Despite an expected 5% drop in production, the quality of the wines produced in Tuscany during 2016 is forecast to be good to excellent. 90% of the grapes grown in the region are used in local DOC (denominazione di orgine controllata, controlled designation of origin) vintages.

Italy accounts for 20% of the world’s wine exports. To read more in Italian, visit Florence’s La Repubblica news site.
