Ellagitan Rouge is a preparation based on ellagic and proanthocyanidinic tannin, lightly astringent, sweet, vegetable and structured.
Its taste in an alcoholic solution reminds peat and liquorice, while its color is brown with yellow tinges.
When utilized during vinification, it re-establishes the balance in tannin-poor grapes and prevents oxidations, while its more congenial utilization is during maturation and refinement, where it stabilizes the color without changing the taste of the treated wines.
Ellagitan Rouge improves violet notes in red wines, preventing the color to develop orange nuances, and keeps unaltered wine qualities of gustative and olfactory freshness.
Its utilization as a clarifier enables to reduce the quantities of bentonite and of other clarifiers necessary to reach the proteic stability, consequently limiting the color quantity adsorbed by clarifiers in red wines.
