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

Ruby purple color with intense aromas of concentrated ripe red and black cherries with vanilla and hints of brown spice. With refreshing acidity, rich tannins, and on the fuller-bodied side for Barbera, the single vineyard La Scaronne has finesse, excellent balance, great complexity, integration and a long lingering finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Bright, dark red. Fresh, floral aromas of cherry and wild herbs, with complementary oak tones. Dense, rich and deep, combining outstanding sweetness of fruit with harmonious acidity and serious power and structure. This will age well on its sheer density. Luca Currado picked these barbera vines early, "with very thick, ripe skins" and a crop level of under 25 hectoliters per hectare."
92 Points

"A powerful, brooding Barbera, evoking black currant, blackberry and coffee notes. This is broad-shouldered and high-octane, with well-integrated tannins and a touch of licorice on the finish. Best from 2013 through 2016."
