Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 12.8%

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

When nature and winemakers collaborate successfully, Nebbiolo produces wines of great flavor complexity with aromas of dried flowers, herbs, tea, tobacco, cherries, and raspberries. Dense with tannin, it just gets better with age. After almost two years in barrel and another year bottle aging, this '09 is full of tea and rose aromas with just a hint of tar and orange peel; subtle red cherry and flavors finish with chewy tannins.

Nebbiolo deserves your richest meats—a juicy slice of prime rib or a T-bone, for instance. A savory assortment of cured meats is another favorite. And, don't forget that Nebbiolo is Italian—tomato-based sauces with pasta are a perfect partner.

Learn About Nebbiolo

Nebbiolo(neh-bee-OH-low) The King of Piedmont Nebbiolo is the key grape in the wines of Barolo and Barbaresco. It is not the most planted variety, but it does make the most distinctive and age-worthy wines. Native to Piedmont, Nebbiolo is a bit of a soil snob - it's finicky about where it grows and has long been the honored red grape of Northern Italy...
