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%.
Brilliant garnet red color. The nose is fine and elegant with very ripe blue fruit (prunes, blueberry), sweet spices, and licorice. The flavors are rich, warm, soft, and clean with sweet tannins and a quite fresh, long finish.
"A wine, with intense fruit, spices and chocolate on the nose and palate. Full and balanced, with velvety and polished tannins. Gorgeous. Best after 2015.
"The 2007 Barolo Conca is a touch less aromatically compelling than the Giachini, but it makes up for that with a gorgeous, pure expression of generous, dense fruit. This south-facing vineyard is located in an amphitheater that traps heat, and that warmth comes through very nicely here, yet without being overdone. Round, silky tannins frame the exquisite finish."
The Wine Advocate
"Good deep red. Aromas of black raspberry, violet, mint, licorice and tobacco. Deep, layered and rich, with terrific concentration to its dark fruit, violet and oak flavors. A bit aggressive following the Vigna Giachini, but the wine's sheer thickness of texture is leavened by ripe acidity. Finishes with big, broad, ripe, palate-dusting tannins, considerable power and a hint of warmth."

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
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...
