Description (also fine-grained, delicate) for the overall impression of a wine in the context of a wine address, which can be meant negatively (e.g. too delicate = inexpressive), neutrally or positively depending on the context. In contrast to a full-bodied wine with a high alcohol content, this wine has a delicate structure. Various components such as alcohol, acidity or tannins are only slightly (delicately) pronounced or recognisable. Related or complementary terms are elegant, fine, light and slender. The opposite of filigree is bulky.

There is a vast number of sources on the web where one can acquire knowledge about wine. But none has the scope, timeliness and accuracy of the information in the encyclopaedia at wein.plus. I use it regularly and rely on it.
