10°C. However, for prestige wines marked with
the vintage, or sparkling wines that have been
aged for a long time, even 12°C may be
advisable to allow the development of the
complex bouquet that has been slowly and
painstakingly built up over the years.
Dessert wines and fortified wines
These two types of wine generally both contain
a high alcohol percentage and they are both
often also sweet. However, there are dry
dessert wines, such as Marsala, with a sugar
content so low as to be almost imperceptible on
the palate. For these wines, the serving
temperature depends on which features you
wish to emphasise. If you prefer to accentuate
the wine's sweetness, the complexity of its
bouquet and its austerity, it should be served at
a high temperature, between 14°C and 18°C.
Remember that in this case its alcohol content
will also be more in evidence.
If you require a fresher sensation, or to reduce
the sweetness of over-sweet wines, serve at a
lower temperature, between 10°C and 14°C.
Young, fresh, dry dessert wines can be served at
colder temperatures, below 10°C. This makes
the alcohol content considerably less
noticeable. However, remember that as the
temperature is reduced the bouquet also
becomes less evident. One of these wines' key
characteristics is the charm and complexity of
their bouquet; serving them too cold also means
sacrificing this important feature.
Storage temperatures
To enjoy the flavour and bouquet of each wine
at its best, it should be stored and drunk at a
specific temperature. The recommended
temperatures for different kinds of wines are
given below.
