La viticoltura veneta in un contesto di città e industria diffusa: per una lettura integrale del paesaggio della collina pedemontana veronese orientale

Abstract

[English version below]

Il Veneto, come è noto, rappresenta una delle estensioni di superfici a vigneto più importanti in Italia e nell’Europa stessa. Il paesaggio viticolo fino ad oggi è stato ampiamente letto nelle sue componenti, sia strettamente agricole che culturali. Lo si interpreta e propone anche nelle sue nuove geometrie. Convive, però, con un esasperato uso del suolo dovuto ad altre destinazioni che si constatano e che si possono ulteriormente immaginare, viste le incalzanti e numerose decisioni che a livello politico gli enti territoriali hanno messo in atto per un’ulteriore avanzata immobiliare ed edificatoria in senso lato. Si desidera qui proporre la riflessione in un’ottica integrale per giungere a delineare una modalità con la quale porsi – oggi – di fronte ad una lettura “corretta” del Paesaggio Viticolo, non edulcorata ma che – proprio anche contestualizzandolo – ne accentui le valenze armoniche e proporzionate ad un aspetto anche umanistico di cui esso si può fare carico nella sua fruizione.
L’illustrazione e interpretazione verrà applicata ad un territorio limitato – la collina orientale del veronese e la pianura immediatamente pedemontana che si può prendere a campione dei fenomeni sopra evidenziati.

The Veneto, as is well known, has one of the largest areas under vine in Italy, and indeed in Europe. The viticultural landscape within this Region has up until now been widely studied from the point of view of its various elements – both strictly agricultural and cultural – and its new patterns are now being interpreted and explained as well. It cohabits, however, with an exaggerated use of the land for other purposes which can already be seen or whose future scenarios can easily be imagined, given the numerous (and relentless) political decisions local government bodies have put into effect that encourage further real-estate and building developments in a general sense.
We aim here to offer an all-embracing reflection that can help to delineate a means for attempting – in today’s conditions – a “valid” interpretation of the viticultural landscape: one that is not pretified but which – precisely because it is seen in the correct context – accentuates its harmonious elements and those that are in line with the human-related aspects which will probably be part and parcel of its use.
Our illustrations and interpretations will be applied to a limited territory – the hills in the eastern part of the province of Verona and the plains lying immediately below them – which provides a good example of the phenomena highlighted above.

Spectral features of vine leaves are influenced by their mineral content

The reflectance spectra of vegetation carry potentially useful information that can be used to determine chemical composition and discriminate between vegetation classes. If compared with analytical methods such as conventional chemical analysis, reflectance measurement provides non-destructive, economic, near real-time data. 

Study of cross-modal interactions through sensory and chemical characteristics of italian red wines

This work aimed at investigating red wine olfactory–oral cross-modal interactions, and at testing their impact on the correlations between sensory and chemical variables. Seventy-four Italian red whole wines (WWs) from 10 varieties, and corresponding deodorized wines (DWs), were evaluated by sensory descriptive assessment.

Response of Albariño to local environmental conditions in Uruguay

Albariño is a white cultivar that has been recently promoted in Uruguay due to its ability to maintain high berry quality even in adverse climate conditions during ripening. This study aims to assess the effect of different topographic conditions on Albariño agronomic behavior and oenological potential.

Depletion Of Vine-Shoots Phenolic Composicion After Being Used As An Enological Tool For Wine Differentiation

Pruning vine-shoots are a viticulture waste that have been traditionally poorly exploited in relation to its chemical minority composition related to phenolic and volatile compounds. In this line, toasted vine-shoots supposes a proposal of enological tool to use to modulate the chemical and sensorial profile of wines. From a phenolic point of view, when vine-shoots are used during winemaking mainly influence to increase the flavanols and stilbenes content, mostly trans-resveratrol, as also an increasing in the sweet tannins and decreasing the green character and total anthocyanins, changing the violet for garnet colour.
