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

Brilliant ruby red medium. Intense and persistent, fruity, reminiscent of raspberries, plum, sour black cherry, cherry jam. Balanced, harmonius, pleasently tannic with persistent aftertaste.

Critical Acclaim

"Bright medium red. Lovely perfumed aromas of sage, rosemary and flowers. Intensely flavored and impeccably balanced, offering captivating floral lift to its red fruit and wild herb flavors. Finishes firmly tannic and long. Serve this wine in a big Barbaresco glass for maximum effect."
90 Points

"Gresy's 2012 Langhe Nebbiolo Martinenga is gorgeous. Raspberry, strawberry, mint and floral notes waft from the glass in a fresh, floral Nebbiolo to drink now and over the next few years. A long, polished finish rounds out this feminine, gracious Nebbiolo. All the hallmarks of the house style are very much evident in the glass."

It is not the most planted variety, but it does make the most distinctive and age-worthy wines.
