    • Abscisic Acid’s Role in the Modulation of Compounds that Contribute to Wine Quality 

      Alonso, Rodrigo; Berli, Federico; Fontana, Ariel; Piccoli, Patricia; Bottini, Rubén (Comité Editorial Plants Journal, 2021-05-08)
      Abscisic acid (ABA) plays a crucial role in the plant responses to environmental signals, in particular by triggering secondary metabolism. High-altitude vineyards in Mendoza, Argentina, are exposed to elevated solar ultraviolet-B (UV-B) levels and moderate water deficits (WD), thus producing grapevine berries with high enological quality for red winemaking. Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and phenolic compounds (PCs) accumulate in the berry skins, possess antioxidant activity, and are important attributes for red wine. The aim of the present study was to analyze the role of ABA in the ...
