Nota

In wine tasting, the aftertaste of a wine, also known as its finish, is an important part of the evaluation of a vintage. After tasting a wine, a connoisseur or a sommelier pauses to judge the aftertaste, one of many aspects of the wine he considers in determining its quality. The flavors and length of the aftertaste are particularly noted. The aftertaste of wine may be described as bitter, hot, lingering, sweet, rich, short, smooth, tannic, or even non existent. Aftertaste is a significant component in brewing and beer evaluation. Each style of beer has distinct aftertaste components; from American lager which should be "clean" and have almost no aftertaste, to stout which should have a heavy, malty, and slightly bitter aftertaste. Some aftertaste components that are standard for a particular style are considered flaws in other styles, such as the fruity diactyl flavors of a Belgian lambic. Some characteristics of aftertaste in beer include: bitter, malty, earthy, sweet, fruity, cloying, clean, sour, skunky, or non-existent. 2

Contesto

Once you've swallowed the wine, note the lingering taste. This is called the "length". 3
