This is the definitive English-language work on Italian red wines. Essentially folllowing the same approach as the original edition ( LJ 4/1/86), the authors have nearly doubled the number of pages and have covered the newer vintages up to 1990. The tasting notes, descriptions, and ratings include dates of latest tasting. Most have been recently revised. The authors also cite many of the opinions of other wine critics. The book is divided by the major grape varieties, Nabbiolo, Sangiovese, and Aglianico, with some attention paid to other varieties. History, vintage, and production trends, and personal anecdotes of winemakers all add to make the book truly comprehensive. Larger libraries or those that need a full treatment on Italian wines should purchase.
