CDR FoodLab® - Sistema di analisi per alimenti 1

Determination of Total Acidity in Wine and Must

With CDR WineLab®, device for wine analysis, is possible to determine Total Acidity in wine with a simple photometric reading of a sample of wine as is dispensed in a cuvette that is prepared with the reagent and already provided.

It is not necessary to resort to the tritation that is required from the OIV reference method. The results are correlated with the ones obtained with OIV reference method.


This analysis can also be performed on wine vinegar.


Test Principle

Total acidity reacts with a proper chromogen, bleaching it. The decrease of absorbance is proportional to the total acidity value in the sample.

Calibration curve

The calibration curve of CDR WineLab®, obtained using reference methods, potentiometric titration, confirms the excellent linearity of the system over the whole testing range.
