The transparency of wines has been a fundamental element for aesthetically judging this nectar. Gradually, colours were beginning to reacquire their differences, whereas 20 years ago white wines were practically all the same colour, except for some particular ones such as passiti and certainly reds were less concentrated in colour, until the tones of the grapes returned. The appreciation of the individuality of the different grape varieties was discovered by consumers and consequently by the wine-makers, that realised how each wine had its own shade of colour. Aesthetic judgment was added to that of simply a wine’s taste, looking for the colour of any particular grape in the glass itself: a character within a character. Now some wines, biodynamic and not filtered, sometimes hardly racked even, have brought back that turbid look, almost as if wanting to become a licence of the wine’s ‘purity’. Of course a niche of production that does indicate a trend.... I love though, really, the transparency of a wine that reflects the light and that though the glass, manages to distort images, enabling me to see the World as a better place.
