meditation wine

meditation wine (GB)
vin de méditation (F)
vino da meditazione (I)
Especially in Italy but sometimes also in Germany and Austria common name for heavy and mostly sweet wines. It also appears in many wine brochures, but is not a standardized and universally valid definition. Meditation wines are usually not consumed as a food companion, but with the necessary leisure "to enjoy alone". The well-known Italian wine writer Luigi Veronelli (1926-2004) describes her as "special complex "not ordinary wines, which are suitable to be enjoyed on a long winter evening, sip by the fire and with every sip again a bit of surprise to create warmth and happiness ". Typical meditation wines are sweet wine types like Liquoroso. Passito. Recioto or Vin Santo, But also dry wines of the type Amarone, such as Barolo and Brunello di Montalcino are often referred to as such. The term is not undisputed because it contradicts the actual meaning of meditation.
