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 with purple highlights. Very rich and complex, with aromas of small red fruits, and enriched spicy toasted tones. Powerful and elegant, with a long aromatic finish.
"This attractive Brunello presents a wild, brambly side, with aromas of wild mushroom, forest floor, small berry and crème de cassis. It boasts a beautiful, deep color and plenty of concentration, with endnotes of spice, leather and dried tobacco leaf. The mouthfeel is solid, well defined and superbly structured."
"Aromas of cedar and milk chocolate with berries and cherries. Full body, with velvety tannins and a chewy finish. Better in a year or two but so delicious now.
"Rich and plummy, with warm brick, licorice, leather and spice flavors. Shows the warmth of the vintage in its breadth, softness and heady character, but this is satisfying and long, with a sweet fruit finish. Best from 2013 through 2022."

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...
