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 in color with garnet reflections that increase with aging. The aromas are intense and persistent with floral hints of red fruits and spices. The wine has a remarkable texture and the taste is expressive, balanced, harmonious, very elegant, full-bodied and tannic that will evolve to become velvety with the progress of aging.

Blend: 95% Sangiovese, 5% Merlot

Critical Acclaim

"Lots of spices and dried mushroom, with dark fruits on the nose. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and raisins as well as sultanas. Lots going on. Delicious and stylish wine. Drink now."
94 Points

"Offers currant and blackberry, with hints of flowers and light toasty oak. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a long, caressing finish. Well-crafted. Best after 2010. 2,915 cases made. "

This is a nice Chianti. Bold but not harsh. Very drinkable now. Great mouth feel; rich and fruity with a very smooth finish. We just ordered another case.
