Samenvatting

The wines of Tuscany were famous long before Leonardo da Vinci described them as 'bottled sunshine', and they are at the forefront of the remarkable renaissance of Italian wine over the past 30 years. In this groundbreaking new book, Nicolas Belfrage shares his insider's knowledge acquired as a specialist wine trader and writer. Mindful of the region's fascinating past, Belfrage brings its story up to date, discussing such subjects as geology and geography, grape varieties, and the latest research into Sangiovese, the variety used in the top wines of Chianti Classico, Brunello di Montalcino, and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. He also clarifies the regulatory framework and follows the recent controversial developments in viticulture and winemaking, including the rise of the Super-Tuscans and the ongoing 'Brunellogate' scandal that broke in 2008. At the heart of the book are in-depth, illustrated profiles of more than 90 of the most interesting producers, large and small, with insightful notes on the essential character of their finest wines. The author also offers a comprehensive review of vintages and selects his top 100 wines in ten different categories, while wines of special quality or value are indicated throughout.

Recensie(s)

'Straightforward yet refreshingly opinionated.' New York Times 'Its clear organisation and generous use of pictures -including some ravishing ones of Tuscany- break up the text nicely.' -- Andrew Neather Evening Standard 'Any serious Italophile needs this book.' A Best Book of 2009 Wine & Spirits Magazine
