It appears no actual effort was put into this year's guide. No individual wine reviews or even basic information on the wines, such as grape varietal or aging and use of oak, was included like past volumes. After 20 years of using the guide, I really don't need a basic paragraph on each winery. I have no clue as to what has happened, but I for one cannot imagine how any Italian wine lover can gain anything from this volume.
It appears GR has jumped the shark...I for one will miss it.
This GR guide used to be useful; I have used the previous 9 year's editions as reference points to start sampling. It's a pity and annoying because readers were (apparently) never advised to not expect the traditional information they were used to in each previous year's editions.
But now, 2nd year running the book has left out all pertinent information about the wines again, and just included information about the wineries (and the bicchieri [glass] rating system). And, while that information is interesting, it isn't compelling enough of a reason to buy this book because I, for one want to know about the WINES, not just the wineries and a non-descriptive rating. This will be the last time I purchase this guide unless they return to their former format.
