acid vs tannins wine

Updated: Feb 29, 2020

If you watched the "Tannins vs. Acidity" video on my youtube channel (Michael Geary), and want to more know about the wines I chose, look below.


If you haven't watched the video yet, watch it here first, then come back. I go over the key differences between tannins and acidity.


Here is the high tannin (like a slap in the mouth) wine:



Caparazo, Rosso di Montalcino


Winery: Caparazo

From: Rosso di Montalcino, Tuscany, Italy

Grape: 100% Sangiovese

Vintage (Year): 2016

Ratings: 90 points - Wine Spectator

Price: $18-25

Winemaker's Notes: Intense Ruby Red. Its bouquet is full and persistent, reminiscent of violets, raspberry, and pomegranate. On the palate it is warm, dry, generous and well balanced.



Here is the saliva inducing, high acid wine:



Bouchard Père & Fils, Reserve Bourgogne


Winery: Bouchard Pére & Fils

From: Bourgogne (Burgundy), France

Grape: Pinot Noir

Vintage (Year): 2016

Ratings: Vivino - 3.6 of 5

Price: $18-22

Winemaker's Notes: Intense color. Very aromatic bouquet of small ripe red fruits (cherry, raspberry, currant). Beautiful flesh in the mouth, a delicious marriage where tannins and fruits are pleasantly mixed.


Pair with: roasts, poultry, meat pies, medium-flavored cheeses.
