Firstly, we will focus on wine tasting taking a little time to discover the quantity and sensations given from the four main tastes that our mouth is able to distinguish: sweet, acid, salt, bitter followed by sparkling sensations, tannins, alcohol, smoothness, intensity of taste persistency, intensity of flavour persistency, body.
For food we’d focus on 4 main tastes: sweetness, acidity, minerality, bitterness followed by quantity of fat, greasiness, zestfulness, spicy, persistency of taste and scent. For acidity and bitterness, we’d always need to talk about sour trend flavour and bitter trend flavour.
The best way to create harmonic balance between food and wine is to look for a contrast of flavours. For a sensation given from food, we’ll select a wine that can offer opposite sensations in order to create a balance.
Learn about the art of pairing wine and food, the key of a successful meal and the passport to the most amazing foodie experience.
This activity is perfect for food and wine lovers, team building groups and business meetings in Rome.
