Effect of Saccharomyces species interaction on alcoholic fermentation behaviour and aromatic profile of Sauvignon blanc wine

Abstract

Enhancing the sensory profile of wine by the use of different microorganism has been always a challenge in winemaking. The aim of our work was to evaluate the impact of different fermentation schemes by using mixed and pure cultures of different Saccharomyces species to Sauvignon blanc wine chemical composition and sensory profile. Sauvignon blanc must has been inoculated with mixed and pure cultures of S. pastorianus and S. cerevisiae. For the mixed fermentation schemes, one strain of S. pastorianus has been inoculated under different frequencies (99%, 95% , 90%, 80% and 70%) with two strains of S. cerevisiae. Totally 13 fermentations trials, 3 monocultures and 10 mixed cultures, were realised in triplicate. The fermentation kinetics has been controlled by density measurement and classic oenological analysis (residual sugars, total acidity, volatile acidity, malic acid degradation, glycerol production etc) were performed based on OIV protocols.The population dynamics was conducted by the specific interdelta PCR reaction of the Saccharomyces species in the beginning and in the end of the fermentation process. Volatile aromatic compounds such as esters, superior alcohols and thiols were evaluated by GC/MS analysis. Sensory assesement was carried out for all wines by trained panel. All fermentation trials lead to dryness and the fermentation lasted from 9 days to 13 days. The population dynamics analysis revealed that the S. cerevisiae strain was the most predominant in the end of the fermentation process in any inoculation ratio tested. The wines fermented with S. pastorianus, either in pure or mixed cultures, were characterised by significant lower acetic acid production and greater malic acid degradation compared to the wines fermented with S. cerevisiae strains. The aromatic profile of the produced wines was highly affected from the inoculation ratio while the effect of the S. cerevisiae used strain was less important. Our study based on different fermentation frequencies of mixed cultures of S. pastorianus and S. cerevisiae strains, revealed the impact of the inoculation ratio on the 30 tested volatiles compounds, correlated to Sauvignon blanc aromatic profile. The species of S. pastorianus starts to become an interesting candidate for co-inoculation with S. cerevisae strains, able to boost varietal aromas intensity.

Bio‐metaethics viticulture proposed by the Giesco. Direct charter with producers. Example of evaluation of training systems

The key points of the current GiESCO charter ‘BIO‐MetaEthics’ are exposed. The new development in cooperation with Giovanni Cargnello is to apply the principles and the content into the practice by establishing a direct contract with producers and other actors of the wine sector. An evaluation sheet is proposed and tested in a new advanced vineyard. For illustrating the methodology of evaluation, the example of the choice of the training systems is detailed on a wide range of situations. 

Ampelograpic and genetic characterisation of grapevine genetic resources from Ozalj-Vivodina region (Croatia)

Ozalj- vivodina region is small vine growing area (only about 100 hectares of vineyards), but with significant number of old, ancient vineyards planted between 50 and 100 years ago. Trend of abandoning or replanting ancient vineyards takes place for the last 30 years. This trend results in grapevine germplasm erosion because traditional varieties are replaced with well known international varieties.Few known traditional varieties are dominantly present in ancient vineyards together with many others of unknown identity. Historical data about prevalence and characteristic of varieties on this area are very poor.

The influence of initial phenolic content on the outcome of pinot noir wine microoxygenation

Over the years, microoxygenation (MOX) has become a popular vinification technique to improve wine sensory qualities. However, among the impacting factors reported

A methyl salicylate glycoside mapping of monovarietal Italian white wines.

Among the main plant secondary metabolites, glycosides have a key-role in wine chemistry. Glycosides are non-volatile complex composed of a non-sugar component (aglycone) bound to one or more carbohydrates.

The informative potential of remote and proximal sensing application on vertical- and overhead-trained vineyards in Northeast Italy

The application of remote and proximal sensing in viticulture have been demonstrated as a fast and efficient method to monitor vegetative and physiological parameters of grapevines. The collection of these parameters could be highly valuable to derive information on associated yield and quality traits in the vineyard. However, to leverage the informative potential of the sensing systems, a series of preliminary evaluations should be carried out to standardize working protocols for the specific features of a winegrowing area (e.g., pedoclimate, topography, cultivar, training system). This work aims at evaluating remote and proximal sensing systems for their performance and suitability to provide information on the vegetative, physiological, yield and qualitative aspects of vines and grapes as a function of different training systems in the Valpolicella wine region (Verona, Italy).
