Presentation of the Vintegro project: stability and integrity of the Tuscan wine

Stefano Ferrari from the laboratory ISVEA has introduced the VINTEGRO project during the 2019 Enoforum congress.

The project “Vintegro” has received funding from the European Union’s through the Region Tuscany Rural Development Plan 2014-2020 (activated measures (16.2, 1.1, 1.2, 1.3) and involves ISVEA (group leader), Antinori, Col d’Orcia, Avignonesi, the department of agricultural, food, environmental and forestry sciences (DAGRI) from Florence University, Coldiretti Toscana Companies Assistance Center (CAICT) e Vinidea.

It aims is to produce naturally stable wines with less use of addition and elimination enological technics, reducing the negative environmental and economical impact and saving the qualitative heritage of the grape based on varietal expression or territorial typicity. 

Therefore it is necessary to have suitable tools in order to predict the evolution in time of the wine profile.

The VINTEGRO project will develop a test to predict wine instability based on several processes and on new technical analysis, investigating the possible use of DLS, dynamic light scattering, and Zeta potential, the study of suitable technics to remove unstable proteins of the wine from fermentative step. The project aims to increase the knowledge on the role of proteins in red wine stability and the drawing up of guide lines to produce naturally stable wines, without precipitation risks in the bottle and with a longer shelf-life.

The project started at the beginning of February 2019 and will last 32 months.
