The past two decades in Tuscany have been marked by extremes in weather, with a hot, dry vintage one year followed by a cool, wet growing season the next. The region’s vintners, however, have frequently risen to the challenge, honing their skills in the process. This has prepared them to capitalize on harvests in which there is greater equilibrium between rainfall and heat. The recent string of vintages that make up this report—2018, 2019 and 2020—were each born from seasons blessed with such conditions. As a result, the wines from all three years offer pleasure, charm and quality, along with the ability to age.
