[Autom. eng. transl.] Recently, a method was developed for the study of grape and wine metabolomics by LC / QTOF analysis and "Suspect screening analysis" approach. A new electronic database - called GrapeMetabolomics - has been built containing the molecular formulas of about a thousand putative grape and wine compounds, present in literature and found in other databases. On each sample studied a subsequent processing of the raw data is performed with an 'untargeted' approach, in order to obtain a further list of possible molecular formulas not present in GrapeMetabolomics. When the search on other electronic databases provides the identification of a new compound of potential enological interest, this is inserted into the database with the respective chromatographic retention time. Consequently, by increasing the number of samples studied, it is possible to further expand the database. In grape extracts, depending on the variety, this approach allowed to identify the molecular formulas corresponding to 320-450 compounds, and to obtain a complete and detailed profile of the chemical composition of the samples in only two analyzes. The method was also focused on the study of single classes of compounds, such as stilbenes and glycosylated terpenols of grapes. The latter are the aromatic precursors which, with vinification, release the floral and fruity aromas typical of aromatic varieties, and which represent the aromatic potential of these grapes. With this approach it is therefore possible to identify and directly study the glycosylated aromatic precursors in grapes and wines, without using the hydrolytic artifacts provided by the traditional methods that can alter the profiles of the samples. Here we present the study of the profiles of the glycosylated terpenols of three varieties of aromatic and semi-aromatic grapes: white Moscato, Riesling Italico and Glera.
