If you are new to organic wines, you might be wondering what to expect.
Here is a breakdown of some of the main differences between organic and traditional wines:
organic chianti wine (vino chianti biologico) is made without using any synthetic chemicals or pesticides. Traditional wine usually contains sulfites, which are added as a preservative. Sulfites can cause allergic reactions in some people, so organic wine is suitable for sensitivities.
Organic wines are also made without using any additives or fining agents. Fining agents are used to clarify the wine and remove impurities, but they can also add unwanted flavors and aromas. As a result, organic wines tend to be less processed than traditional wines, and the flavors and aromas of each wine are more distinct. On the other hand, Classic wines are often blended to produce a more consistent product.
Organic wines are made with organic grapes, but some traditional wines also use organically grown grapes. To be certified “organic,” at least 95% of the ingredients in a wine must be organic or environmentally friendly. Traditional winemakers may not meet this requirement and instead advertise their wine as “made with organic grapes.”
Organic wines usually have a shorter shelf life since there are no added preservatives. Still, they will usually last for six months to one year after opening if stored properly in a cool dark place out of direct sunlight. Traditional wines can often be kept for several years once opened (if stored properly).
Organic wines are usually more expensive than traditional wines, but you can often find good deals on them if you shop around.
If you are looking for a more sustainable, environmentally friendly option, organic wines are the way to go. But don’t worry, the taste is just as good, if not better than traditional wines! So, what are you waiting for? Try a bottle of organic wine today and experience the difference.
