Definizione

Term applied to a well-balanced wine that is pleasant to drink. 1

Nota

To taste wine, sip and hold it in your mouth. Different parts of the tongue register different tastes. Allow the wine to roll all over your tongue, and notice the texture, or mouth-feel, of the wine. Balanced wines represent the harmony among several components: aroma, acid, tannin, fruit and sweetness. Acidity should provide a pleasant, but not overwhelming tartness. Balanced tannins contribute an agreeable astringency (that slight "pucker" feeling); this is one reason many red wines pair well with fat-rich foods — tannins in red wines cut through the fatty mouth-coating after each bite and prepare your taste buds to enjoy the next bite anew. 2

Contesto

This is a blending of the juice of white grapes. Dry, lively, fruity, very agreeable. A small glass of white wine before or at the beginning of a simple meal. 3
