Definizione

Volatile acid, main acid in vinegar, having a characteristic sharp smell, resulting from oxidation of ethyl alcohol by microorganisms (Micoderma aceti). 1

Nota

Spoilage of bottled wine by acetic acid bacteria presumably is limited to situations in which failure of the closure permits seepage of oxygen into the bottle.
The most well known and serious consequence of spoilage by acetic acid bacteria is the production of high levels of acetic acid (volatile acidity). 2

Contesto

By-products of metabolism, such as acetic acid and ethyl acetate, are retained throughout fermentation and can taint the resulting wine. 3
