Alcohol By Volume Guide
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%.
Garnet-red in color with ruby reflections. Intense perfume with clean scent of roses, vanilla, licorice, spices and toasted oak. Gentle notes of absinth. The flavor is full and elegant, goodbodied and austere with recurring olfactory sensations. The spicy note and the hints of wood blend perfectly. The Barolo Cannubi reaches its maturity after 6 years from the harvest and can be enjoyed
throughout its life between 6 and 25 years.
"Big, bright cherry and plum fruit graces this red, which starts out open and round, only to tighten up with dense, dusty tannins on the finish. There's plenty of fruit, but needs time. Best from 2015 through 2028."
"The 2006 Barolo Cannubi is quite a bit firmer than the 2007, but also shows more typicity with regards to vintage and site. This is a decidedly mid-weight, gracious Barolo that floats on the palate with expressive red fruit, licorice, spices and anise, all supported by the firm, insistent tannins of the year. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026."

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
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...
