If you have shelves full of random Italian wine reference books that you never look at, buy this book! This portable little volume is an actually relevant and insightful guide that goes well beyond the usual list of Italian wines with interesting comments and information about the classics as well as any number of discoveries that make the reader take note. While written in a highly personal tone, the author obviously knows and loves the subject and the narratives and descriptions go well beyond the trite. This is a book of lists with real depth that you will literally sit down to read from beginning to end and then refer to often, even if you are a more advanced Italian wine collector.

Liked the book a lot, helpful since it focuses on a limited number of good recommendations - found lots of hidden treasures!

Haven't read it yet, just now ordered. I sought it out after reading a nice review on Jancis Robinson's "Purple Pages" (2008 wine books, Part 3).

Simple, easy to use guide for wines of italy. Great for anyone traveling to Italy- there are so many wines that having this guide will help. And Dr. d'
agata, as always, is a master!

I have bought a few books about Italian wines and food. Although this book is very informative, the layout is a little dull and difficult to navigate.
