Gelisol (Liquid Gelatin)
Description: Liquic gelatin used for all types of wines, mainly recomended for white and ros&#233; wines, and in association with tannins (TANICHENE) or silica (SILISOL). Speeds up flocculaton and sedimentation. This gelatin is lightly hydrolized, 0 degree bloom. Yellow appearance. Clarify whites with 400-600 mL/hL with 4 g/ hL SILOSOL. Clarify reds with 800mL/hL. DOES THIS FINING AGENT WORK FOR WHITE OR RED WINES. Vinquiry distributes.
We asked Leo McCloskey, Larry Brooks, and a dozen winemakers, ' have used this fining agent over Solugel and Gelsol (slight spelling difference) and prefer the Gelisol, largley because clients are successful in their mission to remove tannins. One caveat, like all fining agents it does remove some valuable aromatics and color. Rates required are high...."

This is not a great agent for red wines in our experience. We have watched the result of using this fining agent instead of Silver Leaf Gelatin, bulk gelatin or GelSol. It has consistently yielded no result when it comes to reducing red wine tannins. In essence winemakers may find that this agent causes more problems than it solves.
