Definizione

It is a compound which is produced in the course of a chemical synthesis, which is not itself the final product, but is used in further reactions which produce the final product. 1

Nota

[…] The biochemical reactions converting one compound into its successor in this series are not 100 per cent efficient, with the result that small amounts of certain of the intermediate compounds accumulate in the wine. These compounds and their reaction products with other substances in the mixture contribute to what is known as fermentation, or secondary aromas. Included among these compounds are acetaldehyde, ethyl acetate, and numerous other esters and fusel oils. 2

Contesto

During fermentation, several “intermediate” compounds are produced that may be detected as secondary aromas. 3
