KORKED™ screw caps and the refinement of wine in the bottle
The KORKED mission is supplying to wineries closures alternative to cork, closures which allow the best refinement of wine in the bottled removing the famous TCA problems.
To solve this need, KORKED has realized, in collaboration with Milan Polytechnic and Udine University, Oenology Dept., KORKED™ PRO, synthetic innovative stopper, and KORKED™ SPIN, the first screw cap with micro controlled oxygenation in bottle, designed specifically to oenology sector.
KORKED™ stoppers, through a membrane inserted inside, allow to the oenologist to choose the correct permeability and so the correct evolution of the product in according to the typology of bottled wine, to the style’s winery and to the forecasted shelf-life.
KORKED™ products are patented in all the major oenological states.
In august 2012, to confirm the excellent evolution obtainable with controlled permeability KORKED™ SPIN, the Viticulture and Oenology Dept. of public service centre to Agriculture of Mosel, established in Germany, has published data concerning sensorial tastings and chemical analysis managed at 24 months of bottling of Riesling white wine.
KORKED™ SPIN-(minus) with low permeability membrane has been recognized, by a panel of 73 professional judges, as the best closure which has determine the better evolution of bottled wine resulting the favourite between 26 different stoppers (natural corks, agglomerated cork, synthetic stopper, screw caps, stopper’s glass) produced by most important worldwide stopper producer.
