Abstract

The aeration-oxidation method stated by the International Organisation of Vine and Wine (OIV) in the Resolution OIV-OENO 591A-2018 is internationally recognized as one of the election technique for free SO₂ quantification in wine. The present work highlighted that an underestimation of the SO₂ content is obtained by applying this 591A method. A measurement uncertainty evaluation on the basis of the Guide to the Expression of Uncertainty in Measurement and of the Monte Carlo simulations was carried out on a wine simulant solution with a known concentration of free SO₂, prepared by gravimetry. By comparison between this 591A and the gravimetric methods, the obtained data resulted to be not consistent. To confirm this underestimation, measurement experiments were conducted by nine specialized laboratories with the 591A method on the same sample and none of which estimated the amount of free SO₂ which was present in the wine simulant.

Key words SO₂, 591A method, resolution OIV-OENO 591A-2018, wine simulant, total recovery, measurement uncertainty
