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

Deep ruby red in color with aromas of spice, blackberry, dried cherry and violets. The wine is soft and round, yet is well structured with a persistent finish. The lower levels of sulfites allow the aromas and flavors of this wine to shine.

Pair with fennel-spiced sausages, duck confit or aged cheeses.

Blend: 50% Albarossa, 30% Barbera and 20% Merlot

Critical Acclaim

"The 2007 Monferrato Rosso is a hugely delicious, value-priced wine bursting with fruit. Crushed flowers, licorice and spices add considerable complexity to the dark fruit. I especially like the juiciness here. This is another uncomplicated wine that convinces for the sheer pleasure it provides. It is equally soothing on the bank account. The Rosso is 50% Albarossa, 30% Barbera and 20% Merlot."
