In Italy, wine is more than an accompaniment to food; it's a cultural institution and a source of national pride. Each of Italy's 20 significant wine-producing regions is featured here, with comprehensive details about local grape varieties and notable winemakers. In all, over 2,000 of Italy's best wines and producers are profiled and their recent vintages rated, from the powerful Amarone wines of Veneto in the north to Tuscany's lush Sangiovese grape-based chiantis and bold "Super Tuscans," through the many Sicilian wines made from the ancient cattaratto and carricante vines dotting the island. Of special interest to travelers are the regional maps, restaurant reviews, and tips on matching wines with the local cuisine, along with a glossary of Italian wine terms.
