How To recognize a good wine

Updated on December 3, 2010

Obviously, the taste is most important, we all have the right to a quality wine not satisfy us. The first thing many think is that the price will be the decisive variable, however it may happen that an expensive bottle has no justification in its content.

To recognize a good wine we begin to see it. Regardless of the color (white, pink or red), within the cup it must be clean. There are some red sediments, but can never be cloudy. It should also be bright, very dull wines will loose its color. The edges of the wine will give us more data, such as reds, the color tile on the edges indicate that this is a good time to take it.

The nose is the next station in the rush to recognize a good wine. There are wines that have been long in the bottle, need a few minutes to release their aromas (in them is ideal to use a decanter). Young wines should immediately release their aromas. In any case, the presence of wood indicate that this is a process which makes wine worthy of respect. Beyond quality, if we find or sherry vinegary aromas (or odors), it is a bad wine.

To recognize a good wine mouth will give us conclusive information. The body of wine is critical in some red, while the freshness and acidity in some white wine. Obviously, each wine has its measure, the body of Cabernet Sauvignon is larger than the Pinot Noir, but the latter should not pass as if nothing by mouth. In this case it is likely that the wine which may not be of high quality.

Finally, the best way to recognize a good wine is to check how we felt when we took it. invites you to tell us two good wines, one for everything explained above and the second by what you lived with him.
