A Note from Sergio
It's an observable fact: the wine you'll drink from a large bottle will be better than the same vintage poured from a 750-milliliter bottle. Science can explain some of the reasons why wines from large bottles tastes better. For example, the air-to-wine ratio of big bottles is key. There's about an inch of air between the cork and the juice in every bottle, no matter the size, whether it's a split or a Jeroboam. The ratio of oxygen to wine is therefore lower in a magnum, so the wine oxidizes at a slower rate, and because of this, the wine ages better and lasts longer.Today's Featured Sections Include:
In the end, though, air level can only partially explain why wines in big bottles are superior. That bit of science can't explain the many mysteries, developments, and explosions that happen inside a bottle, nor can science explain the essential magic of wine. When I've pressed the greatest winemakers in Italy for an answer, they've all answered similarly. Wine is life, they say, and life flourishes in a bigger, better environment. Simply put, the more life, the better.
