No Mas Montepulciano d'Abruzzo, Mama Mia!!!


I have always listed Montepulciano d'Abruzzo among my chosen wines. However, I may have to drink less of it starting this year, as Italy's grape harvest has become very low. In fact, the country is now recording its lowest yield in 70 years.

I remember the days when France's grape harvests were also low and the market started noticing the wines produced in other countries. As a result, my personal favorites now include those that came out of Australia, Chile and South Africa. With Italy's grape problems, the world may start noticing new suppliers and wine varieties from other countries.

Well, diversity creates opportunities.

Viva!
