Ellagitan is a preparation based on vegetal ellagic tannins promoting refinement and polyphenols polymerization.
Its action mechanism enables to form the ethanal needed for binding the anthocyanins and captures the free radicals which oxidize wine aroma.
For these characteristics, Ellagitan is indicated to stabilize wine color and mellow astringency; its taste is soft, velvety and elegant.
The most suitable application is at the end of the alcoholic fermentation stage and at every racking.
Ellagitan, when used during the wine refinement stage, gives a great stability to wines intended for a long aging even thanks to its great ability to capture oxygen.
This preparation can be used also as a clarifier, enabling to reduce the quantity of bentonites and of the other agents necessary to reach the proteic stability, maintaining the colloidal structure of white wines and enhancing their gustative sensations of fullness.
