Give a toast to the best, most up-to-date, and beautifully photographed reference on Italian wines!The New Italyexplores every signifcant development in the country's wine scene, widely considered one of the world's most complex. It gives readers a comprehensive and thorough look at all the country's key wine types, from Barolo, Chianti, and Montepulciano to Sangiovese and the champagne-like sparkling Prosecco. An introduction to Italy's wine styles and winemaking methods is followed by a region-by-region tour of vineyards, from Piedmont in the north to Calabria in the south. Full-color specially commissioned maps, details of the appellations and grape varieties, background on climate and geography, and profles of the leading producers round out this lively portrait.
