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

Montevetrano is deep garnet and shows an intense bouquet of blackberries, cedar, black currant, licorice, tobacco, earth and leather. On the palate, Montevetrano is fullbodied, yet elegant with fine grained tannins and rich, silky texture. Pleasing hundreds of wine lovers and collectors around the world with its distinctive character and rich spectrum of flavors, Montevetrano is one of the most sought after wines from Italy.

Critical Acclaim

"Proprietor Silvia Imparato has another gem on her hands with the 2006 Montevetrano. In this vintage the wine reveals terrific density and richness, but only shades of the complexity that will eventually develop in bottle. Still, nuances of smoke, grilled herbs, toasted oak and menthol occasionally come forward in the glass to round out the fruit. The 2006 is a relatively soft Montevetrano, but it needs at least a few more years of bottle age before offering its finest drinking. I am increasingly convinced that Montevetrano is released far too early; something that becomes quite obvious when tasting through Campania's other elite bottlings. Montevetrano is 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 10% Aglianico. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2021. "
