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

30% Corvina, 30% Corvinone, 30% Rondinella, 10% Molinara, Rossignola, Oseleta, Negrara, Dindarella.

A ruby red color with garnet reflections. Clear and transparent. A fresh bouquet with clear notes of cherry and currants. Good body, well-balanced and harmonic structure. The after-taste confirms the characteristics of the bouquet. Cellar for up to five years.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2006 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is fabulous. Dark cherries, plums, menthol, leather and licorice flow effortlessly from this rich, round Amarone. This shows marvelous richness and density while avoiding heaviness in a moderately concentrated style for Amarone. Bitter chocolate and mocha linger on the intense yet beautifully crafted finish. This is another superb effort from Tedeschi. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022."
93 Points

"This silky red shows solid structure, with light tannins framing the notes of sun-dried currant and strawberry, macerated plum, cigar box spice and sanguine mineral. There's a subtle juiciness throughout, with a hint of briar lingering on the finish. Drink now through 2026. 700 cases imported. "
92 Points

"Starts off with clean integration and elegant aromas of ripe cherry, forest berry, vanilla bean, clove and ginger. It continues its impressive performance with smooth tannins and a velvety texture."
