Taking a cue from the various sets of research carried out on the possibility of determining the state of ripeness of the olives, the researchers of the CDR chemical laboratories conducted a study with the aim of developing a rapid and simple system for obtaining indications on the degree of ripeness of olives, useful for identifying the best time for harvesting.

Micro-oxygenation and maceration are two very important phases of winemaking that influence the stability and quality of the wine. Both processes are related to the content and characteristics of the polyphenols present in wine. Monitoring the evolution of these compounds over time is a fundamental tool in the hands of the winemaker to better manage winemaking processes and guarantee the quality of the finished product.

Download the article “Managing at best maceration and micro-oxygenation in the winemaking process” to find out which are the most effective methods to monitor the parameters that influence these processes and carry out the necessary operations to obtain both a stable and quality product.

When does the fermentation process end? How much sugar do you need to add in the priming phase? Researchers at the CDR chemical lab “Francesco Bonicolini” conducted a study on brewing with the aim of:
• understanding which is the best method to determine the end of the fermentation process;
• determining the residual sugar concentration in order to avoid problems in the priming phase.
For this purpose we studied the evolution of fermentable sugars as well as the variation of wort density during fermentation.

The 2018/2019 oil campaign can now be considered concluded for this year and, as in other years, we are able to comment on the results of the analyses carried out on a few dozen samples from various areas of Tuscany. Furthermore we have carried out a small study to learn more about determination of the appropriate harvesting period in the case of a heterogeneous olive grove that has several cultivars.
