con cui si intende:Vino che dà una leggera sensazione d'astringenza e che lascia la bocca pulita ed asciutta.

non posso usare "dry" = secco;

English translation:dry
Explanation:
Of course you can use "dry".

Note that in the phrase, "asciutto" describes the perceived sensation on the drinker's palate ("bocca"), not the wine itself.

PS
Some (usually white) wines might be described as "crisp" but I wouldn't like to drink anything that left my palate "crisp"!
