Alcohol By Volume: 11.5%

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

Gia Frizzante is refreshingly fruity with bright effervescence and fragrant notes of passion fruit, pears, honey, and acacia flowers. It's light and elegant on the palate and should be enjoyed well chilled at 45 degrees. More than anything, this wine exudes a distinct freshness and buoyancy that pairs beautifully with desserts such as patisseries, exotic fruits, Sabayon, and apple or pear tarts. It is also delicious on its own as an aperitif and works equally well with dishes like Paella and spicy Asian cuisine.

About Gia Coppola
A third generation filmmaker, photographer, artist, impromptu (and impressive) mixologist--Gia Coppola is all of these things and much more. Shy is a word she uses to describe herself, but her accomplishments are far from shy. In 2012, after sitting on the board of directors for the family's Francis Ford Coppola Presents wine, food and resort business for more than a decade it seems fitting that Gia was inspired to create her own line of wines. Gia worked alongside Francis and the winemaking and design teams to create a wine brand that reflects her personality. The collaboration garnered three distinct wines for Gia by Gia Coppola--Frizzante Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio and Pinot Noir--crafted to be light, unpretentious and inspiring.
