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.

Significance of factors making Riesling an iconic grape variety

Riesling is the iconic grape variety of Germany and accounts for 23% of the German viticulture acreage, which comprises 45% of the worldwide Riesling plantings. Riesling wines offer a wide array of styles from crisp sparkling wines to highly concentrated and sweet Trockenbeerenauslese or Icewines. However, its thin berry skin makes Riesling more vulnerable to detrimental environmental threats than other white wine varieties.
