Definizione

Alcohol present in the wine after fermentation

Nota

Alcohols that are the product of fermentation and contain more than two carbon atoms of ethanol are sometimes called higher alcohols, or fusel oils. […]
Although alcohol does not have a taste, it has an effect, not just on the human nervous system, but on how a wine tastes. The alcohol content in a perfectly balanced wine should be unfathomable, but wines that are slightly too high in alcohol can have a hot after-taste. As a general rule, wines described as ‘full bodies’ are high in alcohol, while those described as ‘light’ are low in alcohol.

Contesto

European Union regulations define liqueur wine generally as those having an acquired alcohol content by volume of between 15% and 22% and a total alcohol content (i.e acquired alcohol plus potential alcohol) of at least 17,5% vol.
