Composed by low molecular weight proanthocyanidin, polyphenols esterified with gallic acid. A compound that characterizes it is the EGCG, or the epigallocatechingallate, highly antioxidant substance (it contains about 70%).
GREEN THE combines capabilities of the pranthocyanidinic tannins (antioxidant, clarifying and complexing action) with that of the Gallic tannins, thus offering a wide possibility of use (fermentation, refinement, micro oxygenation). Added to white wines prevents browning, if added in pre-bottling enhances scents fruity and floral, improves wine taste and structure. The addition in the various stages of processing of red and rosé wines, stabilizes the color.
