Il Soave: esempio di cultura e di scienza

Abstract

[English version below]

L’evoluzione del settore viti-enologico, supportato dalla ricerca ci propone sempre più frequentemente vini unici e inconfondibili. Il merito di ciò è da ricercare nel rapporto vitigno-territorio e dalla ormai scrupolosa ricerca di varietà più adatte per i diversi ambienti pedoclimatici. Lo studio in esame, iniziato nel 1995, è stato eseguito nell’area DOC Soave, denominazione di origine controllata tra le più significative del Veneto. La zonazione prima, la ricerca dei cru e del paesaggio poi, hanno avuto come scopo principale di salvaguardare, tutelare e proporre l’immagine del territorio ancorando ad esso i suoi vini. Ciò ha consentito di comunicare il panorama completo da cui nasce un vino, affinché vino e territorio siano valorizzati. Accanto all’esame degli aspetti storici, climatici, colturali e qualitativi, nello studio del Soave due sono gli elementi cui si è dato maggior rilievo, il suolo e la microstruttura dell’acino. In base ai caratteri climatici, podologici, orografici e storici, l’areale DOC e DOCG Soave è stato suddiviso in 14 sottozone. Nella prima fase di studio sono stati individuati 55 vigneti campione, mentre nello studio dei vari cru l’indagine è stata eseguita su 16 vigneti rappresentativi di altrettante realtà produttive storicamente ritenute i punti di riferimento della produzione Soave.

The progress of the wine-growing and enological sector, backed by research, more and more frequently gives us unique and unmistakable wines. The merit of this is in the relationship between the grape variety and the territory; and in the scrupulous research of more suitable varieties for environments with different pedoclimatic conditions. The study was begun in 1995 and was carried out in the “Soave” DOC area, one of the most significant controlled denomination of origin areas in the Veneto region. The aim of the zonation and the cru characterization are to safeguard and promote the image of the territory and to link the wines to the territory. It allows us to give a complete panorama of the territory which gives rise to these wins, their uniqueness, wholesomeness and naturalness, so that the wines and the territory increase in value. Alongside the study of history, climate, cultivation and quality, in the Soave study there are two aspects which are given prominence: the soil and the macrostructure of the berries. The Soave DOC and DOCG area was divided into 14 subzones on the basis of climate, pedological, orographical and historical features. In the 1st step were study 55 vineyard of Garganega, while in the cru studys were analyzed 14 vineyard that represent the historical standard of quality of the production o Soave.

USE OF 13C CP/MAS NMR AND EPR SPECTROSCOPIC TECHNIQUES TO CHARACTERIZE MACROMOLECULAR CHANGES IN OAK WOOD(QUERCUS PETRAEA) DURING TOASTING

For coopers, toasting process is considered a crucial step in barrel production during which oak wood (Q. petraea) develops several aromatic nuances released to the wine during its maturation. Toasting consists of applying different degrees of heat to a barrel for a specific period. As the temperature increases, thermal degradation of oak wood structure produces a huge range of chemical compounds. Many studies have identified the main key aroma volatile compounds (whisky-lactone, furfural, eugenol, guaiacol, vanillin). However, detailed information on how the chemical structure of oak wood degrades with increasing toasting level is still lacking.

Cultures des vignobles en forte pente: possibilités de mécanisation. Effet de l’exposition et de l’orientation des rangs

Plus de la moitié du vignoble suisse (14’000 ha) est situé sur des coteaux en forte pente (> 30%). Dans certains vignobles, la pente naturelle du terrain a été réduite par la construction de terrasses soutenues par des murs.

Uve e vini in vulcaniti basiche anorogeniche dei lessini meridionali, impronta petrochimica e assimilazione di metalli pesanti

Nel 2009 sono stati prelevati e analizzati mediante XRF (X-ray fluorescence) campioni di suolo, in vigneti sperimentali siti nelle province di Vicenza e di Ancona. Sono stati inoltre determinati in 2 campioni di mosto e 2 di vino delle varietà Verdicchio e Refosco dal peduncolo rosso, ed in 2 di uva Refosco dal peduncolo rosso, gli elementi in traccia mediante ICP-MS (Inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry).

Study of fungal and bacterial laccases for the reduction of ochratoxin A content in model wine

Ochratoxin A (OTA) is a mycotoxin produced by several filamentous fungi infecting grape bunches (Penicillium and Aspergillus spp.), this toxin pass to must when grapes are crushed and later it is found in wine. Following the evaluations of the toxicity of OTA, European Commission Regulations have been promulgated introducing upper limits for OTA concentrations in various commodities (cereals, cereal products, dried vine fruit, coffee, wine, grape juice, baby foods and dietary foods for special medical purposes).
