    • 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)
      ARTÍCULO PUBLICADO EN REVISTA EXTERNA. 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 ...
    • Assessment of grapevine stems as source of phenolics with antioxidant properties. 

      Ferreyra, Susana; Bottini, Rubén; Fontana, Ariel (Comité editorial Revista de Ciencias Agrarias de la Universidad Nacional de Cuyo, 2019)
      ARTÍCULO PUBLICADO EN REVISTA EXTERNA. Winemaking industry generates considerable amounts of bunch stems that are usually wasted despite their potential value as source of bioactive compounds. Phenolic profiles and antioxidant capacity (AC) of bunch stem extracts from eight grape varieties of Vitis vinifera L. were determined. Sixteen phenolic compounds (PC) were quantified by high performance-liquid chromatography-diode array detection (HPLC-DAD). The maximum concentrations corresponded to the flavanols (+)-catechin (6462 μg g-1 DW) and procyanidin B1 (1987 μg g-1 DW), followed by the ...
