Grape Harvest 2013 will produce more excellent italian wine

harvest 2013According to forecasts the 2013 vendemmia will produce an estimated 45 million hectolitres of wine surpassing the France too.
Italy’s 2013 grape harvest could reach a historic record in terms of quality and quantity.
The grape harvest has started with the Pinot and Chardonnay grapes intended for the production of sparkling wines.
It continues throughout September and October with the collection of the Sangiovese, Montepulciano and Nebbiolo native red grapes. This year, the harvest will end in November with the Aglianico, Cabernet and Nerello grapes.
Climactic conditions in summer 2013 favoured an optimum ripening of grapes, resulting in very high quality.
Monitoring of the grapes picked already suggests that the quality of white wine will increase in particular, and reds are expected to meet 2012 levels of quality and production.
The 2013 harvest in Italy is being celebrated with a 10% increase in the export value of Italian wines, which are heading towards hitting a record 5 billion shipments abroad if the current growth trend maintains until the end of the year.
