Thanks to 5-year research and the European Space Agency support, Saturnalia is able to monitor day by day the growing season of the vineyards of the best wine-producing areas in the world. How can we do it? We analyse billions of pixels derived from satellite images and then let our algorithms digest the data. Our model combines a vast array of sources – such as latitude, longitude, weather data, humidity, leaf development (based on light reflectance) – to derive our SVI (Saturnalia Variation Index) and SEI (Saturnalia Evolution Index) indexes which allow us to grasp every distinguishing feature of the vintage.
An example? This vegetation timelapse of the Cannubi MGA in Barolo. A concrete representation of how we can show the vegetative response of 2021 vintage through the study of the reflectance* of light from the vines. All together, it goes under the name of the SEI (Saturnalia Evolution Index).
* The reflectance is the relation between reflected and incident light.
