How Much Do You Trust Professional Wine Critics?

Most of us buy our wines based on ratings of professional wine critics. We feel a sense of security that we are trusting our wine purchase decisions to professionals. However, research have shown that only 10% of judges are consistent. Scientist have surmised that wine is too complex for the human senses to recognize it correctly, hence it becomes inconsistent from one judge to another. Shockingly, a typical wine contains 27 organic acids, 23 varieties of alcohol, more than 80 esters and aldehydes, 16 sugars, dozens of vitamins and mineral compounds. That’s a lot of information to digest (pun intended)! At Carecci, a wine supplier Singapore shop, we believe that ultimately the only rating you should trust is your own rating.

The DNA of a Good Import Food Supplier

A good import food supplier has three aspects to them: reliability, price competitiveness and foresight. A reliable supplier is one who is trustworthy and can be depended on. Hence checking the track record of your supplier is essential; if the supplier has big names as its clientele, they are most likely reliable. Secondly, you don’t want to pay exorbitant prices for the same product that you get at a cheaper rate. A supplier at the bottom of the value chain tends to charge higher prices as they have to mark up from another supplier. Therefore, look for direct import suppliers such as Carecci, a food supplier Singapore shop. Lastly, the supplier must have the foresight to import the right kind of goods that the market or your customer wants.

Meet Italy’s Hard Liquor Stars

Italy is also responsible for popular liquors. Grappa to Italy is Whisky to Scotland. With a remarkable high alcohol content, Italian farmers of the middle ages drank Grappa to keep themselves warm during the harsh winters. Grappa is a distilled beverage mostly made from pomace and carries hints of caramel amidst a strong herbaceous flavor resembling grapes. Then there’s Sambuca. It is made with the infusion of witch elder bush and liquorice and is sweetened with sugar and enriched with a combination of herbs and spices. Let’s not forget Limoncello. To make Limoncello, lemon zest or peels without the pith is immersed in grain alcohol until the oil is released. These glorious Italian liquors can be found at Carecci, a hard liquor Singapore shop.

A Shocking Revelation

When bone health comes into mind, we always think of milk. This is about to change. A shocking report published by the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition reveals that while milk is responsible for the growth of strong bones, wine helps to sustain strong bones. The researchers discovered links between improved bone mineral density (BMD) and red wine consumption in men aged 50 to 80. BMD is simply the concentration of minerals like calcium in the bones and measures bone strength. In other words, higher BMD leads to better bone health. If you don’t like the taste of milk too much, how about drinking wine instead to strengthen those bones? At Carecci wine shop Singapore, you can find a large variety of Italian wines to strength those bones and give you a good time.

Discovering Tannin

Tannin which is prevalent in red wines is a strong antioxidant and natural preservative that aids wine aging but breaks down over time. The youngest, darkest and most intense red wines designed for aging are usually most tannic. Also known as the “wine grip”, tannin’s mouth drying effect is mostly apparent after 30 to 60 seconds after tasting. Do not confuse the mouth drying effect as those dry wine that are not sweet. Red wines obtain the tannin from the skin of grapes. These polyphenolic antioxidant compounds give red wines its colour, flavor and astringency. Wine is better learned through tasting, so why not discover wondrous Tannin today with Carecci red wine Singapore shop.

Time is a Scarce Resource

As they say, every action has an opportunity cost; this is the reason why we think hard before making any important decision. We all will agree that time is a precious commodity and time spent in an activity means that this time is no longer available for other activities. Many busy professionals love cooking and they require the right ingredients to wipe out tantalizing dishes, however, a trip to the supermarket takes up too much unnecessary time. The best part of online shopping is that saves time and yet it’s cheaper. Carecci online grocery shopping Singapore shop aims to bring a smile to busy professionals as we save them time but they are still able to realise their culinary goals with the right ingredients.
