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

This wine is a beautiful purple red very bright. Fruity aromas, including red cherry. The mouthfeel is a very nice, balance tannins, acidity and alcohol, so that the wine is sapid and pleasant. The aftertaste reminds the almonds and is the very typical of this wine.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2010 Dolcetto d’Alba Munfrina is an energetic, inward wine bursting with blackberries, sweet flowers and crushed rocks. It shows marvelous energy all the way through to the layered, polished finish. This is an impressively structured Dolcetto loaded with class and pedigree."
