Vino Italiano

The Regional Wines of Italy

Dit boek is als download beschikbaar op uw Mac of iOS-apparaat met iBooks, en op uw computer met iTunes. Boeken kunnen worden gelezen met iBooks op uw Mac of iOS-apparaat.


At one time, Italian wines conjured images of cheap Chianti in straw-wrapped bottles. More recently, expensive “Super Tuscans” have been the rage. But between these extremes lay a bounty of delicious, moderately priced wines that belong in every wine drinker’s repertoire.

Vino Italiano is the only comprehensive and authoritative American guide to the wines of Italy. It surveys the country’s wine-producing regions; identifies key wine styles, producers, and vintages; and offers delicious regional recipes. Extensive reference materials—on Italy’s 300 growing zones, 361 authorized grape varieties, and 200 of the top producers— provide essential information for restaurateurs and wine merchants, as well as for wine enthusiasts.

Beautifully illustrated as well as informative, Vino Italiano is the perfect invitation to the Italian wine experience.

Van Publishers Weekly

04-02-2002 – With nearly 400 authorized wine grape varieties scattered over the 21 regions of its boot-shaped peninsula, Italy has long proved difficult for wine writers to cover comprehensively and accurately. This collaborative effort by Bastianich (co-owner with Mario Batali of Babbo, Esca and Lupa in New York City) and Lynch (senior editor at Wine & Spirits magazine), a restaurant wine director and writer, is clearly up to the challenge, and the result is a lively and informative primer on Italian wines for the neophyte consumer and connoisseur collector alike. The heart of the book lies in its insightful regional narratives (beginning with Friuli, in the northeast down through Calabria to Sicily in the Mediterranean), which spring to life through interviews with local restaurateurs and vintners. For those of a quantitative bent, each region has a "Fast Facts" section that offers relevant statistics on wine production, grape varieties and vintages. Five appendices cover Italian wine terms, grapes by region, key producers by region and importers. Designed to incite the reader to travel as well as taste, there are also tips about where to go for wine tourism and what cuisine to sample. Food and wine are inextricably linked in Italian culture, and the book makes this point by including local recipes from Bastianich's chef and cookbook author mother, Lidia, and Mario Batali, who also writes the foreword. Dishes such as Risotto al Barolo and Abbachio al Diavolo are designed to showcase regional wines, and honesty and professionalism dictate the authors' wine assessments. Illus. not seen by PW.
