There is an increasing demand for quality control on wines worldwide, and consequently more and more needs for elemental analysis.
Thanks to its multi-element analysis capability, its high sensitivity and its ease-of-use, the ICP-OES technique is well adapted for wine elemental characterization.
From this characterization, the origin of wines can be identified as well as the technological processes applied during manufacturing. The identification of geographical origin as well as the processes used provides increased guarantee in the quality of the final product.
In this study the Ultima was used to analyze in white, red, rosé wines and must samples.
