The course aims to illustrate the main analytical approaches and multivariate analysis strategies applied to the authentication of productions, with particular reference to
- chromatographic methods
- mass spectrometry
- nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy
- stable isotope ratio analysis
- 'omics' approaches
- multivariate statistical analysis
- Understanding the meaning and importance of the concept of analytical traceability
- Definition of methods, techniques and tools that can be used to analytically trace the wine production chain from the field to the finished product
- Definition of basic concepts related to Chromatography, Mass Spectrometry, Nuclear Magnetic Resonance, Isotope Ratio Mass Spectrometry in viticulture and enology
- Understanding methods, techniques and tools for 'omics' approaches in viticulture and oenology
- Understanding the basics of multivariate statistical analysis.
The course will deal with the following topics:
• Concept of analytical traceability: definition, fundamental concepts, examples
• Chromatographic methods for traceability and verification of authenticity of the vine-oenological chain: examples of applications
• Mass spectrometry approaches for traceability and verification of the authenticity of the wine-making chain: examples of applications
• Relationships between stable isotopes of bioelements and mineral profile: basic concepts, variability factors, use in official contexts, databases, tools, examples of applications concerning the wine production chain.
• Analytical methods of nuclear magnetic resonance: basic concepts and use for traceability and verification of the authenticity of the wine-making chain
• 'Omics' approaches applied to vines and wine: tools, techniques and methods of analysis
• Multivariate statistical approaches for the authentication of products in the wine-making chain: supervised and unsupervised methods.
The objective of the exam is to verify the level of achievement of the previously indicated training objectives.
The exam consists of a written test with open and closed questions. After receiving the written results, it is possible to arrange an oral interview with the teacher (optional). The evaluation will also take into account individual or group reports / presentations.

The University of Verona, through a network of agreements with foreign universities, offers international courses that enable students to gain a Double/Joint degree at the time of graduation. Indeed, students enrolled in a Double/Joint degree programme will be able to obtain both the degree of the University of Verona and the degree issued by the Partner University abroad - where they are expected to attend part of the programme -, in the time it normally takes to gain a common Master’s degree. The institutions concerned shall ensure that both degrees are recognised in the two countries.
Places on these programmes are limited, and admissions and any applicable grants are subject to applicants being selected in a specific Call for applications.
