Salubrity of environment and zoning process: first consideration on the radioactivity of vineyard soils

Abstract

La salubrité du milieu et des aliments intervient de plus en plus lourdement, et souvent négativement, sur la santé de l’homme, aussi bien sur l’individu que sur la société tout entière.
La nécessité, désormais vitale, de trouver des solutions valables à ce grave, problème, sollicite des recherches de plus en plus importantes dans le but de connaître les interactions entre ces variables si complexes.
Dans le secteur vitivinicole, les auteurs avaient déjà fait précédemment des recherches et des communications (OIV, 2001) sur la concentration de la radioactivité dans la chaîne terroir­vigne-raisin-vin, pour un terroir volcanique de la zone des « Castelli Romani» dans le Latium. Ils ont pu déterminer une baisse de la concentration radioactive d’environ 10 fois entre terroir et vigne, et de 100 fois entre terroir et vin.
Nous approfondissons dans ce travail ces recherches élargies aussi à un terroir de type « alluvial », en tentant de faire certaines interprétations en fonction de la physiologie de la vigne (plante pérenne) et de la fermentation de son produit.
Les données obtenues sur certains aliments végétaux à cycle annuel produits sur ces mêmes terroirs, élargissent le cadre des considérations et des hypothèses de travail.

The salubrity of environment and food in the relationship, with a bigger importance in agricultural production, has in the most cases negative sign on the human healthy. According this the salubrity has also a social aspect.
Today exist the high necessity for scientific research and solution for resolve the problem of salubrity, according all factors, which have the importance in the environment.
The authors have published in the previously works (OIV 2001 ), the problem of radioactivity in sequence vineyard soil-vine-grape-wine of specific vineyards soils of “Castelli Romani”, Lazio, vine zone of central Italy. This soil has a volcanic origin. Conceming radioactivity the results showed that the soil / vine ratio was 10 and the soil / wine ratio was 100.
In this research, as a continues of previously research, the observation was done on the one alluvial soil with relationship between radioactivity and physiology process in the vine plant and influence to must fermentation.
The obtained results with the others plant with annual cycle, in the same soils confirm the hypothesis about influence of soil radioactivity to salubrity.

Terroir e DOC: riflessi produttivi e commercial

Da dove scaturisce tutto l’interesse attuale per il terroir? Si provi, per dare risposta a questo quesito, ad immaginare il vino avulso dalla sua dimensione territoriale. Cosa si otterrebbe? Un vino bianco, un vino rosso o quant’altro, ma comunque un prodotto privo di conno­tazione geografica, di premesse storiche, di radici tradizionali, di potere evocativo, di iden­tità e di personalità.

Impact of chitosan treatment on the physico-chemical features of a sangiovese red wine

Chitosan is gaining interest in red winemaking thanks to its ability to inhibit the development of Brettanomyces spp. yeast, or other undesired wine microbial threats. However, little is known about potential side-effects of its addition on the physico-chemical parameters of red wines.
