Vino Italiano is one of the few books that provide an encompassing picture of the Italian wines. Encompassing because the authors want the reader to understand what the Italian wine is about. Hence they tell short tales of the people who make it, who live where the wines are made, the cuisines the wines are supposed to mediate. Viticultural aspects as well as ampelographical backgrounds are supplied to the point to see Italian Winemaking with different eyes. The wine afficionado will find that knowledge helpful to decide what to look for and what to expect. And where to stay absent.
A book worth every Cent, and then some.
