Caratterizzazione varietale della CV. Vranac del Montenegro: primi risultati


[English version below]

Questo studio ha permesso di raccogliere alcune informazioni sul profilo chimico della cultivar Vranac coltivata in Montenegro. L’uva ha mostrato di raggiungere un buon accumulo zuccherino indipendentemente dall’annata anche se coltivata su suoli diversi. Può raggiungere un buon tenore di antociani e un discreto contenuto di tannini, presenta un profilo antocianico a prevalenza di malvidina-3-G con tenori elevati di antociani acilati. Dal punto di vista aromatico si tratta di una cultivar neutra con un profilo glicosidico a prevalenza di benzenoidi. Dal confronto tra i vini sperimentali e quelli del commercio si può osservare che le potenzialità del vitigno sono buone ma vanno potenziate con un’adatta tecnica di vinificazione per cui saranno necessarie ulteriori prove tecnologiche.

This study has allowed us to gather some information on the chemical profile of Vranac cultivars grown in Montenegro. The grape has been shown to achieve good sugar accumulation independent of the year even if grown on different soils. It can reach a good content of anthocyanins and medium of tannins. Malvidina-3-G was predominant in the anthocyanic profile and the levels of acylated anthocyanins were high. It is a neutral cultivar with a prevalence of glycosidic benzenoids in the aroma profile. The comparison between the experimental and commercial wines can assume that the potential of the grapes are good but must be reinforced with a suitable winemaking which will require further studies.

Comparing vineyard irrigation management based in two different approaches: vegetation indices and SIMDualKc model

Water scarcity, high air temperatures, high vapor pressure deficit, and increasing frequency and intensity of extreme climatic events, namely heat waves, exert huge pressure on viticulture, as is the case of Mediterranean climates. Therefore, farmers rely more and more on irrigation to overcome these constraints. Deficit irrigation is a proved strategy to optimize irrigation efficiency and wine quality. The present study intends to demonstrate the application of precision techniques, namely remote sensing derived vegetation indices (VI) and an open source software, SIMDualKc, to compute crop evapotranspiration using the dual crop coefficient approach (Kcb + Ke), for deficit irrigation management.

Dimethyl sulfide: a compound of interest from grape to wine glass

The overall quality of fine wines is linked to the development of “bouquet” during wine bottle ageing1. Several chemical reactions, occurring in atmosphere protected from oxygen, are favourable to the formation and preservation of sulphur compounds such as dimethyl sulfide (DMS). DMS accumulate in wines thanks to hydrolysis of its precursors (DMSp) mainly constituted by S-
