Definizione

Odorous characteristic of wine deriving from ripe grapes.1

Nota

The primary aromas are the ones of the grape itself before it becomes wine. The most prominent family of evaporating materials from the primary aromas is of the terpenol alcohols, which provide tropical smells – pineapple, melon, papaya, and more. The grape varieties with the most terpenol alcohols are the different types of Muscat grapes, although they can be found in low concentrations in all varieties.2

Contesto

These compounds are found mostly in the skin cells of the grapes and are directly responsible for the “primary aroma” that gives each grape variety its fruity character or identity.3
