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

The 2007 Terra d'Oro Sangiovese showcases the depth of character that can be coaxed out of this varietal in Amador County. The wine opens with a nose of cinnamon, black tea and ripe black cherry. The cherries spill into the mouth, buoyed along a juicy current of balanced acidity. The finish lingers long and low, as the spicy components of the oak intertwine with the spice of the grape. Quite possibly the perfect food wine, enjoy Terra d'Oro Sangiovese with a family style platter of your favorite Italian dish. Add a table full of friends and family, mix, and enjoy.

Critical Acclaim

"Chris Leamy co-ferments sangiovese with 15 percent barbera to create this spicy red. It's light with tangy red berry flavors and ripe tomato-skin tannins. Tightly built, it will cut through pork sugo or lasagna."

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...
