Definizione

The total of all non-volative solids in the wine, including sugar, colour, tannin, acidity, traces of minerals, protein, and glycerine. [...] The value is always given in grams per litre (g/l).1

Nota

Essentially the minerals and other trace elements in a wine; sugar-free dry extract is everything in a wine except water, sugar, acids and alcohol. High extract often gives wine a dusty, tactile impression of density. It frequently serves to buffer, or mitigate, high alcohol or strong acidity.2

Contesto

Dry extract refers to the solid part of the wine—the powdery stuff that would be left if you removed all the water and alcohol from a wine.3
