1.0 out of 5 stars Nice pictures but small contents, 14 May 2009
I was back from Tuscany with an italian wine compact book, "Vini" by "Guide Compact De Agostini" and I got so much involved in wines thanks to this simple book that wanted to select a few more wine books. I was very attracted by the nice reviews of this book but I must say I am very disappointed. There are a lot of nice pictures and pictoresque desciption about how to taste and select wine, about several fundamental vinegrapes and many hints regarding how to drink and to match with food, but eventually I cannot say I am able to remember if Chardonney is smelling more peach than Cabernet or Pinot Noir. The history of the wine as well as wine region or wine qualities is summarized too much and depicted like a sort of philosophical metaphora of understanding. That I did not get, I am sorry.
