Influence of different strains of lab on quality of catarratto wine produced in sicily

Abstract

AIM: Lactiplantibacillus plantarum and Oenococcus oeni species is worldwide used as starter for malolactic fermentation [1, 2]. For the first time, in the present study, the impact of malolactic fermentation on Sicilian white wines of the Catarratto cultivar was evaluated by using different commercial LAB strains. Particularly, L. plantarum (ML PrimeTM, Lallemand wine), O. oeni (Lalvin VP41®, O-Mega® and PN4®, Lallemand wine) were used as starter strains for malolactic fermentation.

METHODS: the Catarratto must, after clarification, were aliquoted in steel tanks (2.5 hL). Each tank (5 trials: M8-M12) was inoculated with the indigenous selected strain CS182 Saccharomyces cerevisiae. After 24 hours, ML PrimeTM (M8) , Lalvin VP41® (M9), O-Mega® (M10) and PN4® (M11) were inoculated singularly into grape must. For the control trial, were not added with malolactic starter (M12-MLc). During the alcoholic fermentation, the microbiological and chemical-physical parameters were evaluated. After six months from the date of bottling, the wines were subjected to volatile organic compound investigation and sensory analysis.

RESULTS: grape must showed values of malic acid of 1.58 g/l. Trial M8 inoculated with L. plantarum showed a significant reduction of malic acid reaching values of 1 g/L, three days after inoculum. Trial M9, M10 and M11, inoculated with O. oeni, showed a rapid consumption of malic acid after 15 days of AF and completed malolactic fermentation one week after AF. The VOCs present in highest concentration were 3-methyl-1-butanol in all trials, phenylethyl alcohol in trials M8, M9, and M12, and 2,3-butanediol in M11. The sensorial analysis conducted on the different experimental wines showed a tendency of panelists to prefer trials M8. In fact, wines with the addition of MLPrimeTM, obtained the highest scores for the attributes flavor and odour overall quality, intensity and complexity odours. No unpleasant odours and/or flavours were recorded. Acetic acid content was less than 0.3 g/l in all experimental trials.

CONCLUSIONS

The inoculation of the different commercial LAB strains allowed the malo-lactic fermentation of all wines. L. plantarum proved to be an effective alternative to O. oeni in order to start the malolactic fermentation and the wines were appreciated at sensorial level

Influence of two yeast strains and different nitrogen nutrition on the aromatic compounds in Lugana wine

Lugana Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) wines are made from Turbiana grapes. The aroma of Lugana wines results from the combined contribution of esters, terpenes, norisprenoids, sulfur compounds and the benzenoid methyl salicylate. This study aims to investigate how volatile aroma compounds are affected by different nitrogen supplies and yeast strains.

Vineyard innovative tools based on the integration of earth observation services and in-field sensors (VitiGEOSS project)

Climate change is having an unprecedented impact on the wine industry, which is one of the major agricultural sectors around the world. Global warming, combined with the variation in rainfall patterns and the increase in frequency of extreme weather events, is significantly influencing vine physiology and exposing, more frequently, plants to severe biotic and abiotic stresses. This represents a challenge for viticulturists who need to take complex decisions to adjust vineyard management and achieve oenological goals.

Technological possibilities of grape marc cell walls as wine fining agent. Effect on wine phenolic composition

Fining is a technique that is used to remove unwanted wine components that affect clarification, astringency, color, bitterness, and aroma. Fining involves the addition of adsorptive or reactive material in order to reduce or eliminate the presence of certain less desirable wine components and to ensure that a wine remains in a particular stable state for a given period of time Recently concerns have been raised about the addition of animal proteins, such as gelatin, to wine due to the disease known as bovine spongiform encephalopathy (Mad Cow disease). Although the origin of gelatins has been moved to porcine, winemakers are asking for substitute products with properties and application protocols similar to the traditional animal-derived ones, making the use of plant-derived proteins in fining a practically viable possibility. As a consequence, various fining agents derived from plants have been proposed, including proteins from cereals, legumes, and potato.
