Only challenge is using the index to find specific wines. Maybe the Italians don't understand alphabetical order!

My daughter wanted an Italian Wine Tour for her 50th birthday. I Googled Italian Wine Tour and found a half-dozen that would cost between $4,500 to $6,500 per person for 8-day tours, no airfare included. I bought the Bastianich book and dove in to the vast wine world of Italy. I was able to narrow down the size of 35 major wine growing regions, including more than 3,000 grape varietals, four levels of grading and centered on one grape - Sagiovese - in 3 zones of Tuscany: chianti clasico, brunello, and vino nobile. Our 8-day wine tour cost $1,250 per person, not counting airfare, and we enjoyed 3 ***Michelin ristorantes. If you want to get serious about Italian wines, this is your book.
