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

The wine has a ruby red color with a slight hint of orange. It is ample and intense, with hints of ripe fruit. Mellow and velvety, it is very harmonic, full-bodied and with just the right tannic content and hints of almonds.

Ideal with savory foods, starters, game and cheese.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2007 Aglianico Contado is a big, generous wine that flows from the glass with tons of ripe fruit. Medium to full in body, the Contado possesses outstanding definition and loads of class. This is another remarkable wine loaded with character and personality. The flavor profile and powerful close offer a unique expression of Aglianico. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2014. "
