The geological and geomorphological events that determine the soil functional characters of a terroir

The geology of a region is deemed to be an important component of terroir, as it influences the shape of the landscape and the climate of vineyard. The nature of rock and the geomorphological history of a terroir affect soil physical and chemical composition through a dynamic interplay with the changes of climate, vegetation and other living organisms, as well as with man activities.

Three proximal sensors to estimate texture, skeleton and soil water storage in vineyards

Proximal sensors are becoming widely used in precision viticulture, due to the quick, easy and non-invasive identification of soil spatial variability. The apparent soil electrical conductivity (ECa) is the main parameter measured by sensors, which is correlated to many factors, like soil water content, salinity, clay content and mineralogy, rock fragments, bulk density, and porosity.

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).
