Italy. Although standardization of labeling 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.
