Synthetic caps for wines, sparkling wines and spirits first appeared in Italy and France in the mid-1970s as an alternative to the cork version.But to see their widespread expansion, it was necessary to wait twenty years, when, thanks to the evolution of technologies and the development of new materials, these closures were also used on high quality drinks.Today, in addition to providing the benefits mentioned above, these aids can be produced in attractive designs that are ready to impress consumers.The consumption of alcoholic beverages has in fact become a real moment of conviviality, in which the aesthetic part has also assumed an important role.
How to choose the right cap for every drinkBefore using a particular cap, the following parameters should be taken into account:– Type of drink: A specific cap is needed for each drink.For example, if the wine is new, not too fine and ready to drink, a synthetic cap would be perfect;– pressure of the wine: if it is a sparkling or semi-sparkling wine, it is better to opt for a screw cap, so that it can protect its effervescence and avoid the unpleasant effect of fizzing;– the internal profile of the bottle: this is used to determine both the diameter and the length of the cap, as volumetric expansion of the drink could occur.
