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%.
Intense ruby red color with garnet highlights. Clean, sophisticated, intense and complex aromas, rich in evolved overtones, with hints of anise, ripe wild berries and a light touch of vanilla. Warm with supple tannins, great structure, good length and considerable aging capacity.
"A 2009 Brunello with dense, compact fruit and silky, refined tannins. Full body. Tight finish. Needs time to open. Very well done. "
"A very clean, fresh and focused wine with flint and bitter herbs plus complex dark berry notes. "
"The loaded 2009 Brunello di Montalcino is packed tight with mature tones of dark fruit, cherry liqueur, kirsch, cola and dark spice. There’s a dusty, earth note that grounds the wine to a sense of Sangiovese and the special territory that shapes this sun-drenched wine. The wine is a little hot on the palate (with 14.5% alcohol) and overcharged in places, but it also offers a cheerful dose of genuine personality."
The Wine Advocate
"Bright red. Perfumed aromas of red cherry, blueberry, bitter chocolate, earth and violet. Not quite as dense as some other 2009 Brunellos, but boasts excellent thrust and energy to its flavors of red fruits, licorice and herbs. The big, sweet tannins arrive quite late. This appears to be a slightly more concentrated than usual entry-level Brunello for Silvio Nardi."

Learn About Sangiovese
Sangiovese (SAHN-gee-oh-VAY-zee) Blood of Jove (literally translated) The principal grape of Chianti - in fact, the principle grape of all of Tuscany - has had its ups and downs. For a stint in the 70s and 80s, wines labeled Chianti contained cheap red wine packaged in a straw casked bottle, most popular for the candle holder it would become. But no more. Sangiovese re...
