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

50% Grecanico, 30% Chardonnay, 10% Viognier, 10% Fiano

Straw with light greenish accents. Lively, aromatic bouquet combining mineral scents with classic aromas of green citrus fruit, lime, peach and white melon. Fresh, supple and round on the palate, with good balance between fruit flavors and crisp acidity. Excellent as an aperitif, and a perfect match with raw seafood dishes, lightly fried appetizers, salads and all types of creative cuisine. A fun and versatile wine, ideal for parties and other festive gatherings.

Critical Acclaim

"Pale golden yellow. Honeyed pear and passion fruit on the nose, with a bright overlay of white flowers. Juicy and soft, with more intensity than the 2007 La Segreta, but could use a bit more brightening acidity to frame its rich citrus and tropical fruit flavors. Finishes creamy and moderately long. This wine reminds me quite a bit of the Alastro, a 50/50 blend of grecanico and chardonnay made by Planeta."
