4.0 out of 5 stars A book for everybody who loves Italy and its wines, 25 Feb. 2013
This review is from: Grandi Vini: An Opinionated Tour of Italy's 89 Finest Wines (Hardcover)
Bastianich recalls his years spent working in Italy in many wineries throughout the peninsula. For each winery he offers a description of the varieties used, their vineyards and their choices of farming and winemaking. At the end he always expresses a judgment on their best bottles. It's not a technical book reserved for insiders (no tables), in fact he always describes the people behind each wine; the human aspect is king in the book. Wine enthusiasts can get tips on labels and vintages to taste.
The original text, written with skill, it is smooth and well balanced. It surely conveys Bastianich's deep love for Italian wine. Contrary to what he might look like at MasterChef Italy (stingy in compliments and sometimes rude), in the book he often praises wines and people.
