Definizione

The ratio of pure alcohol present in a mixture of water and ethanol. 1

Nota

Some percentage of alcohol content is required in wine and it has to be mentioned on the bottle by law, although a 1.5% leeway on the alcohol content mentioned on the bottle is allowed.
It can be measured by unit of volume or mass and is usually expressed by degree or percentage. 2

Contesto

The wine alcohol content will vary from wine to wine, and from maker to maker, and different kinds of wines will obviously contain differing amounts of alcohol in them. 3
