Prior experience includes seven vintages as assistant winemaker in wineries of North-East of Italy. Matteo’s research is focussed on the study of wine colloids, particularly on investigating the structure of grape proteins, the interactions of wine protein with other wine components, and the mechanism of protein haze formation in wines, and has practical experience in turning that knowledge into alternative solutions to bentonite for protein stabilisation of white wines.

Research areas
