Zonazione aziendale nel territorio del Chianti classico e valorizzazione dei vini

Abstract

[English version below]

Nell’ambiente del Chianti Classico è stato applicato un progetto di zonazione aziendale con l’objettivo di valorizzare le produzioni dei diversi vigneti. In particolare sono stati individuati sette siti, sottoposti a studio particolareggiato per un triennio.
I parametri ecopedologici sono stati correlati ai dati fenologici e produttivi, con particolare riguardo alle sostanze coloranti. I vini ottenuti nelle varie tesi sono stati sottoposti ad analisi sensoriale allo scopo di valutare le potenzialità dei vitigno Sangiovese seconda diverse tecni­che di vinificazione, sia in legno che in acciaio.
I risultati sottolineano la variabilità fenotipica del Sangiovese, in relazione alla struttura fisica dei suoli esaminati. In particolare l’accumulo degli zuccheri risulta dipendere dalle caratteristiche del suolo, mentre il contenuto acidico risulta maggiormente influenzato dal­l’annata. ln condizioni climatiche simili i migliori risultati sono stati ottenuti in suoli ricchi di scheletro e terra fine, con buon drenaggio. La tecnica di maturazione del vino ha diversa­mente influenzato i prodotti ottenuti nei vari vigneti.

On a large farm in the Chianti Classico area, seven vineyards were studied. They had different levels of productivity despite similar cultural practices. The different vineyards were studied over a three-year period with regard to environmental and pedological aspects.
The parameters obtained have been correlated to phenological and productive trends, with regard to the sensorial analisys of wine and the color components. The wines were matured in oak barrel and steel tank to point out the best enological use of the different vineyards productions.
The results underline the phenotypical variability of Sangiovese, especialiy due to the physical structure of the examined soils. In particular, sugar accumulation depended on the soil characteristic, white acidity depended on the year. Under similar climate conditions, the best results on wine were obtained in sandy soils originating from sandy limestone rich with rock fragment. Maturation technique, using oak barrels or steel tanks, has differently influenced wines obtained from various soils.

Physiological and growth reaction of Shiraz/101-14 Mgt to row orientation and soil water status

Advanced knowledge on grapevine row orientation is required to improve establishment, management and outcomes of vineyards on terroirs with different environmental conditions (climate, soil, topography) and in view of a future change to more extreme climatic conditions. The purpose of this study was to determine the combined effect of row orientation, plant water status and ripeness level on the physiological and viticultural reaction of Shiraz/101-14 Mgt.

Effects of mechanical leafing and deficit irrigation on Cabernet Sauvignon grown in warm climate of California

San Joaquin Valley accounts for 40% of wine grape acreage and produces 70% of wine grape in California. Fruit quality is one of most important factors which impact the economical sustainability of farming wine grapes in this region. Due to the recent drought and expected labor cost increase, the wine industry is thrilled to understand how to improve fruit quality while maintaining the yield with less water and labor input. The present study aims to study the interactive effects of mechanical leafing and deficit irrigation on yield and berry compositions of Cabernet Sauvignon grown in warm climate of California.

The effects of cane girdling on berry texture properties and the concentration of some aroma compounds in three table grape cultivars

The marketability of the table grapes is highly influenced by the consumer demand; therefore the market value of the table grapes is mainly characterized by its berry size, colour, taste and texture. Girdling could cause accumulation of several components in plants above the ringing of the phloem including clusters and resulting improved maturity. The aim of the experiments was to examine the effect of girdling on berry texture characteristics and aroma concentration.

Application of a fluorescence-based method to evaluate the ripening process and quality of Pinot Blanc grape

The chemical composition of grape berries at harvest is one of the most important factors that should be considered to produce high quality wines. Among the different chemical classes which characterize the grape juice, the polyphenolic compound, such as flavonoids, contribute to the final taste and color of wines. Recently, an innovative non-destructive method, based on chlorophyll fluorescence, was developed to estimate the phenolic maturity of red grape varieties through the evaluation of anthocyanins accumulated in the berry skin. To date, only few data are available about the application of this method on white grape varieties.

Different yield regulation strategies in semi-minimal-pruned hedge (SMPH) and impact on bunch architecture

Yields in the novel viticulture training system Semi-Minimal-Pruned Hedge (SMPH) are generally higher compared to the traditional Vertical Shoot Positioning (VSP). Excessive yields have a negative impact on the vine and wine quality, which can result in substantial losses in yield in subsequent vintages (alternate bearing) or penalties in fruit quality. Therefore yield regulation is essential. The bunch architecture in SMPH differs from VSP. Generally there is a higher amount but smaller bunches with lower single berry weights in SMPH compared to VSP.
