La certificazione ambientale del territorio: fattibilita’ e prospettive


In the next years the territorial environmental certification could become realistic if the following conditions will be fully satisfied:
– the enhancement of the environmental awareness among the industries, the public administration, the authorization bodies, the living people of that territory as well as the tourists and visitors.
To reach this stage according to the ISO 14001 standard other activities and experiments are needed, i. e.:
– the development of ISO 14001 Guideline for the territorial application,
– the development of specified environmental training courses,
– the scheduling and implementation of the environmental training to the public administrators and inspectors and to the living people,
– Some instructions to easily inform the tourists and visitors of that territory.
The second stage is the implementation of the Environmental Management Systems producing all the documents required by the ISO 14001 standard and the application guidelines.
In this stage the Environmental Policy of the territory would be defined and some environmental improvement objectives would be choosed, scheduled and implemented. This stage will be completed with the inclusion of the environmental internal audits. The third stage is the assessment and certification phase.
During this phase the auditors of the certification body will assess the performance of the territorial EMS according to the ISO 14001 standard, the guideline, the EMS documentation, the Environmental Policy and improving objectives. The rules and tools for implementing such certification are almost ready, we are looking for some territory and “La valle del Chianti” could be the right one.

The chemistry of wine is notably complex and is modified by ageing of the bottles. The composition of wines is the result of vine production (under the influence of vintage, climate and soils); yeast production (under the influence of juice composition and fermentation management); lactic bacteria production (under the influence of young wine composition and malolactic fermentation management); and of the ageing process either in vats, barrels or bottles or both. The composition is linked to the quality perceived by consumers but also to their origin, sometimes associated to the “terroir” concept.

Correlative study between degradation of rosé wine under accelerated conditions and under normal conditions

Several studies have tried to develop different methods to study the photodegradation of wine in an accelerated way, trying to elucidate the effect of light on the wine compounds[1]. In a previous study, our team developed a chamber that speeds up the photodegradation of rosé wine[2]. In the present work we have tried to establish a correlation between irradiation times in accelerated conditions and the natural exposure to the cycles of light that usually exist in markets or at home.

Simultaneous monitoring of dissolved CO2 and collar from Rosé sparkling wine glasses: the impact of yeast macromolecules

Champagne or sparkling wines elaborated through the same traditional method, which consists in two major yeast-fermented steps, typically hold about 10 to 12 g/L of dissolved CO2 after the second fermentation in a closed bottle. Hundreds of molecules and macromolecules originating from grape and yeast cohabit with dissolved CO2; they are essential compounds contributing to many organoleptic characteristics (effervescence, foam, aroma, taste, colour…). Indeed, the second alcoholic fermentation and the maturation on lees (which may last from 12 months up to several years) both induce various quantitative and qualitative changes in the wine through the action of yeast, as listed hereafter: development of aromas during aging on lees, release of nitrogen compounds during autolysis and release of macromolecules (polysaccharides, lipids, nucleic acids) in wine.

Reduction of the height of the canopy in fruit set and in pea size: vegetative, productive and maturation effects, in cv. Verdejo

Global warming is accelerating the technological ripening of the grape, with a loss of acidity, which requires that vineyard management can delay ripening to avoid it. The source-sink relation is essential for grape ripening, since it affects the distribution of photosynthates and substances derived from plant metabolism. A work is proposed to know the response of the vineyard to the drastic reduction of the foliar surface by trim down the shoots in cv.

Agroclimatic zonation for vine growing in Maranhão State, Brazil
