Publishers Text

The Great Atlas of Italian Wines is a journey through Italy as a country of wine. It tells of and illustrates the main denominations, region by region, with a description of the most widespread international grape varieties and the most important native Italian grape varieties. Maps combined with infographics describe the organoleptic characteristics of the wines of each area in a clear and immediate way.

Unique in terms of its narrative and scientific content and suitable for experts and curious people alike, the Great Atlas is an indispensable tool for wine lovers, a mine of well-organized information to keep on hand at all times. It is useful for travelling, studying, choosing a wine at a restaurant or wine bar, or creating your own wine cellar. The 1500 best producers are geolocated in the detailed maps, with a list of the 3000 wines most representative of Italian excellence, regardless of the vintage, resulting from years of cross-checks on the data from the main national and international guides and magazines from the sector.

The volume is completed with the stories of 300 wines that mark the past, present, and future of Italian wine, with wonderful reproductions of their labels.
