Corpo / Body

Muitos já ouviram a expressão "vinho encorpado", mas o que quer esta expressão dizer? A nossa língua e boca pode sentir todo o tipo de texturas, pense na diferença entre a textura de um copo com leite e de um copo com agua, ambos são líquidos mas com diferentes "corpos". Quando se fala de um vinho "pouco encorpado" pretende-se significar que o vinho é mais “aguado”, parecido com o leite magro,tem alguma substancia, visto tratar-se de vinho e não de agua, mas é muito leve! Por outro lado, o vinho de "corpo" médio, apresenta uma textura que já é tangível semelhante ao leite meio gordo . E, por fim, temos o vinho encorpado, cuja densidade se compara às natas, sente-se claramente o "corpo" do vinho. -------------------------- Just what is the body of a wine and how do you describe it? Your tongue and mouth can sense all sorts of textures Think how a milkshake seems different than water, All of these are liquids, but all have different bodies. When wine tasters say "light/thin body" they usually mean something very watery - like 1% or 2% milk. There's a bit of substance there - you're drinking wine, after all, not water - but it is very light. The next level is "medium body". This is more like regular milk. There's a bit of substance there, but it's not really thick, it's just tangible. Finally, there is the "full body", this is is more like cream, where there is really something swirling around in your mouth.

SOMMELIER SHOW

 

 

We are a family of “wine lovers”, a space for sharing and interaction between wine producers, wine merchants, sommeliers and people who simply enjoy this magnificent nectar.

 

We would like to gather around our table and our wine a group of friends, from all social and professional spheres, who can share ideas and experiences around wine with us.

We started a series of initiatives, such as wine tasting, meetings with wine producers, visits to their farms and cooking workshops.

 

We count on your support to make Sommelier Lisbon a great Family!
