Very broad question.  Depends on what you are aiming for.  A bold red that
can carry more *** I might start at 1.100 and have started higher than
that.  For a light red I might go down to 1.085.  For an all round number
1.090 is a good starting number.

For a white grape I would aim at 1.085 to 1.095.

For most fruit wines I generally have aimed at 1.090 but now I am going
lower, down to 1.085 or even down to 1.080.

Like everything else it is a mater of taste.  If you like rocket fuel, aim
for 1.130.
