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

Shows attractive, tropical fruit aromas. Fresh and charming palate flavors gain weight and become full on the mid-palate, where fruitiness blends with traces of honey and boiled sweets. A dry finish has a citrus twist.

Critical Acclaim

"I love the 2012 Masianco. This is a beautifully made, crisp and easy-drinking white wine with a great story to tell. The wine is mostly Pinot Grigio with some Verduzzo (an indigenous variety with thick skins) that has seen a brief appassimento. The result is a wine that crosses a slew of winemaking borders. The dried fruit component doesn’t add heaviness or sweetness. Instead, it adds just enough oomph to move it beyond the realm of your standard Italian Grigio. Citrus, honey and cantaloupe melon appear on the bouquet."
