Stabilità dei caratteri fenotipici dl alcune cv in diversi pedopaesaggi friulani. Applicazione del metodo nella caratterizzazione viticola del comprensorio DOC “Friuli-Grave”


This communication was estracted from a study concerning the viticultural characterization of A.V.A. “Friuli-Grave” area sponsored by Chamber of Commerce of Pordenone.
For the application of ecovalence stability index proposed by Wricke (1962) two traditional varieties cultivated in the area under observation (Tocai and Sauvignon Blanc) were chosen, stationed in 13 different places (guide vineyards), representative of 11 soil landscapes. Through informations collected by basis soil mapping (geological, morphological and historical maps) and during country relief, a soil landscapes map was produced, in order to individuate the guide-vineyards.
During this research, main vegeto-productive vine performances were evaluated, investigating, at the same time, the most important compositive must parameters.
All these informations allowed to estimate the vine-environment relationship and in this case the level of phenotypical characters stability.

Measuring the effect of oxygen consumption on the colour of wines as the level of dissolved oxygen decreases over time is very useful to know how much oxygen a wine is able to consume without significantly altering its colour. The changes produced in wine after being exposed to high oxygen concen-trations have been studied by different authors, but in all cases the wine has been analysed 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.

Plant nitrogen assimilation and partitioning as a function of crop load

Aims: The optimization of nitrogen use efficiency (NUE, i.e. uptake, assimilation and partitioning) is a solution towards the sustainable production of premium wines, while reducing fertilization and environmental impact. The influence of crop load on the accumulation of N compounds in fruits is still poorly understood. The present study assesses the impacts of bunch thinning on NUE and the consequences on the free amino N (FAN) profile in fruits.

The Hungarian system of geographical indications and the preparation of product specifications

Following the 2008-2009 reform of the European Union’s common market organisation in wine all protected designations of origin and geographical indications were imposed to prepare a product specification that described the conditions of their use. In this paper, we describe this process and the Hungarian system of geographical indications.

Vineyards and grape varieties: what is going on in wine professional and consumer minds?

Vineyard and grape variety are two popular ways of classifying wines. Vineyard designation is a traditional practice for European wine labels but is being increasingly replaced by grape variety designation, mainly used for New World and Swiss wine labels.

Aroma quality of fortified wines from different Moscato cv. Cultivated in sicily

AIM: Vitis vinifera L. cv. Moscato includes different varieties, mainly white grapes with a medium-sized berry, spheroidal or slightly flattened in shape, yellow greenish color which becomes golden yellow or amber when exposed to the sun. Moscato varieties are mainly used for the production of sweet aromatic wines
