Alcohol By Volume Guide
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%.
Ruby red with purple highlights. The nose is intense and youthful with dark fruits and some balsamic notes like tobacco. The palate is in nice balance with the nose, of medium weight and intensity and with a clean and fresh finish. Drinking beautifully now, this wine will also evolve over the next three years.
"The 2011 Insoglio del Cinghiale is wonderfully open, radiant and expressive in this vintage. Mocha, plums, black cherries and spices are some of the many notes that take shape in this striking, exuberant wine. Sweet floral notes and a hint of raspberry jam appear over time as the wine freshens up a bit on the finish. This is a beautiful vintage for the Insoglio."
Vinous / Antonio Galloni
"Rich and concentrated, featuring flavors of plum, blackberry, violet and spice. Shows dense tannins, integrated with a long, fruit-filled finish. Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot."
