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 with purple reflections. Aromas of ripe red fruit, spicy fragrances of liquorice, black pepper and a hint of chocolate. Flavors are well-balanced, with round tannins, soft, hot, full-flavoured, elegant, fine and fresh.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2006 Amarone della Valpolicella Selezione Antonio Castagnedi offers up violets, graphite, black cherries, minerals, earthiness and French oak in a vibrant, structured style. There is terrific richness and depth to be found in the glass. Ideally the tannins could use a touch more polish, but that is a relatively small quibble for an Amarone that delivers this level of quality for the money. The Selezione Antonio Castagnedi is Corvina, Rondinella, Croatina and Oseleta that spent two years in 100% 500-liter French oak barrels. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2018."
