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

Pale yellow color. Very refined fizz, persistent and creamy. Scents of yellow fruits like peach, apricot and citrus followed by herbal hints and exotic fruit. On the palate, bright and pure. The sweet and crispy feeling are greatly integrated and leave the palate clean. Long finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Bright, pale lemon-yellow. Pure, perfumed aromas and flavors of peach, fresh apricot, mint and flowers. Sweet, rich and tactile, with complex fruit, floral and honey flavors energized by citrus zest acidity. It's hard to scrape this unflagging wine off the palate, not that you'd want to. The best examples of northwest Italy's frothy, sweet, low-alcohol sparkling wine can be habit-forming: I dare you to stop with just one glass."
