Wine Expert Note:

Castello di Verduno Barbaresco is a renowned wine from the Piedmont region of Italy. On the nose, it offers an enticing bouquet of red fruits such as cherry and raspberry, along with floral notes of rose petals and violets. There are also often hints of spices like cinnamon and cloves, as well as earthy undertones of truffle and tobacco. On the palate, this Barbaresco displays a harmonious balance between its fruit, acidity, and tannins. The red fruit flavors continue to shine, accompanied by a touch of dried herbs and a subtle mineral character. The tannins are firm yet refined, providing structure and a long, elegant finish. It pairs wonderfully with rich and flavorful dishes such as roasted meats, game, and aged cheeses. Read more

Wine body refers to the weight and texture of wine on the palate. In other words, it is the degree of body a wine has, ranging from light-bodied to full-bodied. Wines with higher body appear to have a thicker texture and can sometimes coat the palate.
Body
info
Wine acidity refers to the tartness of a wine, which gives a tingling sensation on the side of the tongue. A metallic-like sharp taste is also associated with high acidity. Sometimes a high level of sweetness, such as in luscious dessert wines, can disguise a high level of acidity. Acidity can range from soft to searing.
Acidity
info
Wine tannin gives wine its textural mouthfeel and astringency. Tannin is a natural compound found in grape skins, seeds, and stems. It contributes to the structure and helps to balance out the sweetness of the fruit. Tannins are usually discussed when it comes to red wines, even though some white and rosé wines with certain wine making techniques can also contain tannins.
