THE COLORS OF WINE

Color is the most evident aspect of wine and follows an evolution that accompanies its life, marking its various stages. The color of the wine depends on many factors, such as the types of vines used, the winemaking system, the refinement and aging.

Not only the shade, but also the intensity of color is important, it can be defined dark, charged, intense, or on the contrary pale, light. Usually, the higher the intensity, the richer the aromas and structure of the wine.

Finally, another important quality of color is vividness, closely linked to the acidity of the wine; from this point of view, a wine can be defined as vivid, fresh, clear, or faded, dull.
