5.0 out of 5 stars Wines from the end of the world (secrets and surprises) 15 April 2014
By Jose Paulo Schiffini - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Once upon a time...
.....If you consult not so old maps, maps by the time America was discovered,
let us say 1492, you willl find a definition of the Southern Hemisphere:
" Hic sunt leonis"; that means: here are the lions....
Today,instead of lions, today, there are very good wines!
This book shows that wines from Southern Hemysphere are the real protagonists in the wine real world market arena!
There, you will find one of the best world's Cabernet Sauvignon from Chile, the best world's Malbec from Argentina, the best world'sTannat from Uruguay and the promising light sparkling wines from Brasil and, why not to say, the marvelous Pimot Noir from Patagonia.
Enjoy and discover!
