Saccharomyces cerevisiae strains isolated from two different wineries in central Italy were subjected to enological and molecular characterization to investigate the influence of the winery environment. One of the selected wineries is a modern, working winery, whereas the second one was abandoned since 1914 and was located in an artificial cavern. The results obtained by our analysis of the fermentation traits underline the selectivity of the winery environment (winery effect), since strains… CONTINUE READING
