Nuove soluzioni e strumenti per l’agricoltura e la viticoltura di precisione


[English version below]

GEOSPHERA s. r. l. e TERR.A.IN. CNS, forti della grande esperienza dei loro collaboratori nell’ambito delle scienze naturali, della geologia, della geofisica e dell’informatica, garantiscono risposte innovative alle problematiche della moderna agricoltura rivolgendosi direttamente ai viticoltori, ai commercianti vinicoli ed ai liberi professionisti.
La necessità impellente di migliorare la produttività delle colture trova oggi un valido strumento nei nuovi metodi di perfezionamento della gestione del suolo agricolo che includono:
• mappaggio mediante remote sensing
• analisi e gestione dei dati mediante “geographic information systems” (GIS)
• analisi geofisiche mirate sito-specifiche
• carotaggi, trivellazioni ed escavazioni per determinare un “soil survey”

GEOSPHERA Ltd and TERR.A.IN. CNS, using the experience of its collaborators on natural, geological, geophysical and computer fields, provide solutions for Agriculture and precision viticulture farmers, growers, retailers and agricultural agronomic consultants.
The need to improve the productivity of crops, find today large aid in new methods of study and soil management, including:
• soil mapping using remote sensing
• analysis and data management using geographic information systems (GIS)
• geophysical site-specific targeted sampling
• drilling and excavation for the soil survey

Composition and molar mass distribution of different must and wine colloids

A major problem for winemakers is the formation of proteinaceous haze after bottling. Although the exact mechanisms remain unclear, this haze is formed by unfolding and agglomeration of grape proteins, being additionally influenced by numerous further factors.


The overall quality of aged wines is in part due to the development of complex aromas over a long period (1.) The apparition of this aromatic complexity depends on multiple chemical reactions that include the liberation of odorous compounds from non-odorous precursors. One example of this phenomenon is found in dimethyl sulphide (DMS) which, with its characteristic odor truffle, is a known contributor to the bouquet of premium aged wine bouquet (1). DMS supposedly accumulates during the ten first years of ageing thanks to the hydrolysis of its precursor dimethylsulfoniopropionate (DMSp.) DMSp is a possible secondary by-product from the degradation of S-methylmethionine (SMM), an amino acid iden- tified in grapes (2), which can be metabolized by yeast during alcoholic fermentation.

Il piano regolatore delle citta’ del vino: una metodologia di lavoro

Sono quattro i terni fondamentali di questo progetto: la sostenibilità; la conoscenza; la parte­cipazione come strumento anche di riduzione della burocrazia e il tema della coerenza delle politiche di settore e della collaborazione fra gli Enti.

Influence of wood chips addition during alcoholic fermentation on wine phenolic composition

This study investigates the effect of wood chips addition during the alcoholic fermentation on the phenolic
composition of the produced wines. A series of wood chips, originating from American, French, Slavonia
oak and Acacia were added at the beginning of wine alcoholic fermentation. Besides, a mixture consisting
of 50% French and 50% Americal oak chips were added during the experimentation. The wine samples
were analyzed one month after the end of malolactic fermentation, examining various chemical
parameters such as total anthocyanins, total phenolic content, tannins combined with protein (BSA) and
ellagitannin content.

Fleurtai, Soreli and Tocai Friulano: perspectives for quality integration of wine together with protection of the DOCG Lison Classico appellation

In modern viticulture, sustainability must be considered not only into the winery, but in the vineyard as well, being that with the most attentive interventions in order to protect the environment. In this context, the new “fungi resistant” varieties represent a valid option for reducing the negative environmental impact of agrochemicals used in viticulture, including those ones used in organic farming (given the copper accumulation into soils). Several application studies have demonstrated the enological validity of many resistant varieties, both in price and as a blend. Also, under the production point of view, the feasibility and economical sustainability of the new resistant varieties was verified. The aim of this work was to deepen the knowledge on the organoleptic characteristics of wines obtained from the Fleurtai and Soreli varieties and to compare them with the wine obtained from Tocai Friulano, the mother variety in the area destined for the production of the Lison Classico DOCG appellation. The purpose of the work is then to verify the possibility of introducing resistant varieties into the DOCG while maintaining the wine name of the appellation linked to the territory.
