Aspetti legislativi di settore: e politiche comunitarie


Sulla base del tema assegnatomi è stata forte la tentazione di addentrarmi nel labirinto della regolamentazione comunitaria. Per buona pace degli intervenuti ho ritenuto, pero, poco utile una elencazione di numeri e riferimenti normativi che saranno brevemente riassunti in una tabella (TAB 1), ed ho preferito lasciare spazio, invece, ad una riflessione sul come e sul perché la normativa comunitaria e la politica della Comunità in senso più lato, affrontano il connubio: territorio-vino. E’ necessaria, quindi, una brevissima premessa sulla politica eco­nomica dell’Unione Europea relativa al settore.

Physiological means to curb the enthusiasm of viruses from infecting grapevines  

The two most deadly viruses infecting and threatening the productivity of grapevines worldwide are leafroll and red blotch viruses. There is no cure for viral diseases other than roguing the symptomatic vines and replacing them with certified vines derived from clean, virus-tested stocks.
Given that phloem plays a central role in virus infection, this study aimed to purge the virus by girdling the phloem of leafroll-infected vines at different phenological stages of infected grapevines. Phloem-girdling was performed on canes at veraison to varying regions between the proximal and distal clusters.

Immunotestπ: a new test for the determination of proteic stability in white and rosé wines

Proteic haze is a problem which may occur in all fruit-based beverages and fermented juices (beer, cider, wine). When it occurs, the economic loss is important.

Specificities of red wines without sulfites: which role for acetaldehyde and diacetyl? A compositional and sensory approach.

Sulfur dioxide is the most commonly used additive in oenology to protect wine from oxidation and microorganisms. Once added to wine SO2 is able to react with carbonyl compounds to form carbonyl bisulfites what affects their reactivity.

Use of glutathione under different grape processing and winemaking conditions and its impact on the formation of sulfide off-flavors, colour, and sensory characteristics of Riesling, Sauvignon blanc, and Chardonnay

The use of glutathione (GSH) in winemaking has been legitimated recently, according to OIV resolutions OENO 445-2015 and OENO 446-2015 a maximum dose of 20 mg/L is now allowed to use in must and wine. Several studies have proven the benefits of GSH, predominantly in Sauvignon blanc. Thus, oxidative coloration of must and wine is limited, aroma compounds such as volatile thiols are preserved, and the development of ageing flavors such as sotolon and 2-aminoacetophenone is impeded. The protective effect may be explained by the high affinity of GSH to bind o-quinones which are formed during phenolic oxidation and which are known to initiate browning and other oxidative changes. Some researchers have proposed the hydroxycinnamic acid to GSH ratio (HGR) as an indicator of oxidation susceptibility of must and could show that lower ratios yielded lighter musts.

The ability of wine yeasts fermenting by the addition of exogenous biotin

Research is focused on the increase of the field of obtaining the wine yeast, under physical and chemical conditions. Study of different influences on yeast production is very important for the promotion
