Sweet Wines

Sweetness in wine is derived naturally from the sweet flesh of the grape. The level of sweetness is dependent on several factors, including grape variety, ripeness, and other methods that can be undertaken to concentrate the sweetness in the grape.

To identify sweetness in a wine, pay attention to the tip of your tongue. If you have a sensation of sweetness, it is likely that the wine is sweet.

It is important to note that the terms used to describe the sweetness level of wine do not range from "not sweet" to "sweet." Rather, there are different categories of wine based on their sweetness level. In the still wine category, wines can be classified as dry, semi-sweet, or sweet. Meanwhile, in the sparkling wine category, wines can be classified as brut, demi sec, or doux.

When it comes to acidity in wine, there are a couple of things to keep in mind. First, high levels of sugar and acid can balance each other out. In a sweet wine, the acidity isn't the main feature - it's there to balance out the sweetness. Because of this, the acidity in sweet wines isn't as obvious as it is in dry, high-acid wines like Chablis. However, regardless of the sugar level, the mouth-watering effect from the acidity is always a reliable indicator of its level.

Furthermore, it is worth noting that the process of winemaking can also play a role in the sweetness of the wine. For example, some winemakers may add sugar to the grape juice before fermentation to increase the sweetness of the final product. Others may use a technique called "late harvest," where grapes are left on the vine longer than usual to allow natural sugars to concentrate and create a sweeter wine.

Sweetness refers to the taste of sugars present in the wine. A ‘dry’ wine has no sugar or has levels that are so low that they cannot be detected by the tongue. If the wine has a small amount of detectable sugar, it is described as ‘off-dry’.

‘Medium’ covers wines with a distinct presence of sugar, but which are generally not sweet enough to pair with most desserts.

‘Sweet’ wines refer to wines where the presence of sugar has become the prominent feature. This rather broad category covers most classic sweet wines, such as Sauternes and Port.

Overall, there is much complexity involved in determining the sweetness level of a wine. By understanding the various factors that contribute to sweetness, you can better appreciate the nuances of different wines and make an informed selection based on your preferences.

Is Lambrusco Always Sweet?

Hey there! Did you know that lambrusco can be produced in either a dry or sweet style? It's true! And to help you decipher the sugar content and sweetness of the wine, lambruscos are labeled accordingly.

  • Wines labeled secco (dry) can have up to 15 g/L of residual sugar, but they taste dry because the sugar is balanced by acidity and bubbles. These wines are usually deeper in color. Dry lambruscos are the most likely to be made in the metodo ancestrale and tend to be more layered, with earthy, savory flavors in addition to fruit.
  • Semisecco wines are off-dry, meaning they have perceptible sweetness from 12-32 g/L of residual sugar. These are the most common lambruscos, and are usually produced in a frizzante style using the Charmat method.
  • Amabile wines are semi-sweet, with 30-50 g/L of residual sugar. This style of lambrusco is usually simple, Charmat method wine made in bulk by large producers. It is now less popular than the drier styles.
  • Dolce wines are sweet, with more than 45 g/L of residual sugar. Similar to amabile styles but sweeter, dolce lambruscos are cola-like with candied red fruit flavors. Dolce lambruscos are wonderful to drink with dessert.
