Sales of red wines from Tuscany fell by eight per cent between January and October 2023 compared to the same period in the previous year. This is according to data from Avito, the umbrella organisation for all Tuscan wine consortia.
According to the data, Chianti Classico and Rosso di Montalcino each sold 15 per cent fewer bottles, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, Bolgheri and IGT Tuscany wines 11 per cent fewer, Rosso di Montepulciano seven per cent fewer, Brunello di Montalcino six per cent fewer and Chianti and Morellino di Scansano three per cent fewer. Among the few exceptions are the white Vernaccia di San Gimignano with an increase of five per cent, as well as the Maremma wines, which are characterised by the white grape variety. Stocks in the cellars are rising accordingly.
Compared to the first half of 2023, the figures have barely recovered.
