Wine tasting is the acquaintance with the wine, the perception of its character using our senses. We can say that there are different levels of tasting, according to the purpose the wine has been made for. Thus, in a first level the interest in tasting is focused on the enjoyment and pleasure we can get out of the particular wine. Here, there are no standards; thus, personal taste prevails! On another level, tasting attempts to define objective criteria for quality wine. The art of tasting could be summarized in three steps: visual examination, smell and tasting. The tasting process is not complicated but requires immense experience and knowledge of the wine world.This tasting is performed by professional tasters who try to describe a wine by its composition, analysing and judging its basic properties: Appearance, aromas, flavour, emphasizing the qualities or defects of the wine. These testers' opinion is valuable in determining the commercial value of the wine. Finally, (on another level) from another point of view, by testing oenologists want to explain the organoleptic characteristics of wine; based on the entire production process, from vine to bottle.
