Italian Wines 1998 surveys the panorama of quality
This volume is the first appearance of Vini d'Italia in an English language edition, but in its Italian version the guide has a long history. Since its first edition in 1988, the guide has played a major role in Italy's fine wine market; both professionals and wine enthusiasts have learned to trust its evaluations.
Italian Wines 1998 surveys the panorama of quality wine production in Italy. This 600 page volume reviews and evaluates about 8,500 wines and 1,400 wineries. During 1997, after months of blind tastings, 117 prize-winning wines were selected and indicated with a symbol that has become synonymous with quality: three glasses, tre bicchieri. This year, the Tuscany and Piedmont regions garnered the largest number of three glasses rewards, with 29 and 26 labels respectively.
