The article discusses research papers on astrigency, polysaccharides and ethanol. A study published in the volume 63 of the "Journal of Agricultural Food Chemistry" assessed the interaction between poly-L-proline and tannin fractions extracted from wine by researchers from the Australian Wine Research Institute and the University of Queensland. Another research published in volume 513 of "Analytica Chimica Acta" examined the disruption effect of polysaccharides on protein-tannin aggregates.
