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: 13.5%

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

Intense ruby red with deep garnet hues; the bouquet is intense and ethereal with aromas ranging from dark fruit and berries to chocolate, coffee, leather, liquorice and balsamic notes; silky and elegant, potent yet balanced and characterised by sweet tannins.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino is an open, inviting wine laced with red berries, flowers and sweet French oak. This shows lovely inner perfume and a rich, textured personality that makes it an excellent choice for drinking over the near-term. Sweet floral notes intermingle with spices and vanillin from the oak on the generous finish. This is one of the more engaging, accessible wines of the vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022."
90 Points

"Good medium red. Old-style aromas of sour cherry and chestnut with a hint of minerals. Juicy, youthful and light on its feet, with lovely definition and cut to its cherry and floral flavors. Not an extrovert or particularly sweet but quite insinuating and fresh. Finishes with lovely floral persistence and firm tannins supported by fruit."

Learn About Sangiovese

Sangiovese (SAHN-gee-oh-VAY-zee) Blood of Jove (literally translated) The principal grape of Chianti - in fact, the principle grape of all of Tuscany - has had its ups and downs. For a stint in the 70s and 80s, wines labeled Chianti contained cheap red wine packaged in a straw casked bottle, most popular for the candle holder it would become. But no more. Sangiovese re...
