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

Barolo Le Vigne is often a dark and impenetrable wine in its youth, where the tannins and structure from the Monforte vineyard sites make the wine less approachable. With proper cellaring, this wine reveals more classic Barolo aspects of black cherries, tar, violets and roses. This wine can outlive the Cannubi Boschis bottling in great years: Le Vigne shows more tannins than its brother and possesses amazing freshness and length.

Critical Acclaim

"Sandrone has been performing at a superstar level since the 1982 vintage, but in 1993 he has significantly more competition from - his best friends. Nevertheless, his 1993s are near the top of the qualitative pyramid for the 1993 vintage. More precocious and exotic than the Barolo Cannubi, Sandrone's 1993 Barolo Le Vigne is a blend of five separate parcels. It boasts a dark ruby color, a Pomerol-like sweet, chocolatey, coffee, and jammy black-cherry-scented nose, medium to full body, a lush, soft texture, and a heady, rich finish."

Learn About Nebbiolo

Nebbiolo(neh-bee-OH-low) The King of Piedmont Nebbiolo is the key grape in the wines of Barolo and Barbaresco. It is not the most planted variety, but it does make the most distinctive and age-worthy wines. Native to Piedmont, Nebbiolo is a bit of a soil snob - it's finicky about where it grows and has long been the honored red grape of Northern Italy...
