THE FLAVANOL PROFILE OF SKIN, SEED, WINES, AND POMACE ARE CHARACTERISTIC OF EACH TYPOLOGY AND CONTRIBUTES TO UNDERSTAND THE FLAVAN- 3-OLS EXTRACTION DURING RED WINEMAKING

Abstract

Wine flavanols are extracted from grape skin and seeds along red winemaking. Potentially, eight flavan-3-ol subunits may be present as monomers or as tannins constituents, being these catechin, epicathechin, gallocatechin, epigallocatechin end the gallates of the mentioned units. In this work the flavanol profiles of grape skins and seeds before (grapes) and after (pomace) red winemaking were studied together with the one in the corresponding wines. The trials were made over two vintages in Vitis vinifera cv. Tannat, Syrah and Marselan from Uruguay. A total of twenty wines were made under the same experimental conditions. The flavanol fractions were isolated from the samples using C18 solid phase extraction cartridges. A LC-MS system was used for analysis, composed by an HPLC couples to a mass spectroscopy system (triple-quadrupole ESI-MS/MS). Catechin and epicatechin registered the higher relative abundance in all typologies as expected. In the skins, the percentage of catechin was significantly higher than that of epicatechin while the opposite was observed in the seeds. In agreement with literature, the relative proportion of gallates was much higher in the seed than in the skins, while pro-dephinidins (PD%) exceeded 10% in skins and were found at traces levels in seeds. There were no differences among cultivars in the skins flavanol profile, but in the seeds, Marselan had a characteristic high proportion of catechin that almost matched that of epicatechin. Moreover, Tannat had higher proportion of epicatechin-gallate than catechin-gallate, while the opposite was registered in Syrah and Marselan. The seed-pomace flavan-3-ol monomers profile matched that of the seeds in the three-cultivar studied, showing that all compounds were extracted at the same rate along maceration. Nevertheless, the skin-pomace had a much higher proportion of epicatechin and of gallates that observed in skins, and a much lower of PD. These differences were of higher magnitude in the flavan-3-ol monomers profile, and in Marselan, which wines had a much higher contribution of flavanols from the seeds (observed as low PD% and high of gallates and epicatechin) than Tannat and Syrah. In Syrah and Tannat wines, the PD% was just slightly lower than in skins, while in Marselan they were much lower. Thus, skins adsorb fla-vanols released from seeds during maceration, while the trihydroxylated prodelphinidin monomers are the more easily extracted flavanols from skins.

PHOTO OXIDATION OF LUGANA WINES: INFLUENCE OF YEASTS AND RESIDUAL NITROGEN ON VSCS PROFILE

Lugana wines are made from Turbiana grapes. In recent times, many white and rosé wines are bottled and stored in flint glass bottles because of commercial appeal. However, this practice could worsen the aroma profile of the wine, especially as regards the development of volatile sulfur compounds (VSCs). This study aims to investigate the consequences of exposure to light in flint bottles on VSCs profile of Lugana wines fermented with two different yeasts and with different post-fermentation residual nitrogen.

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).

NEUROPROTECTIVE AND ANTI-INFLAMMATORY PROPERTIES OF HYDROXYTYROSOL: A PROMISING BIOACTIVE COMPONENT OF WINE

Hydroxytyrosol (HT) is a phenolic compound present in olives, virgin olive oil and wine. HT has attracted great scientific interest due to its biological activities which have been related with the ortho-dihydroxy conformation in the aromatic ring. In white and red wines, HT has been detected at concentrations ranging from 0.28 to 9.6 mg/L and its occurrence has been closely related with yeast metabolism of aromatic amino acids by Ehrlich pathway during alcoholic fermentation. One of the most promising properties of this compound is the neuroprotective activity against pathological mechanisms related with neurode-generative disorders including Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.

THE ROLE OF CELL WALL POLYSACCHARIDES IN THE EXTRACTION OF ANTHOCYANINS AND TANNINS: RESULTS, PERSPECTIVES OF A MORE POSITIVE CONTRIBUTION

The composition of grape berry cell walls was studied on two grape varieties, two years and two maturation levels at the same time as the extraction of anthocyanins and tannins. The chemical composition of skins, seeds, and pulps, focused on polyphenols and polysaccharides, was compared to the chemical composition in polyphenols after extraction from the skins in model solutions or after wine making of the berries. Polyphenols were mainly characterized by UPLC-MS and HPLC-SEC. Polysaccharides were characterized by analysis of the neutral sugar compositions, and also by the CoMPP (comprehensive micropolymer profiling) analysis, a new method which targets the functional groups of cell wall polysaccharides.

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.
