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

Nero d'Avola is the signature variety of Sicily, the land of sea, sun, art and good food. At Torresella, meticulous selection has created a wine that reflects the authentic Sicilian spirit in Nero d'Avola's aromatic abundance of red fruits, spices, and Mediterranean herbs. Torresella's sustainable practices, symbolized on the label, ensure an ongoing commitment to preserving the environment.

The aroma is very intense, red and black berry fruit, spices aromatic herbs and balsam. On the plaate the wine has outstanding body, fresh and soft-textured.

Learn About Sicily

(SIH-sih-lee) Sicily makes a lot o' wine. From Marsala, the sweet, fortified wine of the region, to up-and-coming Nero d'Avola, this hot and hilly region is diverse. Sicily was at one time more quantity focused than quality, and while it's still producing a great deal of wine, the quality coming out is much better. With poor soil (great for grapes), warm sunshine, little...
