Planted based corks and wines from Italy 🍷 ⁠

Before sharing this wine experience, I want to talk to you about corks. We already know that it is a huge myth that if the wine has a cork then it is good and if it has a screw cap it is bad ❌, it all depends on the type of wine.⁠

However, the million-dollar question is why cork is used. The cork will allow the passage of oxygen in a measured way and this will allow the evolution of the wine in a wine that is designed to age. The same happens if the stopper is sustainable and is made from sugar cane.⁠

But how much oxygen does it let through? Here is the technical question, it depends on the cork. For example, in the Vinventions Nomarcod line (made with raw materials obtained from sugar cane) each type of product has a measurement of the oxygen passes through (it can go from 0.6mg of O2 per year to 3.5mg of O2 per year) and, also, what is the carbon footprint of each cap (Detail in one of the photos 📸)⁠

What does this mean? That when choosing a wine stopper today it is known exactly how the process of interaction with oxygen will be and, as a consequence, its evolution.⁠

To talk about these sustainable closures, the @vinventions.sudamerica team allowed me to try some Italian exponents that I share with you in photos and tell you here:⁠

🍷 Le Vigne Di Zamo - Traminer @levignedizamo

🍷 Le Vigne Di Zamo - Friulano @levignedizamo

🍷 Cantina Giardino Rosato @cantinagiardino

🍷 Cascina Valle Asinari Barbera D´Asti⁠

🍷 Certosa di Belriguardo Sangiovese @certosadibelriguardo

🍷 Casa E. Di Mirafiore Langhe Nascetta @mirafiorewines

🍷 Agricultural Brandini Barolo R56 @agricolabrandini

All these wines with these sustainable corks. And you, did you know how the cork works? Have you ever heard of these sustainable caps? I'll read you in the comments 🤩 and you know, if you like sharing it, comment on it and we'll reach more people with useful information about the World of Wine 😃⁠
