavorful, soft and caressing, with a good level of alcohol and soft tannins. Delightful now, but can be cellared for at least 2-3 years.

Blend: Nero d'Avola, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot

Learn About Cristo di Campobello Map ItMap It

In Baglio del Cristo di Campobello: thirty hectares of vineyards of the land of the Sicily of Agrigento; a one and only organism of ten micro-areas, a unified possession of fifty hectares of land at Campobello di Licata. A deep terrain, limestone and chalk, on hills ranging from 230 to 270 meters above sea-level and at 8,000 meters from the coast.

Some 5,000 vines per hectare: all patriarchal firstborn of our Motherland, each and every one hand-harvested into small crates. High lineage of Agrigento, day after day, nurtured.

With poor soil (great for grapes), warm sunshine, little...
