Zonificación climática de las D.O. Rueda y Toro y vinos de la tierra de medina del campo

Abstract

La producción vitícola es el resultado de una serie de factores influyentes (variedad, patron) dentro de un medio ecológico­-climatico-edafico, en el que se interactua por medio de técnicas de cultivo adecuadas.
En la caracterización climática del viñedo estan presentes tanto los elementos tradicionales (temperatura, precipitación, insolación, etc.) así como los factores geográficos (latitud y longitud, altitud, orientación, exposición, proximidad a masas de agua, etc).
Para ver la influencia sobre el vinedo, en las distintas fases de su ciclo vegetativo, se cuantifican y se analizan los parametros mas relevantes en las D.O. Rueda y Toro, Tierra de Vinos.
Las caracteristicas climáticas más destacables de la región pueden ser resumidas (Garcia Femandez, 1986) como sigue:
– clima continental determinado por los efectos de encajamiento y aislamiento definidos por las cadenas montañosas que la rodean.
– rigurosos ( crudos) y largos inviemos: bajas temperaturas medias y generalización de los val ores negativos de las temperaturas medias de las minimas del mes de enero, minimas absolutas acusadamente bajas y largo periodo invernal.
– veranos cortos, relativamente suaves y con fuertes oscilaciones térmicas, con periodos estivales fríos y otros de calor riguroso.
– contrastes acusados en la cuantía y bajos indices de precipitaciones.
– aridez estival sensible y contrastada: acusada aridez estival, complejidad de la precipitación estival, duración de la aridez estival.
– régimen de precipitaciones con contrastes y matices con predominio de la de invierno y primavera.

Flavor Enhancement Of Neutral White Wines By Mango Peel Products

Varietal flavor is commonly known as the aromatic character of a wine in which the aroma of a particular grape variety predominates. However, not all varieties present particularly pronounced aromas. Therefore, different methods are constantly sought to enhance the aroma of wines with neutral aromatic characteristics, such as the use of glycosidases (1), certain yeast strains (2) or maceration with different agricultural products. In this work, aiming to improve the sensory profile together with the diversification of this product, white wines, derived from a neutral grape variety, were elaborated with the addition of mango peel by-products.

Modeling island and coastal vineyards potential in the context of climate change

Climate change impacts regional and local climates, which in turn affects the world’s wine regions. In the short term, these modifications rises issues about maintaining quality and style of wine, and in a longer term about the suitability of grape varieties and the sustainability of traditional wine regions. Thus, adaptation to climate change represents a major challenge for viticulture. In this context, island and coastal vineyards could become coveted areas due to their specific climatic conditions. In regions subject to warming, the proximity of the sea can moderate extremes temperatures, which could be an advantage for wine. However, coastal and island areas are particular prized spaces and subject to multiple pressures that make the establishment or extension of viticulture complex.
In this perspective, it seems relevant to assess the potentialities of coastal and island areas for viticulture. This contribution will present a spatial optimization model that tends to characterize most suitable agroclimatic patterns in historical or emerging vineyards according to different scenarios. Thanks to an in-depth bibliography a global inventory of coastal and insular vineyards on a worldwide scale has been realized. Relevant criteria have been identified to describe the specificities of these vineyards. They are used as input data in the optimization process, which will optimize some objectives and spatial aspects. According to a predefined scenario, the objectives are set in three main categories associated with climatic characteristics, vineyards characteristics and management strategies. At the end of this optimization process, a series of maps presents the different spatial configurations that maximize the scenario objectives.

Gas chromatography-olfactometry characterization of corvina and corvinone young and aged wines

AIM AND METHODS: Corvina and Corvinone are the two main grape varieties used in the production of Valpolicella, Recioto and Amarone, top-quality red wines in north-eastern Italy. This work aimed at determining the aroma composition of Corvina and Corvinone experimental wines and identify the main aroma compounds contributing to the aroma characteristics of Corvina and Corvinone monovarietal wines. Five Corvina and five Corvinone wines were studied, the grapes coming from five different vineyards in Valpolicella. Volatile compounds were extracted by SPE and identified and quantified by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS), whereas their aroma impact was determined by gas chromatography- olfactometry (GC-O).RESULTS: Based on the GC-MS-O analysis, 95 odor zones were detected, from which 68 compounds were successfully identified. Using the criterion of a value higher than 30% in modified frequency (MF %), 51 compounds were selected and grouped according to odor similarity. Compounds with values below 30% were discarded.

New tool to evaluate color modifications during oxygen consumption in white and red wines

Measuring the effect of oxygen consumption on the color of wines as the level of dissolved oxygen decreases over time is very useful to know how much oxygen a wine can consume without significantly altering its color. The changes produced in wine after being exposed to high oxygen concentrations have been studied by different authors, but in all cases the wine has been analyzed once the oxygen consumption process has been completed. This work presents the results obtained with the use of an equipment designed and made to measure simultaneously the level of dissolved oxygen and the spectrum of the wine, during the oxygen consumption process from saturation levels with air to very low levels, which indicate the total consumption of the dosed oxygen[1,2].

Evaluation des aptitudes œnologiques des raisins rouges avec l’étude de certains nouveaux indices de maturité phénolique

Pour obtenir des vins d’une certaine gamme, il faut connaître les paramètres liés à la composition de la baie et introduire non seulement les paramètres classiques, c’est-à-dire sucres et acidité, mais aussi les paramètres qui tiennent compte
