The hydrostatic balance is an instrument used for the determination of the density (mass / volume) of solids and liquids using the Archimedes principle, with the elegant compensation system through weights of the "thrust" of the liquid in which a solid body is immersed, with respect to equilibrium of the same body in the air. Already in 1586 Galileo Galilei (1564-1642) in his writing "La bilancetta" describes the project of a balance or hydrostatic balance for determining the specific gravity of a metal when immersed in water, i.e. the weight relative to an equal volume of water. It consisted of a lever device with central fulcrum, at the ends of which a metal and were hung respectively on the other, a counterweight. Galileo made this device only in 1608 . The common hydrostatic balances (figure 1) allow to measure both the density of solid substances that liquid. They are normal two-arm scales, adapted to be able to measure the weight of a body solid both in air and immersed in a liquid.
The alcohol content of a wine is the volume of ethyl alcohol, expressed in milliliters, contained in one deciliter of a given drink. According to the more generic definition of the current legislature, it represents "the number of parts by volume of pure alcohol, at a temperature of 20 ° C, contained in 100 parts by volume of the product, considered at the same temperature". A wine with an alcohol content of 12, for example, contains 12 milliliters of alcohol per 100 ml of product. The alcohol content is expressed in a number followed by the percentage symbol (% Vol.).
“The alcoholic strength by volume of a drink is equal to the number of liters of ethanol contained in 100 liters of a hydroalcoholic solution having the same density as the distillate of that drink; said volumes are both intended to be measured at a temperature of 20 ° C. Its symbol is "% vol.". (OIV-OENO 601B-2021)Determination with Hydrostatic Balance
The alcoholic strength of spirit drinks can be measured by densimetry using the hydrostatic balance, based on Archimedes' principle according to which a body immersed in a liquid receives from the latter a vertical thrust from the bottom upwards equal to the weight of the displaced liquid. The principle of the method consists initially in distilling the drink. This distillation allows the elimination of non-volatile substances. Subsequently, the density of the distillate obtained is measured. The density of a liquid at a given temperature corresponds to the ratio of the mass to the volume of the liquid (m / V). In the case of wine drinks, it is expressed in g / cm3. For hydroalcoholic solutions, such as a distillate, if the temperature is known, it is possible to establish the correspondence between a density and an alcoholic strength by means of tables (OIV-MA-AS312-02: R2009, table 1). This alcoholic strength corresponds to that of the beverage (distillation volume by volume).
Based on art. 34 TUA, beer is subjected to excise duty with a rate referring to the hectolitre, at a temperature of 20 C, and to a Plato degree of finished product. Excise duty is a tax on the manufacture and sale of consumer goods. It is a tax applied to specific types of products, linked to the quantity and influences the cost of the final product. Ethyl alcohol, beer, wine, fermented beverages other than wine and beer and intermediate alcohol products are subject to excise duty.LAW 17 December 2021, n. 215 °PLATO degree
"Art. 35. (Assessment of the excise duty on beer). - 1. For the purposes of assessing the excise duty on beer, finished product means beer in the conditions in which it is released for consumption. The volume of each batch of beer to be taxed is given by the sum of the nominal volumes of the prepackages and the declared nominal volumes of the other containers used for packaging: the volume obtained, expressed in hectoliters, is rounded up to the liter, fully calculating the fractions greater than half a liter. By degree Plato, until 31 December 2030, means the quantity in grams of dry extract contained in 100 grams of the wort from which the beer is derived, with the exclusion of sugars contained in non-alcoholic beverages added to the beer produced. Starting from January 1, 2031, by degree Plato we mean the quantity in grams of dry extract contained in 100 grams of the wort from which the beer is derived, to which the quantity of all the ingredients of the beer is also added after the completion of the fermentation of the brewed beer. The saccharometric richness determined pursuant to this paragraph is rounded to a tenth of a degree, neglecting fractions of a degree equal to or lower than 5 hundredths and calculating the higher ones by a tenth of a degree.
