sinewy (GB)
nerveux (F)
nervoso (I)

Term (also sinewy) for a wine in the context of a wine address, which certifies it as having a "good constitution" and thus storage capability or longevity due to a corresponding content of total extract and acidity. The variation "fine-nerved" is a somewhat more subtle form. Both terms are often used as additional or more detailed descriptive attributes; two examples are "annoying structure" or "annoying body". A related or similar term is racy.
