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

Grapes for the red Poderi del Bello Ovile 2007 wine (particularly the Sangiovese, Ciliegiolo and Canaiolo grapes) were in excellent condition at the harvest, though quantities were limited thanks to the weather and to a light pre-harvest thinning. Favorable weather conditions helped the delicate harvesting process. The fermentation process is over and we can forecast a quality level for the vintage this year similar to the excellent levels of 2005 and 2006.

Deep, almost impenetrable, ruby red, with violet colored edges. Fruits of the forest, especially blueberries, on the nose, but liquorice and vanilla, too. Rich and full-bodied on the palate, but soft and velvety at the same time. Excellent balance between tannins and acidity.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2007 Poderi del Bello Ovile, blossoms onto the palate with expressive, juicy fruit, grilled herbs, dried flowers, cherries and layered into scents of sweet French oak. All of the elements come together nicely in this round, utterly harmonious wine from Masi-Serego Alighieri’s new Tuscan winery. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2015."

I purchased a case at reduced pricing, and it turns out this is an exceptional everyday wine. It opens with earthy berry notes, and the end is spicy smooth.

A little tight right out of the bottle, but a short time in the decanter and this becomes a great everyday wine.

Sangiovese (SAHN-gee-oh-VAY-zee) Blood of Jove (literally translated) The principal grape of Chianti - in fact, the principle grape of all of Tuscany - has had its ups and downs. For a stint in the 70s and 80s, wines labeled Chianti contained cheap red wine packaged in a straw casked bottle, most popular for the candle holder it would become. But no more. Sangiovese re...
