Grape variety identification and detection of terroir effects from satellite images

Satellite images are used to determine the reflectance dependency to wavelength in different grape varieties (Cabernet-Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir, and Chardonnay). The terroir influence is investigated through study of vineyards in France, Brazil and Chile. Statistical techniques (ANOVA, cluster and discriminant analysis) are applied. Results indicate that there are consistent spectral features, mainly in the […]

Etude des effets millésime, situation et sol à partir d’un observatoire du Gamay en beaujolais

Des expérimentations sur Gamay ont été réalisées en Beaujolais de 2000 à 2006 sur 10 parcelles d’AOC différentes. De nombreuses mesures ont été effectuées à différents stades (vigne, baies récoltées, vinification et bouteille avec ou sans vieillissement). Ces mesures sont également de natures différentes (données phénologiques, analytiques, dégustation). Des analyses de la composition des sols […]

La haie bocagère comme critère de zonage à l’échelle parcellaire

Dans les AOC Française, la zone de production de la matière première peut faire l’objet d’une délimitation parcellaire basée sur des critères de milieu physique et d’usage D’autre part de nombreux zonages environnementaux se développent et les AOC sont appelées à intégrer des dispositions relatives à ces préoccupations. Les haies, à travers leurs effets sur […]

Studio dell’ambiente viticolo attraverso la parametrazione (punto di incrocio) delle curve di maturazione delle uve (pinot nero, oltrepo’ pavese pv italia settentrionale – 45° parallelo Nord)

Sono stati presi in considerazione alcuni dati agrometeorologici dell’Oltrepò Pavese (temperature e piovosità degli ultimi 80 anni) e gli studi delle curve di maturazione condotti in zona sul Pinot nero da spumante negli anni (1988-1991, 1999-2000, 2006-2008), si nota che l’aumento progressivo negli anni delle temperature attive (indice di Winkler) ha determinato un anticipo dell’invaiatura, […]

Design of an indicator of vine vigor potential conferred by soil (vipos), using a fuzzy expert system

Winegrowers must adapt more and more their viticultural practices in order to evolve toward a sustainable viticulture, to be competitive and to improve both the production methods and the quality and typicalness of wines. In this context, ‘Terroir’ studies in Loire Valley vineyards have allowed to build decision aid maps that can be used directly […]

Influenza delle componenti climatiche e pedologiche sulla variabilità dei contenuti polifenolici in alcuni ambienti vitati della DOCG Sagrantino di Montefalco

Obiettivo del progetto è la valutazione dell’influenza climatica e pedologica dell’areale di Montefalco sul vitigno Sagrantino, ponendo particolare attenzione alla componente polifenolica e antocianica. Sono stati quindi messi a confronto, a partire dal 2001 fino al 2008, sei differenti zone tutte situate all’interno dell’areale DOCG Sagrantino di Montefalco; per ciascun vigneto alla vendemmia sono state […]

la caratterizzazione dell’areale viticolo “terre alte di brisighella”: aspetti metodologici e primi risultati

La zonazione viticola rappresenta un importante strumento di indagine per valutare e interpretare le potenzialità produttive e qualitative di un territorio. Con l’obiettivo di studiare come l’ambiente influisca sulla qualità dell’uva nell’areale di Brisighella, sono stati monitorati, nelle annate 2007, 2008 e 2009, 14 vigneti per la varietà Albana e 38 per la varietà Sangiovese, […]

applicazione dei metodi isotopici e dell’analisi sensoriale negli studi sull’origine dei vini

Traceability of agro-alimentary products is very important to certify their origin. This work aimed to characterize wines obtained by the same cultivar (Nero d’Avola and Fiano) – grown in regions with different soil and climate conditions during three vintages (2003-2005) – employing isotopic analyses (NMR and IRMS) and sensory analyses. The effectiveness of stable isotopes […]

The influence of native flora on Argentine white terroir cv. Torrontes Riojano

The main objective of this paper is to establish considerable differences between wines from three wine areas or terroir, made with cv Torrontes Riojano. Seventy-one volatile components were used as variables, obtained by means of solid-liquid extraction, quantification by Gas Chromatography with Flame Ionization Detector (FID), and the use of a multivariate statistical model of […]
