Although they have existed for a long time in Europe, the Magnum bottle of great capacity, that contains the volume equivalent to two normal bottles (1.5 liters), are becoming popular in our country.
Magnum bottles are much appreciated by collectors and in large wine auctions, but why choose a Magnum bottle?
Experts in enology indicate that this format favors wine aging, becomes slower and more harmonious in to the greater capacity bottles. The result ?: wines with better uniformity and stabilization, as well as greater and better longevity. And it is that, in matters of wine, it seems that size has its importance …
Its price is usually higher than two bottles of 750ml of the same wine.
This is because the magnums are usually bottled and labeled by hand, in addition to the cost of their materials (cork, bottle itself, label, etc.) are larger and more expensive per unit.
As the liquid-oxygen exposure is higher than in bottles of smaller capacity, the aging can be longer, that is, the wine will hold more and the evolution more slowly in this type of container, which makes it the ideal bottle for wines of keeping, getting a great uniformity and stabilization, and even the duration of the wine is longer.
