Last year, we reported in
detail on the development of the Chianti Classico
under the conditions of a constantly warming climate
. Little has changed in the situation. Above all, the consequences of the drought continue to cause problems for the winegrowers
. It ensures that some wines do not have the necessary substance, depth and aromatic complexity to be able
to counteract the almost universally increased alcohol content. For all their alcoholic power, they then come across as a little barren and not infrequently brittle due to drying tannins. Fortunately, the situation has eased somewhat with the 2019 and probably also the 2020 vintages.
