Riqualificazione dell’antica “Terra di Lavoro” attraverso il rilancio della cultivar Abbuoto


[English version below]

L’agricoltura dei territori costituenti l’antica “Terra di Lavoro”, territorio che oggi è compreso nella provincia di Caserta ed in parte di quelle di Frosinone e Latina, ha subito a partire dal 1970, un’involuzione, principalmente a causa dell’urbanizzazione; solamente la coltivazione della vite ha mantenuto nel tempo la sua consistenza, ed in particolare della cultivar Abbuoto.
Nel presente lavoro si è studiato questo vitigno autoctono, ed il vino relativo, analizzando anche la possibilità, attraverso il suo rilancio, di riqualificare nella globalità questo importante territorio. Ciò ha suggerito l’urgente necessità di proporre un progetto che tenga conto del fatto che la presenza del vitigno Abbuoto rappresenta per il territorio una grande opportunità di crescita e di sviluppo socio-economico, inserendolo in un progetto di sviluppo turistico.

The agriculture of territories of the ancient one “Terra di Lavoro”, territory that today it is inclusive in the province of Caserta and partly of those of Frosinone and Latin, has suffered, beginning from 1970, an involution, mainly because of the urbanization; only the cultivation of the grapevine has maintained in the time its consistence, and particularly of the cultivar Abbuoto.
In the present job is studied this autochtonous vine and the relative wine, also analyzing the possibility, through its raising, to retrain, in the globality, this important territory. This has suggested the urgent necessity to propose a project that keeps in mind of the fact that the presence of the vine Abbuoto represents for the territory a great opportunity of growth and social-economic development, inserting it in a project of tourist development.

Physiological and growth reaction of Shiraz/101-14 Mgt to row orientation and soil water status

Advanced knowledge on grapevine row orientation is required to improve establishment, management and outcomes of vineyards on terroirs with different environmental conditions (climate, soil, topography) and in view of a future change to more extreme climatic conditions. The purpose of this study was to determine the combined effect of row orientation, plant water status and ripeness level on the physiological and viticultural reaction of Shiraz/101-14 Mgt.

Effects of mechanical leafing and deficit irrigation on Cabernet Sauvignon grown in warm climate of California

San Joaquin Valley accounts for 40% of wine grape acreage and produces 70% of wine grape in California. Fruit quality is one of most important factors which impact the economical sustainability of farming wine grapes in this region. Due to the recent drought and expected labor cost increase, the wine industry is thrilled to understand how to improve fruit quality while maintaining the yield with less water and labor input. The present study aims to study the interactive effects of mechanical leafing and deficit irrigation on yield and berry compositions of Cabernet Sauvignon grown in warm climate of California.

The effects of cane girdling on berry texture properties and the concentration of some aroma compounds in three table grape cultivars

The marketability of the table grapes is highly influenced by the consumer demand; therefore the market value of the table grapes is mainly characterized by its berry size, colour, taste and texture. Girdling could cause accumulation of several components in plants above the ringing of the phloem including clusters and resulting improved maturity. The aim of the experiments was to examine the effect of girdling on berry texture characteristics and aroma concentration.

Application of a fluorescence-based method to evaluate the ripening process and quality of Pinot Blanc grape

The chemical composition of grape berries at harvest is one of the most important factors that should be considered to produce high quality wines. Among the different chemical classes which characterize the grape juice, the polyphenolic compound, such as flavonoids, contribute to the final taste and color of wines. Recently, an innovative non-destructive method, based on chlorophyll fluorescence, was developed to estimate the phenolic maturity of red grape varieties through the evaluation of anthocyanins accumulated in the berry skin. To date, only few data are available about the application of this method on white grape varieties.

Different yield regulation strategies in semi-minimal-pruned hedge (SMPH) and impact on bunch architecture

Yields in the novel viticulture training system Semi-Minimal-Pruned Hedge (SMPH) are generally higher compared to the traditional Vertical Shoot Positioning (VSP). Excessive yields have a negative impact on the vine and wine quality, which can result in substantial losses in yield in subsequent vintages (alternate bearing) or penalties in fruit quality. Therefore yield regulation is essential. The bunch architecture in SMPH differs from VSP. Generally there is a higher amount but smaller bunches with lower single berry weights in SMPH compared to VSP.
