Alcohol By Volume: 14.5%

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

Intense ruby red color with persistent bouquet of wild cherry, red jam and coffee. Tannic and soft, offers complexity, density and character.

Critical Acclaim

"Appealing for its sweet fruit flavors of cherry and plum, with licorice and mineral elements adding complexity and depth. Chewy and muscular, yet shows a sense of harmony and grace. Iron and tar accents complete the finish. Best from 2014 through 2026. 1,000 cases made."

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...
