Should you feel more milk or espresso in an Italian cappuccino?

The relationship between milk and espresso is fundamental in the pleasantness of the Italian cappuccino, which generally seeks a certain balance between the two ingredients.

The goal is to obtain a wide range of smells, as indicated by the Italian Espresso Institute (IEI): delicate hints of flowers and fruit that are added to the stronger ones of milk, roasted (cereals and caramel), chocolate (cocoa and vanilla) and dried fruit.
