EFFECTS OF WINEMAKING FACTORS AND AGEING ON THE POLYPHENOLIC AND COLORIMETRIC PROFILES IN RED WINES PRONE TO COLOUR INSTABILITY

Abstract

The effects of (A) grape freezing, and (B) malolactic fermentation, have been evaluated on the chemical and colorimetric profiles of red wines from Schiava grossa cv. grapes, thus prone to colour instability. The aim was to observe if specific variables (e.g. grape freezing) could improve the extraction and stability of pigments. The samples were studied from musts up to twelve months in bottle. The study was conducted with independent parallel micro-vinifications (12 = 4 theses x 3 replicates) under strictly-controlled conditions. The measured parameters included: 1) sugars, organic acids and %ABV (measured by specific enzymatic methods or by OIV reference methods), 2) dissolved oxygen (measured according to OIV protocols), 3) semi-quantitative determination of pigments, profile of non-anthocyanidin phenols, and profile of condensed tannins (LC-QqQ/MS [1]), spectrophotometric indexes (Hue and Intensity), colorimetric indexes (CIELab parameters), and the volatile profiles (GCxGC-ToF/MS [2]). A striking relation among the abundances of four anthocyanidin monoglucosides (peonidin-3-glu, malvidin-3-glu, petunidin-3-glu, and cyanidin-3-glu) has been observed in the musts from frozen grapes, but not in wines from frozen or non-frozen grapes. Cyclic procyanidins showed neither significant differences in concentration in must and wine due to any specific applied factor, nor due to specific treatments (such as with bentonites), proving again their applicability as markers for the grape variety in wine [3]. A substantial drop in peonidin-3-glu over the vinification (the main anthocyanin in Schiava cv. grapes) was studied in relation to the applied study factors. Grape freezing increased the extraction of peonidin-3-glu in the must, though the rate of its subsequent loss was faster than in wines from non-frozen grapes. Nonethe-less, peonidin-3-glucoside was still more concentrated in the wines from frozen grapes than in wines from non-frozen grapes up to wine bottling. The wines made from frozen grapes and without malolac-tic fermentation had the highest colorimetric parameters a* (green→red), ΔE* (difference in colour), C* (chromaticity), and ΔH* (difference in tone) colorimetric parameters. b* (blue→yellow) was highest in wines from frozen grapes, but regardless of the application or not of the malolactic fermentation.

OENOLOGICAL AND SUSTAINABILITY POTENTIAL OF WINES PRODUCED FROM DISEASE RESISTANT GRAPE CULTIVARS (PIWI WINES)

The strategy for sustainability in the wine sector of the EU refers to a set of practices and principles that aim to minimize the negative impact of wine production on the environment, social and economic sustainability. Sustainable wine production involves a range of practices that are designed to reduce waste, conserve resources, and promote the well-being of workers and communities.

PHOTOCHEMICAL DEGRADATION OF TRYPTOPHAN IN MODEL WINE: IMPACT OF HEAVY METALS AND OXYGEN ON 2-AMINOACETOPHENONE FORMATION

The wine industry worldwide faces more and more challenges due to climate change, such as increased dryness in some areas, water stress, sunburn and early harvesting during hot summer temperatures¹. One of the resulting problems for the wine quality might be a higher prevalence of the untypical aging off-flavor (ATA)². A substance, which Rapp and Versini made responsible for ATA, is the 2-aminoace-tophenone (2-AAP)³. 2-AAP in wine causes a naphthalene, wet towels, wet wool, acacia flower or just a soapy note⁴.

AN AUTOMATIC CANOPY COOLING SYSTEM TO COPE WITH THE THERMAL-RADIATIVE STRESSES IN THE PIGNOLETTO WHITE GRAPE

In recent years characterized by hot dry summers, the implementation of innovative irrigation tools in the vineyard represents a crucial challenge to ensure optimal production and to avoid excess of water consumption. It is known that the grapevine reacts to multiple stresses – i.e., high temperatures and wa- ter shortage – through adaptive mechanisms that are detrimental to the yield. Furthermore, this condi- tion is usually aggravated by high solar radiation, which could negatively affect the phenolic composi- tion of the grapes. Therefore, a cooling system has been developed aiming to reduce bunches’ sunburn damage.

Beyond liking scores: the importance of the drinking experience to understand our consumers

The presentation will approach the understanding of wine consumers´ perception based on the experiential model suggested by Warell (2008). In this framework, wine consumption gives rise to a
variety of experiences related to the perception, understanding, and judgment of the product. These
multidimensional facets of the drinking experience can be explored by measuring affective, cognitive,
and sensory responses of consumers, which are shown to be stable regardless of the social context.

DISCRIMINATION OF BOTRYTIS CINEREA INFECTED GRAPES USING UNTARGE-TED METABOLOMIC ANALYSIS WITH DIRECT ELECTROSPRAY IONISATION MASS SPECTROMETRY

Infection of grapes (Vitis vinifera) by Botrytis cinerea (grey mould) is a frequent occurrence in vineyards and during prolonged wet and humid conditions can lead to significant detrimental impact on yield and overall quality. Growth of B. cinerea causes oxidisation of phenolic compounds resulting in a loss of colour and formation of a suite of off-flavours and odours in wine made from excessively infected fruit. Apart from wine grapes, developing post-harvest B. cinerea infection in high-value horticultural products during storage, shipment and marketing may cause significant loss in fresh fruits, vegetables and other crops. A rapid and sensitive assessment method to detect, screen and quantify fungal infection would greatly assist viticultural growers and winemakers in determining fruit quality.
