Synopses & Reviews
No wine producing nation is so confusing and challenging as Italy. Although standardisation of labelling and classification laws have brought some organization to the spectrum of Italian wines, the wine consumer is often baffled when trying to select from a wine list or market shelf. This beautifully illustrated and comprehensive work gives a geographical organization to the understanding and selection of Italian Wines. It can serve as an Italian Wine Atlas and travel guide as well as a wine selection handbook. At once, it is easy to learn of the best wines of each region and the best values as well. The authors are the most highly regarded curators, wine teachers and connoisseurs in Italy, writing for popular and academic wine publications, making regular television appearances and teaching in the Sommelier training academy. Maps, glossary, index and 150 color photos.
