Definizione

Dark red wine squeezed from pomace (grape skins, stem fragments, pulp, and dead yeast) by means of a wine press.

1

Nota

Press wine is generally inferior in quality to free-run wine, and much more astringent, although some presses are capable of exerting pressure in controlled stages so that the product of the first, gentle pressing is very close to free-run in quality. […] A certain proportion of press wine may be incorporated into the free-run wine, especially if it lacks tannin.

Contesto

The high quality "free run" wine is poured straight into barrels or stainless steel to rest and mature. The remaining mulch of juice, skins, and stalks is pressed, to extract a strong, tannic liquid known as "press wine".

Etimologia

Press: "exerting pressure," mid-14c.

Wine: Old English win, from P.Gmc. *winam (cf. O.S., O.Fris., O.H.G. win, O.N. vin, Du. wijn, Ger. Wein), an early borrowing from L. vinum "wine," from PIE *win-o-, from an Italic noun related to words for "wine" in Gk. (oinos), Armenian, Hittite, and non-I.E. Georgian and West Semitic (cf. Arabic wain, Heb. yayin), probably from a lost Mediterranean language word *win-/*woin- "wine." Also from L. vinum are O.C.S. vino, Lith. vynas, Welsh gwin, O.Ir. fin.
