Went to a winery outside Lucca in Tuscany today. Chatted up the staff. They are pretty bummed about the 2012 vintage. The grapes are like "raisins" (their word) and they are ungodly sweet. No rain since June until about 2 weeks ago when they got drenched. They are starting to harvest now. This particular winery doesn't export to the US. Looks like 2012 will be a difficult year in Tuscany.
