Product description


"Hours of pleasure for those who are tired of drinking only chardonnay and merlot." Miami Herald 20140514 "Wine writers will tell you that they reach for two kinds of books: those for serious research and those for curling up in a favorite chair. When a book inhabits both categories, it is a rare and delightful tome indeed." The Boston Globe 20140515 "Detailed, interesting and original and I recommend to anyone interested in Italian wines or the topic of native wine grapes generally. It is a seriously fascinating read." The Wine Economist 20140528 "Intended for fans of Italian wine who want to learn more about all the native grape varieties, region by region... An excellent reference tool for those interested in viticulture who would like to go beyond the science of tasting." Vins & Vignobles 20140523 "'Definitive' is the term that comes to mind for this book. It is rare to find a book that seems to cover its subject so thoroughly that it banishes the thought of needing any further resource on the matter, but Native Wine Grapes of Italy by Ian D'Agata is such a book." Italian Wine Central 20140601 --Boston Globe

This book had to be written, and Ian D'Agata is the only person I know who could have done it....I strongly suspect every wine professional and wine consumer with a serious interest in Italian wine will come to count on the book as an indispensable work of reference for many years to come. --Michael Garner, Decanter

From the Inside Flap

"Ian D'Agata was born to write this exhaustive, indispensable book on Italian wine grapes. His passion is indefatigable and his writing effortless. His willingness to demolish myths makes this the definitive word on the subject."
John Mariani, author of The Dictionary of Italian Food and Drink and How Italian Food Conquered the World

"Ian D'Agata's amazingly comprehensive new guide enables adventurous wine lovers to investigate Italy's vast storehouse of native grapes. Think of this book as a GPS device for finding each variety--from world-renowned to nearly extinct--in its greatest manifestations."
Stephen Tanzer, Editor/Publisher, International Wine Cellar
