Still wine

vin tranquille (F)
still wine (GB)
vino tranquillo, vino quieto, fermo (I)

Colloquial name for a wine as a delimitation to a "lively" sparkling wine ( sparkling wine. champagne ). It contains no or very little carbon dioxide (still = not foaming / sparkling). The name has no legal meaning. At the label he is not allowed under EU law, because according to the Wine labeling regulations a false or misleading association could be aroused to "wine for a nursing mother" (see under health ). Complete listings of the numerous, different types of wine are among the keywords winemaking and special wines cited.
