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

Compact and dense nose with cherries in alcohol. Salty with hints of black olive and brine. Touches reminiscent of slate and stone. Final blow in the nose with nuances of sweet and bitter taste, and touch of thyme Cedrino. Enveloping the palate with elegance and power end tannins and final round of fresh almonds.

Critical Acclaim

"Everything comes together in spectacular style in the 2005 Nerosanlore, Gulfi’s most extravagant Nero d’Avola. This is another large-scaled offering, yet all of the elements of a great wine are present. Beautifully delineated aromatics meld into deep layers of dark fruit, violets, chocolate, spices and minerals. A gorgeous, seamless wine, the Nerosanlore boasts sensational purity in an utterly compelling style. It is not to be missed. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2022. "

Sicily was at one time more quantity focused than quality, and while it's still producing a great deal of wine, the quality coming out is much better. With poor soil (great for grapes), warm sunshine, little...
