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 Morellino di Scansano "Vigne del Passero" is fresh and makes for a casual, yet sophisticated experience and is an ideal every day wine. Also ruby red in color, its bouquet features cherries, roses, earth and a pinch of herbs that blend harmoniously together to become a pleasing combination to the most discerning palate.

Critical Acclaim

"Intense aromas of blackberries, black cherries and chocolate and mouthful of seductive red fruit, spice, firm tannin and high acidity. Sangiovese from Maremma at its best. "
