Prove preliminari dl caratterizzazione del vino gutturnio dei colli piacentini

Abstract

The “GuIturnio dei Colli Piacentini” V.Q.PR.D. results from the vinification of Barbera (55-70%) and Bonarda (30-40%) cultivars, grown in the hilly area of the Piacenza district, identified by the DM 31-07-93 art. 3.
The present work concerns the “zonation” of this area, constituted by 3 valleys Tidone (A), Nure (B) and Arda (C ). 11 homogeneous subzones (5 in A, 2 in B and 4 in C) have been identified studying the environmental and viticultural characteristics.
Some 1996 wines coming from each subzone were characterized using an unstructured card with sensory descriptors properly chosen for the Gutturnio wines. The sensory evaluation was carried out by a suitable trained panel of assessors. The work also reports a first classification of the same wines with the ‘Electronic nose ‘system.
This instrumental apparatus, based on an array of non-selective chemical sensors and a multicomponent data analysis, is able to recognize, distinguish and classify the odors.

A NEW TOOL TO QUANTIFY COMPOUNDS POTENTIALLY INVOLVED IN THE FRUITY AROMA OF RED WINES. DEVELOPMENT AND APPLICATION TO THE STU-DY OF THE FRUITY CHARACTER OF RED WINES MADE FROM VARIOUS GRAPE VARIETIES

A wide range of olfactory descriptors ranging from fresh and jammy fruit notes to cooked and oxidized fruit notes could describe the fruity aroma of red wines [1]. The fruity character of a wine is mainly related to the grape variety selected, to the terroir and the vinification process applied for its conception. In white wines, some volatile compounds confer directly their aroma to the wine while the question of “key” compound is more complex in red wines. According to many studies performed over the past decades, some fruity ethyl esters are directly involved in the fruity perception of red wines while others, present at subthreshold concentrations, participate indirectly to the fruity expression via perceptive interactions [2].

Agroclimatic zonation for vine growing in Maranhão State, Brazil

es indices agroclimatiques concernant le bilan hydrique et la température moyenne de l’air, ont été utilisés pour la caractérisation des zones avec différentes aptitudes pour la viticulture de vin (Vitis vinifera L.) dans l’état du Maranhão, Brésil.

Evaluation of the site index model for viticultural zoning

Une variable composite, dénommée Indice de Site (SI), intégrant les propriétés physiques du sol et le mésoclimat, avait été proposée pour caractériser les terroirs dans le cadre d’une étude des vignobles de Cabernet Sauvignon de Hawke’s Bay en Nouvelle Zélande.

Terpenoids and norisoprenoids in italian red wines

AIM Terpene compounds are associated with floral notes and are characteristic of aromatic grape varieties such as Muscat (Jackson, 2008). They are generally considered to potentially contribute to the aroma of white wines. However, there is a growing interest towards the potential contribution of terpene compounds to the aroma of red wines. The aim of this work was to investigate the occurrence of different terpenes in red wines from Italian varieties. METHODS For this study wines from 11 mono-varietal Italian red wines from 12 regions were used (19 Sangiovese, 11 Nebbiolo, 10 Aglianico, 11 Primitivo, 10 Raboso del Piave, 9 Cannonau, 11 Teroldego, 3 Nerello, 9 Montepulciano, 7 Corvina). All samples were from vintage 2016 and none of them had been in contact with wood. A total of 19 terpenes and 7 norisoprenoids were analysed by mean of SPME-GC-MS analysis using a DVB-CAR-PDMS fiber. The wines were collected in the framework of the activities of the D-Wines (Diversity of Italian wines) project.

Study of the colour and phenolic evolution of three different tannin/anthocyanin ratios over time in a model wine

Phenolic compounds are important quality indicators in red wine. A large number of polyphenols play an important role in wine development, contributing to the colour and the sensory perception of the wines. Anthocyanins are the pigments responsible for the colour in young red wines while tannins are the principal contributors to the bitterness and the astringency of the wines. Wine polyphenols are considered more complex molecules than grape phenolics, due to the enormous number of chemical reactions which take place during the entire winemaking process and storage, forming more stable compounds.
