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, brilliant, sunny yellow; the nose recalls exotic fruit, muskmelon & mango, nuts and subtle spice; structured on palate, layered, intense, silky & persistent, notes of vanilla, perfect balance fruit/acidity, long finish.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2011 Soave Classico La Rocca is a gorgeous wine and every last drop should be savored. It displays an elegant aromatic embroidery of brimstone, pencil shaving, stone fruit, fresh nectarine and honeysuckle. No one element overshadows the others and the energy and freshness is remarkable. Mildly creamy fruit appears on the close. This is one of Italy-s most age-worthy Soaves."
