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

Named Solosole ("only sun" in Italian) because only the sun is allowed to influence the grapes' aromas. There is no blending with other varieties, nor wood aging to interfere with the flavors of this grape. The goal in making this wine is to purely express the aromas and flavors that are so unique to Bolgheri.

Solosole offers delicate aromas of acacia flowers, apricots and banana. The vibrant acidity frames the fruity flavors and lingers pleasantly on the finish. This is the wine of choice for seafood antipasti, pasta with shellfish, omelets, soft goat cheese, fish dishes and vegetables.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2009 Vermentino Solosole shows terrific focus and drive in its ripe fruit, minerals and subtle notes of petrol that come through on the finish. The 2009 has only been recently bottled, and it comes across as a touch compact at this stage. With a few more months in bottle the exuberant nature of the vintage should come through with greater clarity. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2014."
