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 of being made. Thus, in a first level the interest in tasting is focused in the enjoyment and pleasure we can get out of the wine. Here there are no standards and prevail the personal taste. On another level, tasting attempts to define objective criteria for quality wine. The art of tasting summarises 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 the basic properties: Appearance, aromas, flavour, emphasizing the qualities or defects of wine. The opinion of these testers are valuable in determining the commercial value of wine. Finally,in another level, the oenologists by tasting want to explain the organoleptic characteristics of wine based on the entire production process, from vine to bottle.
