300 cellars visited, 2,500 wines reviewed
An innovative overview of the Italian wine world, which lists the country's finest bottles in terms of aroma and taste, sense of terroir, and value for the money.
For the fifth consecutive year, Slow Food International offers an English-language edition of its unique guide to Italian wines whose qualities extend well beyond the palate. Drawing upon visits to more than 300 cellars, the 2500 wine reviews in Slow Wine 2016 describe not only what's in the glass, but also what's behind it: the work, aims, and passion of producers; their bond with the land; and their choice of cultivation and cellar techniques--favoring the ones who implement ecologically sustainable winegrowing and winemaking practices. An essential guide for wine lovers and armchair oenophiles and better still for those who get out of that chair once in a while: over half the producers listed will offer a discount of at least 10 percent to anyone who visits them with a copy of Slow Wine 2016 in hand.
However, the vignettes are all too short. They are slightly longer than what appears in the more in-depth guide, but unfortunately not long enough to give you a true flavor for the winemaker or the winery. For armchair travelers or for homebound wine enthusiasts, my suggestion would be to profile half as many wineries and lavish twice as much (if not more) detail on each one. Just my opinion.
