Caratterizzazione vitivinicola delle “Terre del Piacenziano” ricomprese nella zona D.O.C. “colli piacentini” attraverso l’analisi sensoriale dei vini prodotti

Abstract

[English version below]

I territori della Riserva Geologica del Piacenziano sono parte del pedeappennino piacentino e sono noti per essere la culla del Pliocene, quel periodo di storia della Terra compreso tra 5.3 e 1.8 milioni di anni fa. Gli strati argillosi e sabbiosi riccamente fossiliferi qui presenti sono da sempre oggetto di studi geo-paleontologici tant’è che il Pliocene medio (3.6-2.6 milioni di anni fa) è internazionalmente noto come Piacenziano. Le analisi sensoriali strutturate dei vini qui prodotti hanno evidenziato, soprattutto per il vino Monterosso, le positive peculiarità dei loro caratteri sensoriali e descritto gli scostamenti significativi del loro profilo sensoriale rispetto agli altri vini presi a riferimento.

The particular soils of the of the Piacenziano Geologic Reserve are internationally recognized with the name “Piacenziano” (medium Pliocene, between 3.6 and 2.6 million years ago). The structured sensory analysis of the wines of the Piacenziano has shown, mainly for the Monterosso white wine, the most important sensorial descriptors and the significative differences of the sensory profile with the other wines produced in the zone.

Assessing reserve nitrogen at dormancy for predicting spring nitrogen status in Chardonnay grapevines

Nitrogen (N) supply strongly influences vine productivity and berry composition, matching availability and uptake requirements of vines during the growing season is essential to optimize vine nutrition. The nutritional status of grapevines is commonly assessed by the determination of petiole nutrient concentrations at flowering. The reserve N could also be an earlier indicator for grapevine N status, this work aimed to assess how the petiole levels relate to these perennial N reserves.

PHENOLICS DYNAMICS OF BERRIES FROM VITIS VINIFERA CV SYRAH GRAFTED ON TWO CONTRASTING ROOTSTOCKS UNDER COMBINED SALINITY AND WATER STRESSORS AND ITS EFFECT ON WINE QUALITY

Wine regions are getting warmer as average temperatures continue raising affecting grape growth, berry composition and wine production. Berry quality was evaluated in plants of Vitis vinifera cv Syrah grafted on two rootstocks, Paulsen (PL1103) and SO4, and grown under two salinity concentrations (LS:0.7dS/m and HS:2.5dSm-1) in combination with two irrigation regimes (HW:133% and CW:100%), being the seasonal water application 483mm (control, 100%). Spectrophotometer measurements from berry skin during veraison and harvest stages and from “young” wine samples, were indicative of the stressors effect and the mediation of the rootstocks. At veraison (i) total phenolics content were high under LSHW (0.7dSm-1 and high water conditions) for SO4 and PL1103.

2-YEARS STUDY ON COMPARISON BETWEEN THE VOLATILE CHEMICAL PROFILE OF TWO DIFFERENT BLENDS FOR THE ENHANCEMENT OF “VALPOLICELLA SUPERIORE”

Valpolicella is a famous wine producing region in the province of Verona owing its fame above all to the production of two Protected Designation of Origins (PDOs) withered wines: Amarone and Recioto. In recent years, however, the wineries have been interested in the enhancement and qualitative increase of another PDO, Valpolicella Superiore. All the Valpolicella PDOs wines are produced with a unique grape blend, mainly Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella and a range of other minor varieties.From 2019 Valpolicella product regulation has changed the grape proportion of the blend allowing new composition parameters of wines. For this reason, studying the volatile chemical profiles to support wine makers in the effort to produce high quality wines represents a field of great interest.

Amyndeon‐naoussa: the two faces of Xinomavro

Xinomavro is the most important indigenous red wine variety grown in Northern Greece. It participates in the production of several PGI wines in Macedonia while from 100% Xinomavro the PDO “Amyndeon” and “Naoussa” are produced. The viticultural area of Amyndeon lies in a plateau of 550 ‐700 m of altitude, in a semi‐continental climate with mostly deep sandy loamy soils derived from limestone and marl bedrocks while in Naoussa, Xinomavro is grown in a Mediterranean climate on more heavy textured soils, sandy clay loam to clay, derived from ophiolithic, limestone and marl bedrocks, in an altitude which varies from 150 to 400 m. Different soil, climate and viticultural technique interactions, result in great variability with respect to morphological, ampelographical and physiological characters of Xinomavro as well as in the characteristics of the wines produced. 

Grapevine nitrogen status: correlation between chlorophyll indices n-tester and spadGrapevine nitrogen status

Knowledge of the nitrogen nutrition status of grapevines is essential for the sustainable management of their nutrition for the production of quality grapes. The measurement of the chlorophyll index is a rapid, non-destructive and relatively inexpensive method that provides a good approximation of the nitrogen nutrition status of the vine during the season. Interpretation thresholds are currently insufficient or non-existent for some chlorophyll meters. Ideally, they should be available for each variety and each phenological stage. In order to popularize the use of chlorophyll-meters, measurements were carried out at Agroscope in Switzerland to establish the correlation between the indices obtained by the devices N-tester and SPAD 502.
