Meaning of retrogusto



It is the name for the sensation left in the mouth by a drink or food after passing through the throat. It's actually a taste that is felt – after swallowing – in the back of the nostrils, and that's why it uses the prefix retro- ("backward"). See aftertaste .


Isabel Arriaga

In the wine tasting process, the aftertaste is one of the part of the process that occurs once the wine is ingested. It is the set of aromas and sensations that the wine leaves once drunk both in the throat, mouth and nose. All wines without exception have aftertaste, which can be long, medium or short depending on what the sensation on the palate lasts. It is also called an aftertaste or internal bouquet.
