EFFECTS OF HYDROXYTYROSOL ON THE CHEMICAL PROFILE AND SENSORY ATTRIBUTES OF A RED TUSCAN WINE

Abstract

The chemical profile and sensory attributes were studied in Borrigiano IGT Toscana wine (Italy), a blend of Sangiovese 85% and Cabernet Sauvignon 15% grapes harvested in September 2020, where 2-(3,4-dihydroxyphenyl)ethanol (hydroxytyrosol, HT, [1]) was added to a 750-ml wine bottle in 3 different amounts (30, 60, 120 mg) and compared with the control (no HT addition). The study aimed to evaluate whether Polyphenol-HT1®, a high purity HT (>99%) produced by Nova Mentis using biotechnology, could be used as a supplement to sulfites and how it would impact the sensory and chemical profile of this wine [2]. Each sample was prepared in triplicate. The chemical profile and sensory analysis were studied every three months (T1, T3 and T6) for a total of six months of storage. HT stability and evolution of sensory attributes were also investigated. The oenological parameters (such as free and total SO₂, residual sugars, organic acids) were evaluated with multiparametric wine analyser, the dissolved oxygen was measured according to OIV protocols, and HPLC-DAD was used to evaluate the phenolic profile [3]. To explore the effects of HT addition, Multiple Factor Analysis (MFA) was applied. The Projective Mapping sensory protocol [4], combined with CATA (check-all-that-apply) method, were chosen to achieve a rapid categorization and characterization of Borrigiano wine using an internal panel of fourteen assessors (aged 25- 40 years old). Procrustean Multiple Factor Analysis (pMFA) and CLUSTATIS methods [5] were used to manage the sensory data. Evaluators were asked to rank wine samples according to their preferences and a frequency table was constructed. The HT addition (at different concentrations) and storage time influenced the chemical profiles and sensory attributes. After six months of storage, free sulfur dioxide remained higher in wines with the highest HT content. On the contrary, the dissolved oxygen was higher in the control wines, and was negatively correlated with the HT content. Acetic acid, which is the most important quality parameter of wine, was higher in the control wine samples. The assessors preferred the samples with the highest amount of HT; in fact, this wine gained first position for a greater number of times in the ranking constructed by the panel. The samples with the highest amount of HT had the lowest values of astringency, the highest level of vegetal, red fruit, dried fruit and wood aroma and red fruit flavour.

ACIDIC AND DEMALIC SACCHAROMYCES CEREVISIAE STRAINS FOR MANAGING PROBLEMS OF ACIDITY DURING THE ALCOHOLIC FERMENTATION

In a recent study several genes controlling the acidification properties of the wine yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae have been identified by a QTL approach [1]. Many of these genes showed allelic variations that affect the metabolism of malic acid and the pH homeostasis during the alcoholic fermentation. Such alleles have been used for driving genetic selection of new S. cerevisiae starters that may conversely acidify or deacidify the wine by producing or consuming large amount of malic acid [2]. This particular feature drastically modulates the final pH of wine with difference of 0.5 units between the two groups.

GRAPE SPIRITS FOR PORT WINE PRODUCTION: SCREENING THEIR AROMA PROFILE

Port is a fortified wine, produced from grapes grown in the demarcated Douro region. The fortification process consists in the addition of a grape spirit (77% v/v) to the fermenting juice for fermentation interruption, resulting in remaining residual sugars in the wine and increased alcohol content (19-22%). The approval of grape spirits follows the Appellation (D.O. Port wine) rules1 and it is currently carried out based on analytical control and on sensory evaluation done by the public Institute that upholds the control of the quality of Douro Appellation wines. However, the producers of Port wines would like to have more information about quality markers of grape spirits.

THE EFFECT OF BENTONITE FINING ON THE VOLATILE AND NON-VOLATILE PROFILE OF ITALIAN WHITE WINES

Marselan wines have an unusual high proportion of seed derived tannins from grapes having high proportions of skins, which are rich in tannins. But the causes behind this characteristic have not yet been identified. In vintage 2023 wines were made at experimental scale (9 kg by experimental unit) from Arinarnoa, Marselan and Tannat Vitis vinifera grape cultivars by traditional maceration, and by techniques aimed to increase the wine content in skin derived tannin: addition of extraction enzymes, addition at vatting of grape-skin enological tannins, or by extended maceration, known to increase the seed derived tannin contents of wines. Macerations were of 7 days, except in the extended macerations that were of 15 days.

OPTIMIZATION OF EXTRACTION AND DEVELOPMENT OF AN LC-HRMS METHOD TO QUANTIFY GLUTATHIONE IN WHITE WINE LEES AND YEAST DERIVATIVES

Glutathione is a natural tripeptide composed of l-glutamate, l-cysteine and glycine, found in various foods and beverages. In particular, glutathione can be found in its reduced (GSH) or oxidized form (GSSG) in must, wine or yeasts¹. Numerous studies have highlighted the importance of GSH in wine quality and aging potential². During winemaking, especially during aging on lees, GSH helps prevent the harmful effects of oxidation on the aroma of the wine³. Nevertheless, the amounts of GSH/GSSG present in wine lees are often unknown and the choice of operating conditions (quantity of lees and aging time) remains empirical.

WINE WITHOUT ADDED SO₂: OXYGEN IMPACT AND EVOLUTION ON THE POLYPHENOLIC COMPOSITION DURING RED WINE AGING

SO₂ play a major role in the stability and wine during storage. Nowadays, the reduction of chemical input during red winemaking and especially the removing SO₂ is a growing expectation from the consumers. Winemaking without SO₂ is a big challenge for the winemakers since the lack of SO₂ affects directly the wine chemical evolution such as the phenolic compounds as well as its microbiological stability.
