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

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

Alcohol By Volume: 14.0%

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

Ludovicus offers a glass-coating deep crimson hue with an expressive nose of cherry, blueberry, and blackberry. Mouthfilling, succulent, and flavorful, this tasty effort is a sensational value for drinking over the next 1-2 years.

This ripe, juicy, vibrantly big-fruited red wine is a real crowd pleaser, and Ludovicus's easy drinking nature makes it a versatile wine, either with meat and pork main courses or with more casual tapas or small plates. Of course, this wine is also a great sipper on its own.

Critical Acclaim

"Bright purple. Aromas of blackberry, blueberry, smoky minerals and white pepper, plus a suggestion of dried rose. Silky on entry, then firmer in the middle, with flavors of red and black fruits and floral pastille. The floral quality repeats on the lively, subtly powerful finish."
89 Points

"Celler Vinos Pinol's red wines begin with the 2010 Ludovicus, a blend of 40% Garnacha with the balance Carinena, Merlot, Syrah, and Tempranillo aged 3 months in French and American oak. It emits an inviting nose of spice box (cinnamon and clove), lavender, black cherry, and plum. In the glass it sports an easy-going, friendly personality leading to a fruit-laden finish with no hard edges. Drink this tasty blend over the next 3 years."

I can't think of a better wine for $$. Fabulous black fruit and velvety tannins made this a great pairing for spicy chicken tacos. Everyone at the table loved it - no easy feat!
