INFLUENCE OF CHITOSAN, ABSCISIC ACID AND BENZOTHIADIAZOLE TREATMENTS ON SAVVATIANO (VITIS VINIFERA L.) WINES VOLATILE COMPOSITION PROFILE

Abstract

In the last decades the use of bioestimulants in viticulture have been promoted as alternative to conven- tional pesticides. Moreover, as bioestimulants promote the biosynthesis of secondary metabolites in grape berries, several studies had investigated their influence on the accumulation of phenolic com- pounds (Monteiro et al., 2022). However, few studies, so far, are focused on the accumulation of the vo- latile compounds and their impact on the produced wines (Giménez-Bañón et al., 2022; Gomez- Plaza et al., 2012; Ruiz Garcia et al., 2014).
This study was conducted in a single vineyard of white autochthonous grapevine variety Savvatia- no (Vitis vinifera L.) in Muses Valley (Askri, Viotia, Greece). Chitosan (CHT), Abscisic Acid (ABA) and Benzothiadiazole (BTH) were applied. The applications were performed at veraison stage, in a rando- mized complete block and grapes were harvested at their optimum technological maturity level. White wines vinification procedures were carried out (Miliordos et al., 2022) physiochemical parameters of must and wine, and wine aroma compounds were examined. Volatile compounds were analyzed using a gas chromatography coupled to a mass spectrophotometric detector (Miliordos et al. 2022). Results were statistically evaluated by analysis of variance (ANOVA at the p ≤ 0.05 level) and principal component analysis (PCA). CHT treatment increased total terpenes, esters and monoterpenes concentration which may enhance the desirable aromas for Savvatiano wines. Moreover, ABA enhanced the concentration of total esters, while kept in lower levels higher alcohols than control wines related to unpleasant aromas. On the other hand, BTH kept in low levels monoterpenes and acetates, as well as concentration of acids (hexanoic acid, isobutyric, butyric, isovaleric) and alcohols were still in low levels compared to control wines and the CHT and ABA treated. Furthermore, these differences in the volatile compound levels could sensorially detected, by the sensory panel.
The application of biostimulants recorded promising results to enhance aroma profile of the produced white wines. More research on different Greek cultivars in different terroirs is needed in order to en- hance our knowledge regarding the effect of biostimulants on grape and wine quality. Funding : This research was co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund of theEuropean Union and Greek national funds through the Operational Program ompetitiveness,Entrepreneurship and Innovation, under the call RESEARCH–CREATE–INNOVATE (project code: T1EDK- 04200 (MU-SA).

CHARACTERIZATION AND IDENTIFICATION OF YEAST BIOACTIVE PEPTIDES RELEASED DURING FERMENTATION AND AUTOLYSIS IN MODEL WINE

Aging wine on lees is a consolidated practice during which some yeast components (e.g., polysaccharides, proteins, peptides) are released and solubilized in wine thus, affecting its stability and quality. Apart from the widely studied mannoproteins, the role of other yeast components in modulating wine characteristics is still scarce. Wine peptides have been studied for their contribution to taste, antioxidant, and antihypertensive potentials. However, the peptides detected in wine can be influenced by the interaction between yeasts and grape components.

IMPACT OF CLIMATIC ZONES ON THE AROMATIC PROFILE OF CORVINA WINES IN THE VALPOLICELLA REGION

In Italy, in the past two decades, the rate of temperature increases (0.0369 °C per year) was slightly higher compared to the world average (0.0313 °C per year). It has also been indicated that the number and intensity of heat waves have increased considerably in the last decades. (IEA, 2022). Viticultural zones can be classified with climatic indexes. Huglin’s index (HI) considers the temperature in a definite area and has been considered as reliable to evaluate the thermal suitability for winegrape production (Zhang et al., 2023).

CHARACTERIZATION AND ANTIBACTERIAL ACTIVITY OF A POLYPHENOLIC EXTRACT OBTAINED BY GREEN SUPERCRITICAL CO₂ EXTRACTION FROM RED GRAPE POMACE

Upgrading wine industry solid wastes is considered as one of the main strategies to support the circular economy. Red grape pomaces constitute a rich source of polyphenols, which have been shown to possess antioxidant properties and to provide benefits for human and animal health. The objective of this work was to obtain and characterise polyphenolic extracts from red grape pomaces via green supercritical CO₂ extraction using ethanol as a co-solvent, and to evaluate their antibacterial activity against susceptible and multidrug-resistant Escherichia coli strains of animal intestinal origin.

WINE RACKING IN THE WINERY AND THE USE OF INERT GASES: CONTROL AND OPTIMIZATION OF THE PROCESS

Atmospheric oxygen (O₂) generates oxidation in wines that affect their physicochemical and sensory evolution. The O₂ uptake in the different winemaking processes is generally considered to be negative for the sensory characteristics of white and rosé wines. Wine racking is a critical point of O₂ uptake, as the large surface area of the wine exposed during this operation and the inability to maintain an effective inert gas blanket over it.
The aim was to study the uptake of O₂ during the racking of a model wine as a reference and to compare with purging the destination tank with different inert gases.

THE POTENTIAL USE OF SOLUBLE POLYSACCHARIDES TO PREVENT THE OXIDATION OF ROSÉ WINES

Lately, rosé wine is rapidly increasing its popularity worldwide. Short-time macerations with the red skin of the grapes cause the partial extraction of anthocyanins, which are responsible for the pinki-sh-salmon hue of rosé wines. However, the low quantity of tannins (antioxidants) and richness in phenolic acids, which can be easily oxidized into yellowish pigments, tend to predispose rosé wines to an undesirable browning. Although the use of SO₂ for the prevention of oxidation is highly extended, this practice is expected to be reduced. Therefore, the search for alternative oenological adjuvants that prevent the oxidation and browning of rosé wines is highly desired.
