All those who enjoy wine and feel a weakness for exquisite flavors are unconsciously wine testers, the senses used to try the wine are: sight, smell and taste, and these senses are not exclusive of a taster or a sommelier. Although, to be an expert wine taster takes many years of experience and knowledge that comes only with education, but to have a basic knowledge of wine tasting can be reached with interest and experience in wine consumption.
As I said earlier, the basics of wine tasting is a good use of the 3 senses (sight, smell and taste). Starting there, we can achieve a successful wine tasting.
Always hold the glass by the stem and put it to eye level, so we can see the color, brightness and cleanliness of the wine. By moving the glass you can see “the tears” or “legs” liquid drops of the accumulated liquid will flow back down into the wine, forming arcs or arches and leaving streaks, often considered a indicator of alcoholic strength.
