Wine Tannins

Tannins are one of the main characteristics of wines and are found mainly in the skin, seeds, and stems of grapes. They give wines a rough and astringent texture, as well as a bitter taste. In general, the darker and riper the wine, the greater the amount of tannins present.


Tannins play an important role in wine harmony, as they balance sugar and acidity. They are also important in the wine’s evolution over time, as they tend to soften and merge with other wine components, such as alcohol and aromas, as the wine ages.

Choosing a wine

Choosing a wine with more or less intense tannins will depend on your personal taste and the type of food you are serving. Wines with more intense tannins are generally better with fatty red meats and spicy dishes, while wines with less intense tannins are better with white meats and light dishes.

In our wine cellar you can find a wide selection of wines with different levels of tannins to suit all tastes. Our staff is always available to advise and help you choose the perfect wine to accompany your meal or simply to enjoy.
