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 Perbacco is made from parcels all planted in the Barolo region, and more precisely in Bricco Boschis, Liste, Brunella, Rocchettevino, Pernanno, Ravera di Monforte and Scarrone. The average age of the vines is 35 years. All vineyards are vinified and aged separately until the moment the casks are selected for single vineyard or blended wines.

The work in the vineyards, the yield, the vinification system and the aging period for the Perbacco are the same as the Barolo Castiglione, however, unlike most Barolos, Perbacco shows elegance and approachability at a very young age. This vintage was a beautiful one for Barolo, and this wine offers up generous fruit along with menthol, spices, and a hint of caramel, showing notable intensity and power while retaining an essentially mid-weight style.

Critical Acclaim

"Rich and chunky, with dense tannins focusing the cherry, floral, tobacco and underbrush flavors. This is compact on the finish, showing more savory than fruit elements. Drink now through 2018. "
90 Points

"Good full, deep red. Captivating aromas of dark raspberry, woodsmoke, mint, minerals, flowers, camphor, licorice and brown spices. Not particularly powerful or outsized but boasts excellent cut to its dark fruit, rose petal and spice flavors. The long finish features suave, dusty tannins and excellent energy. A smaller cuvee than normal, as so much of the fruit was strong enough to go into the Castiglione bottling in 2010, noted Currado."

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...
