Definizione

Wine-making operation which removes suspended and insoluble material from grape juice, or new wine, in which these solids are know as lees. 1

Nota

Some wines deposit their suspended material (yeats cells, particles of skins, etc.) very quickly, and the supernatant wine remains nearly brilliant. This is particularly true when 50-gallon wooden barrels, which have greater surface-to-volume ratio than larger containers, are employed. The rough interior of wooden cooperage facilitates deposition of suspended material. Other wines, particularly in warm regions or when large tanks are used, may remain somewhat cloudy for long periods. Removal of the suspended material during aging is called clarification. The major procedures involved are fining, filtration, centrifugation, refrigeration, ion exchange, and heating. 2

Contesto

Clarification can be achieved by holding in a settling tank, filtering or centrifuging. 3
