In previous studies L. plantarum V22 strain, selected at the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore of Piacenza, showed a fast and reliable MLF, a positive impact on chemical and sensory characters of wine, as well as no histamine and tyramine production, when used in simultaneous or sequential inoculum in several must/wine variety with high pH (3.5÷3.8).
The aims of this work were: to test the performance of L. plantarum V22 strain when inoculated in low pH (pH 3.3) must/wine during and sequentially the AF and to follow the trend of amines from must to wines at bottling after AF/MLF and after one year of storage into the bottle.
