Maturazione dei vini rosati "sur lies"

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


[automatically translated] A rosé wine produced with Nero d'Avola in the north western Sicily was aged at about eight months in stainless steel tanks and oak barrels, no "lies", "sur lies totales" fermentation and "sur lies" of Chardonnay . Accrued evidence "sur lies" of Chardonnay and those accrued fermentation "sur lies total" had a content higher than the "control pigments" (probably for the protective effect exerted by the polysaccharides derived from the lysis of yeast cells on pigments) . The first were the least equipped in anthocyanins due to the dilution caused by the addition of lies suspended in the wine Chardonnay and the partial absorption by the same lies. Despite the use of SO2 in maturation, some "evidence" and the "control" have undergone malolactic fermentation, which has influenced the values of pH and total acidity but not the content of total anthocyanins. Sensory analysis was more favorable to the accrued evidence "sur lies", also in stainless steel.
