Beyond Barolo and Brunello

Italy's Most Distinctive Wines

Authored by Tom Hyland

Certainly everyone knows that Italy is one of the world's leading wine producers, yet few understand the vast array of its wines. Beyond Barolo and Brunello: Italy's Most Distinctive Wines is a look at the best examples of virtually every wine type from Italy. Written by an American journalist who has been traveling to wine regions throughout the length and width of Italy for more than a dozen years, this is meant to give wine lovers an insider's glimpse at the finest examples of not only famous wines such as Amarone, Barolo and Brunello, but more importantly, the everyday wines such as Soave, Dolcetto, Nero d'Avola and Verdicchio that are the backbone of the Italian wine industry. There are entries of more than 550 wines from more than 475 producers; each entry describes in detail several specifics about the wine, not only the aromas and flavors, but also the style of the wine as sought by the producer. More than just a technical approach to the Italian wine scene, this is an engaging look into the individuals who continue the work of their ancestors - that of creating a viticultural product that reflects a specific sense of place.
