Genotype-environment interaction of three cultivars of vitis vinifera L. cultivated in two different environments of the Ischia island: effect on production and quality; aspects of the quality of the obtained wines

Abstract

Pendant une période de trois années le comportement productif et qualitatif de trois cépages tous indigènes de la région de Campania (Italie méridionale) dans deux terroirs de l’île d’Ischia a été étudié; ceci pour obtenir quelques indications préliminaires sur le comportement productif et qualitatif des cépages et sur la qualité des vins. Les résultats obtenus indiquent la non-existence de facteurs limitants pour la culture de tous les cultivars testés dans les terroirs considérés. Le comportement des cépages et la qualité des vins obtenus la plupart du temps ont été plus influencée par le «facteur cépages» que par le «facteur terroir». Le vin de Biancolella a été catalogué comme «acceptable». Greco et Fiano comme «bon».

During a three year period the productive and qualitative behaviour of three grapevines, all native of the Campania region (Southern ltaly), in two distinguished environments of the Ischia island it has been studied, with the aim to obtain some preliminary indications on the productive and qualitative grapevines behaviour and on the quality of the obtainable wines. The results indicate the nonexistence, for all the tested cultivars, of limiting factors their cultivation in the considered environments. The grapevines behaviour and the quality of the obtained wines mostly were influenced by the “grapevine factor” than by the “terroir factor”. Biancolella wine was categorised as “acceptable”, Greco and Fiano as “good”.

Study of the sensory dimension of the wine typicality related to a terroir and crossing with their viticultural and oenological characteristics

The typicality of a product can be characterized by properties of similarity in relation to a type, but also by the properties of distinction.

Certain grape varieties contain negligible levels of isobutyl methoxypyrazine (IBMP) in grapes. However, it has long been known that grape stems

Influence of the agronomic management on the aroma of Riesling wines

Nitrogen fertilisation of grapevines is known to influence not only plant development and production yield, but also yeast assimilable nitrogen (YAN). This parameter is related to the growth of yeast

The “resources profile®”: a relevant decision and support system for adapting viticultural practices to soils agronomic properties and limiting their environmental impacts

Soil is a three-dimensional complex system, which constitutes a major component of Terroir. Soil characteristics strongly influence vine development, grape oenological potentialities and thus wine quality and style.

Techniques to study graft union formation in grapevine 

Grapevines are grown grafting in most viticultural regions. Grapevine rootstocks are either hybrids or pure species of different American Vitis spp. (particularly V. berlandieri, V. rupestris and V. riparia), which are primarily used to provide root resistance to the insect pest Phylloxera. In addition to Phylloxera resistance, ideally grapevine rootstocks should be resistant to other soil borne pathogens and adapted to abiotic stress conditions. New rootstocks have the potential to adapt agriculture to climate change without changing the characteristics of the harvested product. However, high grafting success rates are an essential prerequisite.
