Impact of cover crop in vineyard on the musts volatile profile of Vitis vinifera L. Cv Syrah

Abstract

Grape aromatic characteristics are very important for the production of quality wines. The concentrations of volatile compounds in grape berries from vines with cover crops have been scarcely studied. For this reason, the aim of this work was to evaluate the influence of “Zulla” cover crop on the volatile profiles of organically grown Shyraz variety grapes. For this purpose, volatile profiles of grapes obtained from vines with three different amount of cover crop (one line, two lines and four lines) and without cover crop, over two harvests (2019 and 2020) were determined. The grape samples came from Jerez a warm climate zone. Must volatile compounds were determined by sequential sorptive extraction with Twisters by immersion (SBSE) and headspace (HSSE), followed by GC-MS analysis [1]. A total of 159 compounds were determined and, most of them were influenced by the presence of cover crop. The amount of methyl ester was directly correlated with the amount of “Zulla” cover crop. The results of principal component analysis (PCA) showed that PC1 grouped the samples according harvest and PC2 according to amount of cover crop, separating clearly the samples obtained without cover crop, in both harvests. It was observed a reduction of free volatile compounds when the amount of cover crop applied increased, in both harvests. Then, cover crop had an effect over volatile profile of Shyraz grapes.

UNRAVELING THE CHEMICAL MECHANISM OF MND FORMATION IN RED WINE DURING BOTTLE AGING : IDENTIFICATION OF A NEW GLUCOSYLATED HYDROXYKETONE PRO-PRECURSOR

During bottle aging, the development of wine aroma through low and gradual oxygen exposure is often positive in red wines, but can be unfavorable in many cases, resulting in a rapid loss of fresh, fruity flavors. Prematurely aged wines are marked by intense prune and fig aromatic nuances that dominate the desirable bouquet achieved through aging (Pons et al., 2013). This aromatic defect, in part, is caused by the presence of 3-methyl-2,4-nonanedione (MND). MND content was shown to be lower in nonoxidized red wines and higher in oxidized red wines, which systematically exceeds the odor detection threshold (62 ng/L).

L’effetto paesaggio sul sistema delle preferenze: i vini veneti tra evocazioni di consumo e determinanti di scelta

La presente relazione mira ad individuare il ruolo del paesaggio nella determinazione delle preferenze della domanda, in modo da far emergere i fattori immateriali che definiscono il valore territoriale dei vini tipici su cui far leva per le strategie di marketing. L’analisi ha riguardato vini tipici del Veneto e coinvolto soggetti non provenienti da questa Regione. Ne è emerso l’effetto amplificativo dell’immagine del paesaggio sulla qualità percepita.
