adj.

Definizione

Wine exposed to air that has undergone a chemical change. The deteriorating wine will exhibit stale smells and colors can look brown.1

Nota

A flat ending taste, attributed to prolonged exposure of a wine to air. Mainly the odour of carbonyl compounds, primarily acetaldehyde. A colour change may also be apparent in white wines as a golden or amber colour. In red wines one may notice a red brick edge when holding the glass at a 45 degree angle to a light source.2

Contesto

Most wine experts are similarly dismissive of wine that’s been significantly exposed to air. True, in most cases, oxidized juice is the last thing you want in your glass.3
