Vintages in Tuscany

An easy to use vintage by vintage guide

1991

A return to cold and damp weather in the spring delayed the beginning of the growth cycle but set the vines up well for the summer which arrived in earnest towards the middle of June. The summer was mostly hot and dy, and did a lot to allow the vines to get caught up to speed. Heavy rains arrived just as the harvest was about to begin and did not let up until the season was basically a write off. The late start to the season gave some producers hope that perhaps they would be allowed a late finish, but the rains were followed by the early arrival of cooler autumn temperatures. These did some to help keep the rampant mildew in check, but prevented the grapes from fully ripening. While not a total disaster, very few wines are worth seeking out.
