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

An intense garnet red color. A bouquet with traces of licorice and tobacco. Full flavored, full-bodied and elegant.

Pair with red meats on the spit or grilled, game, "grande cuisine" white and red meat dishes and aged cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

"So much floral character on the nose, plus ripe fruits. Full body with velvety tannins and a fruity finish. Subtle and reserved. Better in 2016."
93 Points

"The 2010 Barolo Marcenasco is a perfumed and floral wine with pressed violets and crushed rose petal at the front of dark tones of spice and pipe tobacco. The wine shows and exotic, almost spicy personality with a good level of heft and density at the back. It meets your need, should you have it, for a bold, deeply layered Barolo. Drink: 2016-2026."
91 Points

"Good bright red. Musky aromas of currant, plum, minerals, graphite and licorice. Juicy, rich in extract and precise, with an enticing savory quality to the dark currant and mineral flavors. Structured, bright wine with lovely balancing acidity. This serious young Barolo seemed to shut down in the glass but already expresses its terroir clearly.

Rating: 91+ Points"

Learn About Nebbiolo

Nebbiolo(neh-bee-OH-low) The King of Piedmont Nebbiolo is the key grape in the wines of Barolo and Barbaresco. It is not the most planted variety, but it does make the most distinctive and age-worthy wines. Native to Piedmont, Nebbiolo is a bit of a soil snob - it's finicky about where it grows and has long been the honored red grape of Northern Italy...
