“Podere San Cristoforo” tasting
Today we present another tasting that took place last week at LEV2050. On this occasion it was the turn of the San Cristoforo Winery, in Italy. To carry it out, the following people travelled to Pamplona: Lorenzo Zonin (winery director and oenologist), Andrea Cumin (Alea), Matilde Gentil (Castello di Albola’s oenologist), Virginia Logli (Abbazia Monte Oliveto’s oenologist), and Marco Olmastroni (LEV2050 representative in Italy).
Before anything else, we explained them LEV2050’s work. We told them about the products and the services we offer, as well as our company’s innovations. We also used the occasion of their stay in Pamplona to show them the different bioreactor models we have.
The next day, we showed them around the company. We started in the microbiology laboratories, followed by the oenology rooms, and we finished in the customised biomass production floor.
What did the tasting consist of?
Then, we explained them the study on personalised nutrition. The study consists in selecting the phylogenetically most diverse genera, species and strains of yeast to produce lysates that act as nutritional, organoleptic and structural agents. In other words, the objective is to obtain personalised nutrients.
This is the second tasting carried out for the “Podere San Cristoforo” winery. In the first tasting, they tried the micro-vinifications where the yeasts were tested as fermentation starters. The tasting showed that each of the micro-vinifications presented totally different organoleptic profiles. The ones that most pleased and surprised the participants were chosen.
Using the selected yeasts from the previous study and tasting as starters, the yeast lysates have been tested as nutrient agents for the organic nutrition in alcoholic fermentation, achieving different results in the wine’s profiles.
Here are some photos of the tasting.
We hope you enjoyed it!
