Le terre dei Lambruschi modenesi


[English version below]

La superficie vitata della provincia di Modena é per circa il 70% interessata dai Lambruschi, famiglia di vitigni tipica dei territori pianeggianti emiliani. Tra questi, i più rappresentativi sono il Lambrusco di Sorbara, il Lambrusco salamino e il Lambrusco grasparossa che, unico esempio, predilige gli ambienti collinari della provincia. Nel quinquennio 2001-2005 la Provincia di Modena ed il C.R.P.V. hanno coordinato la zonazione viticola di tutto il territorio dei Lambruschi modenesi, i cui risultati hanno consentito di individuare, in ciascuna zona D.O.C., alcune Terre in cui cias

The Lambruschi family, which is typical of the Emilia planes, covers some 70% of the viticultural area of Modena province. Within the Lambruschi family, Lambrusco di Sorbara, Lambrusco Salamino and Lambrusco Grasparossa are the most representative varieties and the latter, unic example, prefers the hilly areas of the province. In the 2001-2005 period, the Province of Modena and the C.R.P.V. have coordinated the zoning of the whole territory of Modena lambrusco cultivars whose findings identified in each DOC area some “Terre” in which each variety can give a product with recognizable qualitative and sensorial characteristics.

INTEGRAPE guidelines and tools: an effort of COST Action CA17111

INTEGRAPE was a European interdisciplinary network for “data integration to maximize the power of omics for grapevine improvement” (CA17111, https://integrape.eu/), funded by the European COST Association from September 2018 to 2022. This Action successfully developed guidelines and tools for data management and promoted the best practices in grapevine omics studies with a holistic future vision of: “Imagine having all data on grapevine accessible in a single place”.

The challenge of improving oenological quality in favorable conditions for productivity

Marselan (Cabernet-Sauvignon x Grenache), has been planted for more than 20 years now in Uruguay. Due to its good agronomic and oenological aptitudes under uruguayan conditions, it is currently the red variety with highest plantation rate. The objective of the study was to identify management practices, aimed at improving quality in highly productive vineyards, different fruit/leaf regulation methods were tested in southern Uruguay.

Successive surveys to define practices and decision process of winegrowers to produce “Vins de Pays Charentais” in the Cognac firewater vineyard area

Moderate wine consumption – part of a balanced diet or a health risk?

Consumption of wine/alcoholic beverages remains a topic of great uncertainty and controversy worldwide. The term “no safe level” dominates the media communication and policy ever since population studies in 2018 [1,2] were published, which denied the existence of a J-curve and suggested that ANY consumption of an alcoholic beverage is harmful to health. The scientific evidence accumulated during the past decades about the health benefits of moderate wine consumption, were questioned and drinking guidelines considered to be too loose.

Antimicrobial activity of oenological polyphenols against Gram positive and Gram negative intestinal multidrug-resistant bacteria

Bacterial antibiotic resistance is a major current health problem. Polyphenols have demonstrated antibacterial activity, and in this work we studied the effect of oenological polyphenols on the growth of intestinal multidrug-resistant strains of human and animal origin. Two Enterococcus faecium strains, resistant to vancomycin and other antibiotics, and four Escherichia coli strains, resistant to ampicillin and other antibiotics, were included in this study. All strains showed multidrug resistant phenotypes and genotypes to at least two antibiotic families.
