Estudios de zonificación vitícola en España

Abstract

La delimitación y caracterización de zonas vitícolas plantea en España problemas específicos no sólo por las características peculiares del territorio sino también por el tamaño, distribución e índice de ocupación vitícola, variable en cada una de las denominaciones de origen.
En la fig 1 se incluyen datos de las Denominaciones de Origen en las que se llevan o han llevado a cabo trabajos de zonificación en base a la metodología que se indica en este documento. En total suponen más de ochenta mil hectáreas de viñedo circunscritas en una zona de más de un millón de hectáreas.
La metodología se basa en un análisis del medio que incluye la integración de variables referentes al clima, la vegetación, la topografía, la litología, la morfología del relieve y el suelo y la distribución y productividad del viñedo y ha sido descrita en trabajos anteriores (Gómez-Miguel et al., v.a., Sotés et al., v.a.). El resultado final es un mapa cuyas unidades cartográficas (SMU) sintetizan las relaciones entre Unidad Litológica, Geoforma y Serie de Suelos. El tratamiento de la información generada en las capas tratadas por un Sistema de Información Geográfica (GIS) da como resultado la cuantificación de los contenidos y la posibilidad de su tratamiento estadístico (Fig 5).

The sea breeze: a significant climatic factor for viticultural zoning in coastal wine growing areas

La brise de mer est un facteur climatique important pour le zonage viticole des régions viticoles côtières car l’accélération du vent qui lui est associée l’après midi ainsi que l’augmentation de l’humidité relative et la réduction de la température concomitantes sont significatives pour le fonctionnement de la vigne et, par conséquent, la qualité du raisin et du vin

Impact of sulfur compounds to the antioxidant stability of white wines

The chemical mechanisms involved in oxidation/reduction potential of wine during winemaking and aging are affecting its color, aroma and taste. Chemical oxidation is one of the major causes of development of off-flavors during ageing1. Thus, the chemical changes in wine during storage should be controlled to ensure the sensory quality of the product and avoid consumer rejection that will compromise the economic value of the product. The 1-hydroxyethyl radical has been recognized as the key radical intermediate in the oxidative reactions in wine2. Based on the kinetic study of POBN-1-hydroxyethyl spin adduct formation in wines initiated via the Fenton reaction, a novel tool was recently developed in our laboratory to quantify the resistance of wines against oxidation3.

How to improve the mouthfeel of wines obtained by excessive tannin extraction

Red wines felt as astringent and bitter generally show high content of tannins due to grape phenolic compounds’ extraction in the maceration process. Among different enological practices, mannoproteins have been shown to improve the mouthfeel of red wines (1) and the color (2,3). In this work, we evaluated the effect of mannoproteins on the mouthfeel profile of Sangiovese wines obtained by excessive tannin extraction.

Fleurtai, Soreli and Tocai Friulano: perspectives for quality integration of wine together with protection of the DOCG Lison Classico appellation

In modern viticulture, sustainability must be considered not only into the winery, but in the vineyard as well, being that with the most attentive interventions in order to protect the environment. In this context, the new “fungi resistant” varieties represent a valid option for reducing the negative environmental impact of agrochemicals used in viticulture, including those ones used in organic farming (given the copper accumulation into soils). Several application studies have demonstrated the enological validity of many resistant varieties, both in price and as a blend. Also, under the production point of view, the feasibility and economical sustainability of the new resistant varieties was verified. The aim of this work was to deepen the knowledge on the organoleptic characteristics of wines obtained from the Fleurtai and Soreli varieties and to compare them with the wine obtained from Tocai Friulano, the mother variety in the area destined for the production of the Lison Classico DOCG appellation. The purpose of the work is then to verify the possibility of introducing resistant varieties into the DOCG while maintaining the wine name of the appellation linked to the territory.

FERMENTATION POTENTIAL OF INDIGENOUS NON-SACCHAROMYCES YEASTS ISOLATED FROM MARAŠTINA GRAPES OF CROATIAN VINEYARDS

The interest in indigenous non-Saccharomyces yeast for use in wine production has increased in recent years because they contribute to the complex character of the wine. The aim of this work was to investigate the fermentation products of ten indigenous strains selected from a collection of native yeasts established at the Institute for Adriatic Crops and Karst Reclamation in 2021, previously isolated from Croatian Maraština grapes, belonging to Hypopichia pseudoburtonii, Metschnikowia pulcherrima, Metschnikowia sinensis, Metschnikowia chrysoperlae, Lachancea thermotolerans, Pichia kluyveri, Hanseniaspora uvarum, Hanseniaspora guillermondii, Hanseniaspora pseudoguillermondii, and Starmerella apicola species, and compare it with commercial non-Saccharomyces and Saccharomyces strains.
