[Autom. eng. transl.] The results of this first year of experimentation have shown that the "wine matrix" influences the efficacy and affinity of bentonite. In the case, for example, of a product rich in macromolecules deriving from yeasts, the deproteinising effect of the clays is less important, probably because there is a colloidal system that limits its effectiveness and because part of the macromolecules can have the same charge as the adjuvant . The less invasive effect on the more structured wine also concerns the aromatic component; in fact, reductions comparable to those obtained on the younger product are obtained with higher doses of bentonite.
