Etichetta grammaticale

adj.+ c.n.


Gustatory and olfactory sensations perceived after having expelled wine from the mouth. 1


The duration of I.A.P. is an important indicator of quality. It can be measured in seconds. In a well-made young wine aromas usually last from 3-7 seconds. In a fine, mature wine they should last from 7-10 seconds and in exceptional cases they may linger up to 15 seconds or more. A wine is described as short if the I.A.P. lasts less than 2 seconds, or in any case less than the norm for its type. 2


The impact on the nose is intense with scents of fruit with signs of raspberry, generously full-bodied, well structured and endowed with an intense aromatic persistence. 3
