San Fabiano Calcinaia Cerviolo Rosso 1999
Other Red Blends from Tuscany, Italy
"This perennial knock-out is excellent again. It has maple coffee and other wood-driven aromatics. The mouth is like a bowl of black plums mixed with mocha coffee and bitter chocolate. And the finish is ultrasmooth with light but welcome intrusions of vanilla. In a perfect world it could use at least two to three years of aging."
Wine Enthusiast, Best of the Year 2002
"Impresssive aromas of mineral mint and berries follow through to a medium- to full-bodied palate with velvety tannins and a long finish. Always well-done. Merlot Cabernet and Sangiovese. Best after 2003."
San Fabiano Cacchiano Winery
Guido Serio and his wife Isa arrived at San Fabiano in 1983 and immediately made investments aimed at producing quality wines. They have gradually made progress over the time, renewing the vineyards, the wine-making chain, the bottling and the cellar for refining the wine in wooden barrels.

Alcohol By Volume GuideMost 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%.
