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 nose is all about fruit—strawberries, pears, maybe a white peach and a grapefruit, all topped off with a black cherry. It doesn't take itself terribly seriously; in our opinion, it shouldn't have to. The flavor is all about strawberries. It's not sweet but not too tart with a surprisingly silky feel. There's a little bit of lemonade on the finish that keeps it incredibly refreshing.

Rosato di Barbera complements Asian food nicely. It's great with barbecue (particularly barbecued chicken) or grilled food. It works well with salmon—enough acidity to stand up to its richness but delicate enough not to overwhelm it; the same goes for creamy, stuffed eggs. It's refreshing—the perfect summer aperitif. We wouldn't tell if you put an ice cube in it.
