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

The wine shows layered aromas and flavors of mint, red fruit and spices. There palate shows bright acidity and silky tannins before a long finish.

This wine is a superlative pairing for roasts, game and hard cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

"A beautifully executed wine, this has fine aromas of cola, red currant, licorice, blue flower and moist earth. The texture is long, smooth, silky and elegant texture. There’s a touch of menthol on the finish."
92 Points

"An elegant, vibrant red, suggesting floral, cherry, strawberry and woodsy notes. Light-weight, yet well-balanced, with a lingering finish of briar and tobacco. "
90 Points

"The 2008 Barolo Tortoniano is an attractive, mid-weight wine that expresses the personality of the year in its soft, floral red fruit, spices and accessible personality. This mid-weight Barolo should be accessible upon release and drink well for a number of years beyond."
