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

Intense ruby red color. On the nose, this wine is rich and full with hints of violet, rose and almond tree flowers. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, delicate and elegant. This wine can age up to 12-15 years.

As the Bricco Manzoni "younger brother," the Quatr Nas aims at embracing the most innovative concept of the assembly since the first vintage in 1996. This wine brings together the four most important vines in the world, keeping the Nebbiolo as the common denominator, to represent the territory typicality. Blend: 50% Nebbiolo, 50% Pinot Noir/Cabernet/Merlot

Critical Acclaim

"The 2004 Langhe Quatr Nas is especially striking in this vintage. A cuvee of Nebbiolo, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Pinot Noir, it is one of the handful of Piedmontese blends that delivers real personality and character. The wine remains young and painfully backward, but in a few years the massive vibrant dark fruit should begin to emerge. This is a great effort. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024."

"Twenty years after the first release of Bricco Manzoni, Valentino Migliorini created this blend of nebbiolo, cabernet sauvignon, merlot and pinot noir in 1996. This 2004 is tighter and tenser than the Bricco Manzoni (also recommended here, but from the 2005 vintage). It's an intriguing blend, the tannins still youthfully aggressive, the nebbiolo and cabernet character still battling for dominance. It finishes dry, a black and austere wine for a truffle risotto with roast lamb."

"Bright ruby-red. Complex nose melds black raspberry, coffee and nuts. Sweet, dense and sappy, with lovely balancing acidity giving clarity to the wine's supple flavors. Not at all overly oaky despite having spent 24 months in mostly new wood. This has lovely fruit and balance and finishes with broad, fine, suave tannins. One senses that all the varieties ripened well in 2004."
