Definizione

The smell of a wine. 1

Nota

In the wine world, the traditional definition of aroma is the simple, fruity smell of the grape variety. Today's broader definition combines a wine's varietal fragrance plus any changes that develop during fermentation and aging. The traditional difference is that a young wine will show its varietal aroma in a more pronounced way. However, in a mature wine - where some of the grape's intrinsic fragrance has been replaced by other characteristics - the smell transmutes into a bouquet. 2

Contesto

Wine aroma comes from volatile compounds in the wine that are released into the air. 3
