Definizione

The hue of a wine color is the actual color description. 1

Nota

While the wine color itself may not contribute significantly to the pleasure the wine brings you, it can tell you a lot about the wine in the glass before you even raise it to your nose or lips. However, there are also some misconceptions about how to interpret the appearance of a wine. When learning how to taste wine it is important to focus first on the appearance of the wine and make note of it in your wine tasting notes. 1

Contesto

A light-bodied white wine can range from clear to a pale yellow-green hue.2
