The chromatic features of a wine are defined by two analytical parameters: tonality and intensity Through appropriate mathematical formulas, calculating the absorbance of the wine at 420nm, 520nm and 620nm, is possible to determine intensity and tonality value in wine. These two elements, which represent “the chromatic profile”, change with the evolution of wine and they show the quality and the “health” of wine.
The Analyzers CDR WineLab® for determining Colour (tonality and intensity) in Wine and Must
The system is supplied pre-calibrated and ready for use.
Results are expressed in accordance with the reference method.
It is also possible to standardize the system using samples with a known titration.
The reagents have a shelf-life untill 18 months
The analytical methods are simple: the system does not require an equipped laboratory or skilled staff.

Comparative tests, carried out by Italian ISVEA laboratory, have shown an excellent correlation on the entire measure range with the reference method
Readings of absorbance at 420 nm, 520 nm and 620 nm are made on wine (sample as is) pre-vialed into the cuvettes. The instrument automatically calculates the tonality (according to the formula Abs 420 nm/Abs 520) and the intensity (according to the formula Abs 420 nm + Abs 520 nm + Abs 620 nm). The innovative CDR method makes the standard procedure easier and faster. The special photometric technology together with the provided cuvettes, enable to reach higher optical densities compared to normal spectrophotometers obviating the problems of sample dilution.
