THE WINE WORLD IS CHANGING. IN AUSTRALIA, THE "WINE INTELLIGENCE" REPORT REVEALS INTERNATIONAL VARIETIES ARE LOSING GROUND FROM THE GLASS TO THE VINEYARD AND THE MEDITERRANEAN ONES - SANGIOVESE, TEMPRANILLO AND SAGRANTINO - ARE SOARING

Things are slowly changing in the wine world, both in taste and in production possibilities and needs, because climate change is not an unfounded fear, but a hard reality, as Professor Attilio Scienza, one of the top world wine experts in the world told WineNews (the complete article is here: https://goo.gl/h9sU18). We will have to get used to it and learn how to adjust. Even though maybe not necessarily in the vineyards, where in the next few years we will witness a return of the most resistant varieties that are mainly the Mediterranean ones, starting from Italian native varieties, with new generation rootstocks alongside the most resistant ones, thanks to the new frontiers of genetics.
An example of what could happen, not only in Italy but also globally, comes from Australia, where the lasted Wine Intelligence (www.wineintelligence.com) report, "Australia Landscape 2017”, revealed that consumption, and consequently new plants, are moving increasingly and steadily from international, or rather French, varieties such as Syrah, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon to Mediterranean ones.
The Mediterranean varieties have been performing surprisingly well in Australia, from Tempranillo to Sangiovese, and Sagrantino, becoming the most important trends in the Southern Hemisphere. As we said, it starts with the glass, as Australian wine lovers are curious and more and more open to new wines and flavors, and finishes in the vineyards, where hectares of varieties that are not well known to Australia's wine history are growing rapidly.
