Friday's False Friend

taste v. tasto

Taste is one of the most powerful senses and we love to use it abundantly when we live and visit Italy. But the similar word in Italian, tasto, refers to a key on a keyboard, many of which I am using to create this post. Translate taste into gusto for best results.

Eng) Wine has a different taste based on the region where it is produced.

It) Il vino ha un gusto diverso in base alla regione dove viene prodotto.
