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

Ruby-red in color with intense aromas of blackberries and wild black cherries known as locally as le amarene in Italian. The delightful Aglianico manages to achieve both structure and softness on the palate, with flavors of dark berries and minerality that continue to unfold in the finish. Pairs beautifully with roasted meats or tomato-based soups and sauces.

Critical Acclaim

"Medium ruby. Floral, fresh aromas of red berries and sweet spices. High but harmonious acidity gives wonderful delineation to the sweet red fruit flavors, with smooth, fine tannins giving this tasty wine a seamless mouth feel. Doesn't have quite the complexity or length for an outstanding rating, but this is an irresistible glass of wine and a terrific buy."
89 Points

"Thick, dark concentration sets the stage and segues to spice and oak aromas lavished over black fruit, blueberry, granite and leather. There's also a soapy, lavender-like quality in the back. The wine has thick tannins and good length with bursting fruit flavors. "

Round and fruity, unlike most Italian reds which are highly tannic. The latter are hard to take often times for my palate, so I enjoy the Aglianico. Goes well with savory dishes or grilled vegetables, meats and lamb. Can also be a sipping wine, but really begs for food.
