The Consorzio Vino Chianti of Tuscany has officially revealed that it has approved a 20% reduction in production for the 2020 vintage for wineries in the region.
The reduction in production was carried out in order to prevent a backlog of Chianti wines and to protect the price system of the wines of the appellation, and to improve the quality of the wines of the appellation.
In addition, according to the Tuscany regulations, wineries can apply for a green harvest subsidy if they reduce their production by more than 15%. The current climate characteristics of the vintage suggest that 2020 will be another good vintage to look forward to in the Chianti wine region.
