adj.

Definizione

Term applied to a hard wine, rather dry that lacks richness and generosity. 1

Nota

Said of wines that are low in fruit and firm, sometimes hard, in texture. Sparkling wine is often meant to be austere, in the sense that "fruit" is intentionally kept in the background so that the wine can show the richness it acquires in its aging process. 2

Contesto

Not too far from Montalcino is Montepulciano, home to Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, another impressive Italian red wine DOCG, again made from Sangiovese - it is not to be confused with wines made from the Montepulciano grape. Vino Nobile has a reputation for being austere, but from the best producers it can be wonderful. 3
