Alcohol By Volume: 14.0%
Alcohol By Volume Guide
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%.
Deep ruby red in color, with an intense bouquet of wild cherries, raspberries, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla and anise. It is full-bodied and well-balanced with flavors of plum, black cherry and licorice.
Enjoy with red meats, duck and hearty vegetarian dishes.
"A rich and spicy red with blueberry and chocolate character. Lots of grilled meat undertones. Full body, round and chewy tannins and flavorful finish. Slightly nutty undertones. Drink or hold."
"Dark and opulent, this has a modern touch, with soft oak tones that support pretty notes of black cherry, dark chocolate, spice and tobacco. The mouthfeel is rich, toasted and delicious, with a long, dry finish."
"A ripe, full-bodied red, with layers of forest floor and ash to the sun-dried blackberry and plum skin fruit character. Full tannins frame the long finish of olive paste and spice. Best from 2014 through 2020."
Earth & Spicy
If you enjoy Aglianico, you may appreciate Taurasi which takes this grape to a level. Big, smokey. Like a good Cuban cigar. Not to my wife's taste, but I like it alot
