The use of selected yeasts is a common practice in oenology which consists in adding these microorganisms in the form of dry formulations (active dry yeasts) or in paste to the must immediately after grape pressing in order to ensure prompt and technologically correct fermentation of the grapes.
However the yeast strains come from different parts of the world and are therefore often completely foreign to the territories in which they are used. The use of these “universal” yeasts has led to a “flattening” of the characteristics of the wines and in particular the loss of the characteristic typicality linked to the “terroir”.
The present invention relates to a yeast strain belonging to the Saccharomyces cerevisiae species and a strain selection method of ecotypical yeasts of the genus Saccharomyces suitable for fermentation alcoholic, particularly of grapes.
This yeast strain, selected from 729 strains in the Lison Pramaggiore DOC, is able to carry out the fermentation in an optimal way and at the same time to give the wine the typical notes of the wines of the area.

  • Vaccine efficacy prediction in poultry farming

    The method described in this patent can predict the efficacy of vaccines against avian infectious bronchitis virus (IBV), without the use of experimental infections. Currently, the control of IBV in poultry farming is based on the use of attenuated vaccines.[...]

  • Rapid detection of Aflatoxin M1 in milk

    The present invention relates to a method and a device useful for directly and rapidly quantifying the presence in milk of Aflatoxin M1, a carcinogenic mycotoxin deriving from Aflatoxin B1. In particular conditions of humidity or high temperatures, some vegetable[...]

  • 3D MICRO-ERT FOR AGRICULTURE

    Three-dimensional micro tomography analysis of electrical resistivity (Micro-ERT 3D) can detail soil moisture content and can monitor areas where uptake occurs near a plant's root system. This patent improves the 3D Micro-ERT to achieve high levels of measurement accuracy. In[...]
