Sustainable

The most of the thermal energy necessary to the FineCork® treatment, is obtained from renewable energy, and, in particular, from the biomass.

Innovative

A cork stopper able to provide the best performances during every step of its use: it doesn’t release cork dust or fragments, assuring a perfect sealing and a regular uncorking.

TCA Free

The treatment with "steam stream" totally frees the micro cork grains from the substances responsible for the so called "cork taint".

FINECORK STILL

FineCork® is the perfect synthesis among advanced technology, tradition and improvement of the natural resources. .

Thanks to an innovative treatment made with a "steam stream", developed by Molinas cork factory, the micro cork grains, selected among the best raw materials, are completely cleaned from the tainting substances responsible for the so called "cork taint". The treated micro cork grains are individually moulded to obtain a cork stopper able to provide the best performances in every step of its use. During the bottling time, it doesn’t release any cork dust or fragments, assuring a perfect corking and a regular uncorking.

On the other hand, during the corking period, it favours the natural and regular micro oxygenation of the wine, without leakage or capillary absorptions, guarding unaltered the flavours of every kind of wine. FineCork® is the ideal closure to seal wines characterized by a peculiar aromatic and floral content, but it is also recommended for wines that have to stay in the bottles for longer periods.

WHY CHOOSE FINECORK?

Why agglomerated microgranules?

The treated microgranules are agglomerated to obtain a cap able to provide maximum performance in every phase of use. In bottling it releases neither powders nor fragments, as well as guarantees a perfect capping and an equally regular uncorking.

During its stay in the bottle, FineCork® favors the natural and regular micro-oxygenation of the wine without dripping or rising by capillarity. But above all, it preserves the perfumes of every type of wine unaltered. FineCork®, in fact, is the ideal closure to store wines with a particular aromatic and floral content, however it also adapts to wines destined for a long period of conservation.

The Finecork micro-agglomerate stopper is produced solely by means of a molded body molding system. This, compared to the cheapest caps, guarantees a variability of specific weight and practically zero density. With its microspheres, the elastic return is more than 99% after only 1 minute from capping and uncorking, allowing those who need to store the bottles immediately horizontally, even a few minutes after having plugged them.

FineCork® guarantees the absolute respect of the strictest international standards according to food contact. An extraordinary result, reached thanks to the use of new technologies together with the most innovative material actually commercially available. Every product is certified by the several tests requested by Molinas cork factory to the main international laboratories specialized in researches and checks concerning safety in food contact. Analyses and certificates represent an important and considerable information, always at disposal of the final users, that, in their turn, have to answer to the latest rules as regards safety for food contact.

The energy effectiveness, and, consequently the sustainability of the different sources of energy supply, have always been one of the main aims of Molinas company policy. The most of the thermal energy necessary to the FineCork® treatment, is obtained from renewable energy, and, in particular, from the biomass; in effect, the obtained wood chips come from the maintenance of the wooded areas, carried out on rotating shifts in the 8.000 ha cork oak stands owned by Molinas, and, the obtained product has no environmental or atmospheric impact. Minimizing the use of fossil fuel, the greenhouse gas emissions, particularly of CO2, are at very low levels, so that we can state that FineCork® has no ”carbon footprints”, a pretty rare case in the modern industrial world, also in the one of wine.

SPARKLING FINECORK

An extraordinary mix of advanced technology and tradition

FineCork® champagne for sparkling wines is the product of an extraordinary mix between technology and tradition. The micro cork grains, once treated in order to be cleaned from all the substances that could taint the wine or that can originate other organoleptic deviations, are individually moulded, and the obtained cork stoppers offer the best physical-mechanical performances, really similar to those obtained using the champagne cork stoppers manufactured with the traditional cork grains: a perfect sealing and a constant pressure also in the long period, a homogeneous extraction force and a perfect elastic recovery.

As for the mouth finish cork stoppers, FineCork® champagne makes easier the natural wine ageing, concurring to its regular and constant evolution in the time, and keeping champagne and still wines taste and flavours unaltered. FineCork® champagne is the perfect closure to seal not only floral and aromatic wines, but also wines that need to stay into the bottles for a longer period. These peculiarities are stated by researches made by important institutes and international organizations.

Comité Interprofessionnel Du Vin De Champagne (CIVC), a comparative study with the most popular micro-agglomerate products of the main international competitors. Obviously, Sugherificio Molinas with it's FineCork® has been included in the researc.

The study is completely autonomous and independent , confirms that FineCork, from the mechanical and health point of view is safe, especially when the need becomes protecting without organoleptic alteration of any kind our sparkling wine.
