Vins sans sulfites : une nouvelle dimension avec un composé et sa méthode alternative

Vins sans sulfites : une nouvelle dimension avec un composé et sa méthode alternative | Grande Passione | Scoop.it
Vitisphere Portail internet d'information - Vins sans sulfites : une nouvelle dimension avec un composé et sa méthode alternative
Grande Passione's insight:

La société italienne Integrapes se veut l'annonciatrice de « l'ère des vins post-sulfite ». Créée par Alessandro Capodicasa en 2006, cette entreprise propose une méthode de vinification alternative, permettant de se passer d'ajouts de sulfites lors des phases de fermentations et d'élevage. Ce protocole (pour vins rouges, rosés et blancs, tranquilles ou pétillants) repose sur de meilleures pratiques oenologiques et un composé polyphénolique issu de pépins de raisins : le protos. Breveté, cet adjuvant remplace le SO2 grâce à ses propriétés anti-oxydantes et anti-bactériennes.
