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.

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.
