Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

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

Mediterra perfectly reflects the terroir of Bolgheri and expresses a masterly balance between the freshness of its fragrances and its warm and powerful flavours. The typically spicy notes of Syrah are entwined with the aromas of the vegetation and fruit of the Mediterranean scrub. An ideal pairing with various meat dishes, cold cuts and medium-matured cheeses, including Italian pecorino. It should be enjoyed slightly chilled, with seafood dishes such as mullet in tomato sauce, poached fish and Livorno-style salt cod.

Critical Acclaim

"This blend of Syrah, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon is a unique wine that shows quality fruit aromas of wild berry and sweet cherries backed by drying mineral, cola and exotic spice. The mouthfeel is excellent with a plush, sweet close. "

Needs to breath a bit. It hit the spot after that. What you would expect if sitting at a table in Italy.
