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

Ripe and fruity with notes of spice and a soft finish, this primitivo is a winner. Strong, vigorous, and full of personality it is a real king (of the coop)!

I have never been disappointed by Primaterra wines. This Primitivo is no exception. They also make an excellent Sangiovese.
