It can be a complex business navigating your way round the wine names, regions, wineries, winemakers and grape varieties you need to know in order to find your top-notch Italian wines. This guide presents a selection of 200 Italian wines, from everyday drinking wines to the stellar heights of world-class competitors, conveniently organized alphabetically within each wine region. In-depth profiles of each explain how the wine is made, who makes it, what it tastes like, how to serve it, what to serve it with and how to know when it is ready to drink. Also featured is an introductory section describing the techniques of wine-growing and winemaking in Italy and how these are used to influence the finished product. Armed with this insider's guide, every wine lover should be able to make informed and successful wine choices every time, and both those discovering Italian wines for the first time and committed Italian wine enthusiasts should enhance their enjoyment with the personal and viticultural detail offered.

4.0 out of 5 stars A must-have for Italian wine lovers 6 Nov 2002
Format:Hardcover
I've read most of Burton Anderson's books on Italian wine and have always admired the author's very personal approach to the wine and its producers. One of the good things about Anderson's books is that he's both a good critic on Italian wine as well as an enthusiastic Italophile.
"Best Italian Wines" has a very good mix of valuable information for readers who know a lot about Italian wines but also for the newcomer: Valuable information about labels and law, vinification on each favorite, a short but good glossary, vintages, price brackets, etc. ... This man really knows what he's talking about.
By the way, if you ever come across his older book "Vino" from 1982, read it. It's an even closer look at Italian wine and its producers. I wish he one day would revise that book...

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid read! 14 Aug 2009
By David M. Zoldak - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Burton Anderson, by far, is the most knowledgeable person in the world on Italian wines, there is no close second. Even though this book was last updated in 2001, it is still a great education book on Italian wines, and also the more famous wine producers. Just don't limit yourself to this book, as you should buy other books by the same writer if you wish to learn more about Italian wines. Myself being an Italian wine geek, I enjoy everything that Burton writes!
