The research carried out by Viña Concha y Toro’s Center for Research and Innovation (CRI) identified new chemical markers for the quality of Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon for the first time.
This research enabled new chemical markers—any chemical molecule that can be measured and is known to have a specific sensorial impact on wine—for the quality of Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon to be identified, offering practical applications for wines originating from different countries and made using different production systems.
“The CRI is an open center, and this publication documents research carried out in collaboration with the Edmund Mach Foundation in Italy. Wine metabolomics or profiling of a large number of metabolites in a sample is a cutting-edge tool for untargeted metabolomic studies”, said CRI Director, Álvaro González.
In addition to identifying promising markers for the quality of these wines, the study found that Premium Cabernet Sauvignon is differentiated by its polyphenol profile.
