powerful (GB)
pâteux, grossier (F)
impetuoso (I)

Description (also broad-shouldered, muscular) for the overall taste impression in the context of a wine appeal. Such a wine is characterised by a full body and a high alcohol content with perhaps too much dominance, but it may lack the finesse for a top wine. Related terms are fiery, full-bodied, strong, powerful and heavy.
