  • Type Of Contract: To be defined
  • Light struck is a defect of white or rosé wines stored in a colorless glass bottle and exposed to light in the presence of riboflavin (RF). Plants and some microorganisms (including Saccharomyces) are able to synthesize RF, but there is very little scientific work related to its origin in wines. Given the success of rosé Prosecco, we will investigate the origins of RF throughout the production chain, to understand which are the main sources, and therefore understand how and where to intervene to prevent the light struck. The project includes: 1. Study of the contribution of the raw material (Glera and Pinot noir grapes) 2. Study of the contribution of yeast in first fermentation (comparison of different commercial yeast strains and evaluation of different types of nutrition) 3. Analysis of RF content in nutrient commercial products. 4. Effect of the second fermentation on the production of riboflavin
