Le aree viticole storiche nel mondo: i loro vitigni, la loro protezione e la tipicità dei vini in esse ottenuti


Il tema da trattare si riferisce ai vari ecosistemi viticoli mondiali, ovviamente non facilmente sintetizzabili in una relazione. Sostanzialmente si richiama, pertanto, ai terroirs. La definizione di terroir comprende i fattori naturali (vitigno, clima, suolo) e quelli antropici (pratiche viticole e enologiche) (fig. 1).
Nella prima parte della relazione si esaminerà la diffusione del vitigno nel mondo, nella seconda le modalità di protezione a livello mondiale e nella terza la tipicità dei vini di alcune zone storiche.

Today, this estimation is performed mainly using manual methods based on destructive bunch sampling.

Importance of the Terror Variability Map (TVM) in Precision viticulture (PV): choice of methodology for soil classification

The Precision Viticulture (PV) is defined “as a management system that is information and technology based, is site specific and uses one or more of the following sources of data: soils, vigour, nutrients, pests, moisture, and yield among others, for optimum profitability, sustainability, and protection of the environment” (OIV, 2018, in process). The elements mentioned in the definition are an important part of the terroir components. The terroir is a tool In Viticulture, it is the analysis and study unit, and the variability of a certain situation can be due to any difference in every element or property of each factor that constitutes it, including the management.The soil and its management are those that bring the most variability to terroir.
