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.

Wine tannin gives wine its textural mouthfeel and astringency. Tannin is a natural compound found in grape skins, seeds, and stems.

La Segreta Pottarello Red Blend is a dry, red wine that offers a different expression of the popular Italian grape of Sangiovese. The wine is predominantly Sangiovese supported by Malvasia Nera and Colorino. The vineyard is south facing, and receives the full extent of the sun. Only 50 rows of Sangiovese vines are harvest, which are known to produce smaller berries with thick skins, to yield a richer wine with more tannins. The wine sees a long period of skin contact to maximize structure before spending 12 months in old oak vats and 9 months in bottle before release. This wine is more similar to Brunello di Montalcino with baked black cherry fruit and notes of dried herbs alongside some violet notes from the Malvasia. This is a must try for any Sangiovese enthusiast.
