Proposal of a procedure for sensory characterisation of wines from different subareas of a same D.O.C. (V.Q.P.R.D.)

Abstract

In the course of the present work, which is the first part of a study on the “characterization of Barbera dell’Oltrepo Pavese D.O.C.” 30 wines Barbera from 1993 vintage have been compared only regarding their sensory characteristics. An unstructured scale card, composed by 15 descriptors have been used. The terms of description in the card have been those more frequently mentioned by the assessors during some preliminary degustation sessions. All data from sensory evaluation have been elaborated by some consensus statistical methods (Univariate regression, Generalized Procrustes analysis, Consensus PLS) to eliminate systematic differences between judges, consequence of personal scale and/or confusion between attributes. The differences among samples are only slightly changed when the consensus techniques have been used. With the exception of some wines, a good uniformity in sensory characteristics was observed. Relations between wine sensory descriptors and the altitude of the vineyards have been also studied using PLS method.

Influence of short-time skin maceration combined with enzyme treatment on the volatile composition of musts from fresh and withered fiano winegrapes

AIM: The increasing market competitiveness is promoting the production of special dry wines with distinctive characteristics, obtained either from minor winegrape varieties and/or the inclusion of partially dehydrated grapes.

PROFILING OF LIPIDS IN WINES FROM MONOCULTURE FERMENTATION WITH INDIGENOUS METSCHNIKOWIA YEAST SPECIES

Lipids are a diverse group of organic compounds essential for living systems. They are vital compounds for yeast which makes them an important modulator of yeast metabolism in alcoholic fermentation. This study presents a comprehensive lipidome analysis of wine samples from the Vitis vinifera L., Maraština. The fermentation trails were set up in monoculture with different indigenous yeast strains selected from a collection of native yeasts established at the Institute for Adriatic Crops and Karst Reclamation in 2021, previously isolated from Croatian Maraština grapes: Metschnikowia pulcherrima, Metshnikowia sinensis/shanxiensis , and Metschnikowia chyrsoperlae.

POTENTIAL DEACIDIFYING ROLE OF A COMMERCIAL CHITOSAN: IMPACT ON PH, TITRATABLE ACIDITY, AND ORGANIC ACIDS IN MODEL SOLUTIONS AND WHITE WINE

Chitin is the main structural component of a large number of organisms (i.e., mollusks, insects, crustaceans, fungi, algae), and marine invertebrates including crabs and shrimps. The main derivative of chitin is chitosan (CH), produced by N-deacetylation of chitin in alkaline solutions. Over the past decade, the OIV/OENO 338A/ 2009 resolution approved the addition of allergen-free fungoid CH to must and wine as an adjuvant for microbiological control, prevention of haziness, metals chelation and ochratoxins removal (European Commission. 2011). Despite several studies on application of CH in winemaking, there are still very limited and controversial data on its interaction with acidic components in wine (Colan-gelo et al., 2018; Castro Marin et al., 2021).

REGULATION OF CENTRAL METABOLISM IN THE LEAVES OF A GRAPE VINES VA- RIETAL COLLECTION ON A TEMPERATURE CLINE

Grape (Vitis vinifera) is one of the world’s oldest agricultural fruit crops, grown for wine, table grape, raisin, and other products. One of the factors that can cause a reduction in the grape growing area is temperature rise due to climate change. Elevated temperature causes changes in grapevine phenology and fruit chemical composition. Previous studies showed that grape varieties respond differently to a temperature shift of 1.5°C; few varieties had difficulties in the fruit development or could not reach the desired Brix level.
