Wine, Must and Oenology
Alcohol is the main legal parameter for bottled wines; the declaration of fake values entails severe penalties for wine producers. For this reason, the analysis of wine must be done in accordance with the official analysis method.
It is very important to check density, specific gravity and alcohol concentration during wine fermentation, in order to verify its progress and provide notice if it stops prematurely.
The density of grape juice (generally called "Must") indicates the amount of sugar contained in the juice before fermentation. It can determine the expected alcohol concentration in wines, so it is very important to analyze its density accurately.
In addition to providing analytical support to wineries, these laboratories can release certificates of analysis with legal validity. As well as wineries, these laboratories have to perform analyses in accordance with the official method in order to be sure of the accuracy of the values they certify.
