Research Note: Influence of Blackberry Plants on the Aroma Profile of Vitis vinifera L. cv. Pinot Noir

D. Tomasi1, M. Alessandrini1, R. Barcarolo2, F. Gaiotti1*

V. vinifera cv. Pinot Noir vines were grown in pots together with blackberry plants and the effect of this
association on the grape aroma was assessed. Preliminary data showed that vines that cohabited with
blackberry had a different aroma profile compared to vines grown alone. The association with blackberry
increased the concentration of 30 out of 74 free aroma compounds and 24 out of 95 bound ones. No aroma
compound was identified exclusively in the treated grapes.
