Italian wine is so much more than simply Chianti. There are the wonderful whites of Alto Adigio, the light reds of the Veneto, and literally thousands of varietals that are as complex and fascinating as the history of the land from which they derive. This journey through all the major wine regions of Italy will thrill experienced wine drinkers with its in-depth descriptions, and help beginners expand their knowledge of the most diverse wine-producing nation on the planet.
