fiery

warm (GB)
chaud (F)
gagliardo (I)

Designation for the taste of mostly red wines in the context of a wine address. The higher alcohol content thus gives a wine expression, fullness and strength. However, this can also refer to the ruby red, bright colour. If there is an excess of alcohol, this is negatively described as gangrenous or pungent. Related terms are alcoholic and peppery, and sometimes also strong, powerful, heavy and bulky.
