Definizione

Technique ensuring temperature control during wine making, consisting of heating the red grape crop in order to increase the devolution of colouring material.

Nota

[Thermovinification] is applied to grape clusters or must before fermentation to liberate anthocyans, or colour, from the skins. [It is] particularly valuable in making everyday wines from grape varieties low in anthocyans, or from better-coloured grape varieties affected by moulds such as botrytis rot, which destroys colour in dark-skinned grapes. […] Thermovinification is rarely used in making fine wines, however, which almost invariably rely on extended maceration to extract colour and flavour from the grape skins.

Contesto

In the same way, the thermovinification of red wines generates effluents in which sugars are the main components of the organic load.
