Wine is confirmed as the driving force of Made in Italy agri-food exports, settling also in 2022 in first place (13% of the total) of the outgoing sector flows: this is what is stated by Nomisma's research 'Italian wine in the world. Trends, positioning and prospects', presented today at the third meeting of the Agronetwork tour to promote agri-food products and territories, at Castello Nipozzano in Chianti.
The trend is constantly growing, according to Nomisma, if we consider that from 4.7 billion euros in 2012 we have gone to 7.8 billion in 2022 (+ 68% in 10 years). In the last year alone, exports rose from EUR 7.1 billion to EUR 7.8 billion. Although the European Union continues to represent the main destination market for Italian exports (40% in 2022), in the last ten years the weight of the United States and Canada has increased (from 27% in 2012 to 29% in 2022) and Asian markets (from 5% to 7%). At the same time, exports have been retrained, with the weight of bulk (currently 19% in volume) falling in favour of sparkling and bottled wines, which respectively represent 24% and 57% of Italian wine exports. The central-northern regions of the country, with 36% of Veneto, and 16% of Tuscany and Piedmont, are the lion's share, "but in recent years southern Italy has also increased its degree of internationalization", says Emanuele di Faustino, head of industry, retail and services at Nomisma.
