Tannins Sheet Code: EnartisTanXC/en ENARTIS TAN XC Revision: n°0 June 2012 Page 1/1 OENOLOGICAL TANNIN FOR STABILIZATION BY COLOUR COPIGMENTATION. COMPOSITION Low molecular weight condensed tannins extracted from exotic species wood, non toasted oak tannin. GENERAL FEATURES Aspect: suede coloured granules, with slight wood odour. ENARTIS TAN XC is a blend of tannins studied in order to increase colour stability in young red and rosé wines. When added throughout the maceration in fact, TAN XC favours copigment formation between its alcohol extracted monocatechin fraction and the must anthocyanin fraction. The coloured complexes formed in this way are more resistant to oxidation, more soluble in the must/wine and available for condensation reactions with grape tannins. Oak tannins also, beyond their positive effect on anthocyanin/tannin complex formation via acetaldehyde bridges, reinforce the sweet structure of the final wine. The granule form facilitates its dispersion in water and wine and prevents dust formation that can be bothersome to the user. APPLICATIONS Use in all maceration/fermentation phases of red grapes in order to promote stabilization through anthocyanin copigmentation. Suitable for use in young and medium aged red wines and during the production of rosé wines. HOW TO OPTIMIZE RESULTS It is advisable to fraction the dose of ENARTIS TAN XC in two parts: the first fraction is added during the filling and the second fraction is added the next day. The combined use with Prolì Arom at inoculation further improves the antioxidant protection of aromas and colours, to have a good synergetic stabilization action of the anthocyanins by copigmentation and to have a longer lasting freshness. DOSAGE 8-40 g/100 kg of grapes in red winemaking. Average dosage: 20 g/100 kg. 2-15 g/hL in rosé winemaking. INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE Dissolve ENARTIS TAN XC in a 1:10 ratio of water or must and add to the mass during a pumping over, preferably using a Venturi tube.
