Welcome to the Qimisola Tasting Wheel, a wine tasting gadget made by Qi based on AIS vocabulary to make the wine tasting more fun! 

 

 

If you have the Qimisola Wine Tasting Wheel in your hand, start from the "Visual" aspects on the wheel, turn clockwise to follow the parameters one by one. There are in total 18 parameters in visual, olfactory and taste categories to complete the wine sensory evaluation.  Each parameter has 3 to 5 levels of description you can choose from to match your impression. The auxiliary information about the color check and the aroma category descriptions are to be found at the outer ring surrounding the wheel.  They aid you to choose the most matching colour description as well as detecting the aroma categories that are present in the wine you are evaluating.  On this web page, more detailed explanation about the vocabularies on the wheel is given so you can learn more.   (Content credit to: Associazione Italiana Sommelier (AIS) - "La Degustazione" Edition 2018 )
