Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 12.5%

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

Wine is ruby red in color. The aromas are of intense wild fruits, berries, woodland leaves and elegant floral notes. On the palate, Greo leaves a delightful earthy, spicy and persistent flavor of wild blackberries. Harmonious and very soft lingering finish.

Style: Smooth & Supple
Very nice simple red blend that can be enjoyed with food or by itself. Smooth and well balanced, almost elegant. Was unaware of this Tuscan DOC before trying this.
