Respecting the land to defend territories, searching for an elegant way to adapt to climate change and moving inevitably to an organic approach are the trends that will influence winemaking in the coming years, as told to Winenews by the top Italian winemakers.

Franco Bernabei, said the future is one word: “respect for the land, the air and the men”. According to Beppe Caviola, instead, “a good winemaker is the one who will defend the wines of the territory, and therefore the characteristics and uniqueness of the territory itself, as well as the many indigenous varieties of wine that represent Italy from North to South” . “Climate change, to which we must adapt” said Stefano Chioccioli is the big challenge to earn a peaceful future, “because it will bring enormous changes, and the need to interpret wine in a new way in the various territories”.

In the next few years, according to Roberto Cipresso, the emphasis will be “emotions, i.e., wines able to resist in time and narrate their land. On the other hand”, Cipresso continued, “the concept of variety will no longer be foremost, because it does not create vibrations”. The president of Assoenologi, the winemakers association, Riccardo Cotarella said, “Consumers, as usual, will decide the trends that we winemakers will follow, because the market dictates the strategies”. According to Luca D'Attoma, we must never forget that “wine is linked to pleasure, which a style or a way of making wine often dictated by circumstances cannot impose. Our goal must be to make wines with more personality”. Carlo Ferrini was very concise and bets exclusively on "elegance".

Luigi Moio focused on the concept of “quality winemaking, which first of all means planning. We will all go towards the low environmental impact and for the consumer, and therefore organic winemaking, so we must create suitable conditions in the vineyard. Quality wine”, explained Moio, “ is nothing but the liquid product of fermented grapes, which is well balanced if the grapes are also well balanced.
In this context, the winemaker will become more and more an assistant in the procedure. The future is to have perfectly balanced grapes that produce wines, which do not require corrective actions. “Finally, Salvatore Foti said, “we must make wines more human, made for man and respecting man, and therefore respecting the territory in which man lives”.
