vino acido


Explanation:
Ultima fase della degustazione. Anche questa, come le altre, è costituita da due momenti: l'analisi dettagliata dei singoli costituenti ed il giudizio complessivo.

I sapori fondamentali che il degustatore riesce a distinguere sono quattro: il dolce, l'acido, il salato e l'amaro.

Il dolce si riconduce al sapore dello zucchero.
L'acido a quello dell'acido tartarico e citrico.
Il salato al sale da cucina.
L'amaro al sapore del Rabarbaro.
Si percepiscono anche, seppur con maggiore difficoltà, l'astringente, il metallico e l'alcalino.

L'astringente è originato dal tannino (frutti di cachi acerbi).
Il metallico dal sapore tipico dei metalli.
L'alcalino dal sapore di potassa.
