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

Very intense and deep ruby/purple red, which shows great concentration. Extremely attractive nose, with hints of ripe red fruits, blackcurrant aromas, leather and licorice. Full, warm, very well developed and persistent. Big, firm, warm and very well structured, with loads of ripe fruit. Dense, yet silky and smooth, greatly balanced and with an extremely long finish. This wine has a great aging potential.

Critical Acclaim

"Plum and flowers, with hints of nutmeg. Full body, with polished velvety tannins and a lively acidity. Lovely texture to this wine. Best in 2013. "
94 Points

"Medium bright red. Warm aromas of plum, spices, marzipan and nutty oak. Plush, rich and pliant, showing terrific depth to its sweet red fruit flavors. Quite large-scaled for a Brunello from this estate, and surprisingly approachable now. Finishes with chewy but smooth tannins, excellent length and a taste of vanillin oak."

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...
