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

Extraordinarily powerful and intense wine of 14-16% alcohol with a concentrated black cherry confettura (jam) fruit. Dense and super ripe, yet still well-mannered and harmonious, the Amarone finishes rich and dry with firm tannins allowing lengthy bottle development. Le Ragose is a benchmark of the type.

Critical Acclaim

"Spicy and jammed with rich blackberry fruit and chocolate-vanilla tones;ripe but not too sweet; intense and creamy with a seamless finish."
95 Points

"The 2004 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is a pretty, understated wine with lovely inner perfume in its sweet roses, raspberries, spices and licorice. The tannins remain fine and silky throughout, conveying an impression of elegance. The wine offers outstanding length as well as balance. The 2004 Amarone impresses for its superb drinkability and balance. Ideally this traditionally made Amarone is best enjoyed if opened an hour or two prior to serving."
