Zonazione dell’area viticola doc durello

Abstract

[English version below]

Il lavoro di zonazione riveste un ruolo importante per capire le potenzialità e la vocazionalità di una specifica area viticola. La viticoltura dovrebbe essere vista in funzione dell’obiettivo enologico che si vuole realizzare e quindi particolare importanza riveste il risultato delle vinificazioni delle uve provenienti dai vigneti delle diverse aree della zona di produzione oggetto d’indagine. La zonazione dell’area a DOC Monti Lessini Durello ha preso in esame la varietà “Durella”, vitigno autoctono del territorio, che rappresenta la maggior parte della produzione vitivinicola della zona. Durante il quadriennio 2002-2005 si sono effettuati i rilievi vegeto-produttivi e le vinificazioni delle uve di questa varietà provenienti dalle 15 aree individuate attraverso un’indagine podologica del territorio di coltivazione Monti Lessini Durello, che si estende su un’ampia superficie nelle province di Verona e Vicenza. Un aspetto innovativo di questo lavoro e di aver introdotto, sebbene solo per un’annata, la valutazione del potenziale enologico del vino anche attraverso il processo di spumantizzazione con il metodo classico. In questo modo si è potuto poi verificare, attraverso l’analisi sensoriale, non solo le peculiarità delle diverse zone ma anche la loro attitudine al processo di spumantizzazione, confrontando la valutazione dei vini fermi con quelli spumante di ogni singola area vocazionale. Tale analisi ha evidenziato al di là delle diverse caratteristiche di ogni singola area l’attitudine di questo vitigno a dare origine a vini spumanti di elevata qualità.

The task of zoning plays a significant role in understanding the potential and suitability of a specific vine-growing area. Viticulture should always be considered in the light of the oenological objectives that one has in mind and the results of the vinification of grapes from different areas within the production zone under consideration are therefore of particular importance. The zoning of the Monti Lessini Durello D.O.C. area focused on the indigenous “Durella” variety, which is responsible for the majority of the zone’s viti-vinicultural production. During the four-year period of 2002-2005 we carried out surveys regarding vegetative and fruit yields, as well as vinifying grapes of this variety from the 15 areas we identified as a result of a pedological study of the region for the cultivation of Monti Lessini Durello, which covers quite a large area in the Provinces of Verona and Vicenza. An innovative aspect of this work was that – if only for one vintage – we also introduced an evaluation of the various wines’ oenological potential by subjecting them to prise de mousse. In this way, we were able to test, by means of sensory analysis, not only the peculiarities of the different zones but also their appropriateness for producing sparkling wines, comparing our evaluation of the still wine and the sparkling one from each specific production area. This analysis highlighted – apart from the different characteristics of each individual area – this variety’s aptitude for producing sparkling wines of very high quality.

Effects of long-term drought stress on soil microbial communities from a Syrah cultivar vineyard

Changes in the rainfall and temperature patterns affect the increase of drought periods becoming one of the major constraints to assure agricultural and crop resilience in the Mediterranean regions. Beside the adaptation of agricultural practices, also the microbial compartment associated to plants should be considered in the crop management. It is known that the microbial community change according to several factors such as soil composition, agricultural management system, plant variety and rootstock.

Use of UHPH to improve the implantation of non-Saccharomyces yeasts

Ultra High-Pressure Homogenization (UHPH) is a high-pressure pumping at 300 MPa (>200 MPa) with a subsequent depressurization against a highly resistant valve made of tungsten carbide covered by ceramic materials or carbon nanoparticles. The intense impact and shear efforts produce the nano-fragmentation of colloidal biopolymers including the elimination of microorganism (pasteurization or sterilization depending on in-valve temperature) and the inactivation of enzymes.
