Question: Which grape has adapted best to hotter climate change condtions?
Answer: That is a tough one. Don’t believe any one grape has been the most successful. There are lots of worthy candidates among those that didn’t quite get enough ripeness previously but now are thriving.
However, one of the grapes in the top group would be Barbera. This variety with large grapes and thin skins tends to overproduce so needs to have attentive pruning. Presently producing the best riper Barbera wines ever in Italy and plantings have expanded worldwide because of the helpful impressive underlining acidity always there for balance. Expect to see more Barbera wines in the future.
