Product details

A high glycerol producer, IOC R 9008 helps to decrease herbaceous characters, astringency and aggressive tannin sensations and reduce the hotness of ethanol. Suited for difficult conditions, with musts from warmer winemaking regions, it helps to minimise the perceptions of dryness and bitterness whilst, at the same time, intensifying the mineral notes and length in the mouth. IOC R 9008 has been selected to develop complex ripe fruit aromas and volume for structured red wines made from concentrated grapes at full maturity.
