An American writer, with Sicilian grandfather and Mediterranean Sea in his blood went along Sicily trying to understand its wines, according to understand winemakers, winegrowers and people as well.
The journey is a difficult one, for all the imperfections tha made that island a wonderful and close to impossible place to live in.
Camuto met some of the biggest producers and someone aobut the crazy winelover, coming from other place (Italian or foreiners).
Within a year spent from a side to another, the author shows us several way to believe in wine, land and terroir, instilling in you the need to take a flight to reach Mount Etna or Pantelleria Island and begin to work in vines.
The reader can also understand the inner view of many about new Sicilian producers, in the middle between truly organic wine without labelling it and new style.
You can't help loving it.
