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

Ruby red with garnet reflections. The bouquet is rich and complex, with good persistence and hints of lavender which is followed by notes of leather and tobacco. The taste is balanced, elegant, pleasantly tannic, with a long, lingering finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Iron and tea notes augment the cherry, strawberry, licorice and tar flavors in this elegant yet intense Barolo. Has purity and freshness, with a resonance to the tobacco and spice aftertaste."
93 Points

"From the Rocche dell'Annunziata subzone, this well-priced Barolo offers beautifully vibrant aromas of cherry cola, chopped mint, violets and light shadings of exotic spice. In the mouth, it sports a compact, polished texture."

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.
