    Use of bacterial laccases to improve the quality of red wines

    The current consumer not only demands wines with good organoleptic quality, but also healthy and sustainable production, with a minimum of chemical elements, without compounds that constitute health risks, stable and without microbiological alterations. In this context lies the objective of this project, which is the application of lacases to the degradation of compounds that may be present in wines and that deteriorate the sanitary quality of these (remains of pesticides and phytosanitaries, biogenic amines), as well as its organoleptic quality (ethylphenols, TCA). This project has been funded by the Conselleria de Educación, Investigación, Cultura y Deporte de la Generalitat Valenciana (Ministry of Education, Research, Culture and Sports of the Generalitat Valenciana).
