Apothic Inferno review: Which food pairs well with it?

Apothic Inferno is bold blend wine with intense flavors, as such we recommend to pair with equally strong flavor dishes. 

Classic appetizers are pizza rustica, spice curry dishes and caramelized onions to name some.

Meat wise you have wide selection here from quail, turkey, pork, ham, bacon, veal, and BBQ for example.

If you are a cheese lover our recommendations for you are semi-hard, hard, and blue cheeses like Cheddar, Grana Padano, and Gorgonzola to name some.

Apothic Inferno review: What's its alcohol content?

Apothic Inferno wine’s alcohol content is 16%.

In case you wonder about alcohol content or more precisely Alcohol By Volume, i.e. ABV, measure the alcoholic strength of a drink.

There is a direct relationship between the sugar left in the wine after the alcoholic fermentation has taken place, i.e. Residual Sugar or RS, and ABV.

During alcoholic fermentation, the yeast transforms the sugar in the grape juice into alcohol.

Grapes with high residual sugar will therefore produce dry wine with a high ABV.

How many calories are in a glass of Apothic Inferno wine?

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture [1] a 5-ounce glass will contain about 120 to 130 calories.

Alcohol contains 7 calories per gram. So a wine with high ABV will have a higher calories per glass than a wine with low ABV.

Furthermore, sugar contributes to the calorie count.

A dry wine will usually have 4 calories per grams vs a sweet wine that will have around 20 calories per grams of carbs, which include sugar.

What is Apothic?

Here is an extract from the Apothic website itself:
