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

Of an intense straw yellow color with greenish nuances. A fine, elegant nose with notes of white fruits and citrus develops into a subtle mineral aroma. It has a rich alcohol zing and flavor but with its well balanced acidity it becomes soft on the palate.

Critical Acclaim

"Sartarelli’s 2010 Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico Superiore Tralivio opens with a blast of juicy, yellow stone fruits and flowers, but then the minerality kicks in on the mid-palate and finish. Unctuous, textured and beautiful, this 2010 impresses for its exceptional balance and finesse. I loved it. Mint, flowers and citrus reappear on the intense, saline-drenched finish. Tasting the 2010 made me crave a good plate (or two!) of crudo. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2018."
