adj.

Definizione

A wine (…) when the acid (…) is out of balance or strong. It would fall between "tart" and "sour" on a scale of perceived acidity. 1

Nota

It refers to wines in which you feel the absence of softness; these are generally weakly structured wines, obtained with too energetic processes and with a low content of alcohols and poli-alcohols. When you taste them you hardly perceive any sensation since they seem to vanish in your mouth. 2

Contesto

The red colour and the sharp taste both come from the skins of the grape, which are left on during part of fermentation to seep into the wine itself. 3
