THE ITALIAN WINE LOVER’S BIBLE aims to soothe those humble and skittish beginner wine aficionados wanting to understand Italian wine. How does one comprehend a land growing 2,000 varietal wines in one million vineyards? The first rule for those on bended knee with a wish to know why they adore the wines of Italy is: Italy is a country of red wines. Much white is made but it is rarely important. Italy (the Roman Empire really) is responsible for the dissemination of the great varietals throughout the modern world. Rome, as it created empire, brought cuttings from the Greeks. The Greeks had brought cuttings from Mesopotamia. The wine drinkers of the world are the beneficiaries. Today Italy is the greatest volume producer of wine in the world. (From vintage to vintage, France can be number one.) Cheap and dear, outrageous in complex beauties or simple pleasures, the wines of Italy are exported everywhere. This book aims to elucidate for ardent emerging oenophiles (literally lovers of wine) the regions responsible for the greatest Italian reds and the producers who year after year display artistic devotion to the grapes of their vineyards. The international wine world accords Bordeaux Cabernet Sauvignon based wines as the highest expression that grapes can attain. I will argue that this is wrong. That this is an opinion foisted on us by the Brits who were the great importers, and subsequently the exporters of what they call ‘claret’—the reds of the Bordeaux region. Google and Amazon are shining examples of ‘first in their field take over the field’. So too did Bordeaux wines seize the high ground in greatness. The five Premier Cru Classé (First Growths) today attain the highest prices vintage after vintage. I will argue that several red varietals from several regions share the lofty title: Best in the World. Cabernet Sauvignon (blended with Petit Verdot, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec—the classic Bordeaux blend) will forever share the pantheon of great reds. But so too will Sangiovese, Nebbiolo, Corvina and Aglianico of Italy. And Pinot Noir from Burgundy and wherever. And Syrah and Grenache. These wines all mature into elegant, brilliant wines. The proof of which is the best? This is the task of oenophiles everywhere: to sort out through tastings of all the various vintages with friends and family. A wonderful change—that quickly rocked the wine world--began in Tuscany in the early 1970s. The Marchese Piero Antinori blended Cabernet Sauvignon with Sangiovese, the ubiquitous grape of Tuscany. This inroad into greatness happened at about the same time that Napa Valley was shocking wine lovers in the USA. Antinori began to produce Tignanello--80% Sangiovese with 20% Cabernet Sauvignon--and Solaia--80%Cabernet Sauvignon with 20% Sangiovese. Antinori’s work marked the ascension of Italian wine from cheap and ubiquitous to great…and ubiquitous. THE ITALIAN WINE LOVER’S BIBLE starts its story from the early 1970s and explores Italy’s path to greatness. The great regions and producers are explored. And so too are the varietals--both those native to Italy and those non-native varietals latterly introduced. And, yes, Italy learned from France and New World winemakers modern viticultural planting techniques and vinification inroads. Italy also began importing 55-gallon oak barrels for aging. A star was being born.

Diffident to express your wine tasting vocabulary other than ‘Yuk!’ or ‘Yum!’? Read on. Beginning Wine Lovers need to know French wine because it is the quality standard against which all other wines are measured. In THE FRENCH WINE LOVER’S BIBLE, you will learn basic knowledge such as that White Burgundy can only be made with Chardonnay. And Red Burgundy is made 100% with Pinot Noir. By law! That the difference between Grand Cru Classé Bordeaux and the neighboring communes of Pomerol and St. Emilion is weather and the varietals planted in the vineyards. It’s cooler in inland Pomerol/St. Emilion and warmer where Bordeaux reaches into the Atlantic and is warmed by the Gulf Stream and the North Atlantic Drift. You may forever remember that St. Emilion/Pomerol glory in early ripening varietals such as Cabernet Franc and Merlot while their warmer neighbors—Pauillac, Ste. Estephe, St.-Julien and Margaux--can ripen Cabernet Sauvignon of fantastic quality (when Bordeaux has a fantastic vintage which only happens 3 years out of 10). The reader will learn of the Sauvignon Blanc wines grown on both sides of the Loire River. And too learn of the fantastic Syrah grape grown in the northern reaches of the Rhone Valley south of Burgundy and expressed regally in the Côte-Rôtie, Hermitage, St. Joseph and Cornas. The new wine lover will learn too of the white wines of Macon just south of the Côte d’Or, that river of those Chardonnays known already too many newbies as St. Veran and Pouilly-Fuissé. And of Champagne, Chablis, Alsace and the Loire River valley with its Sauvignon Blancs and Muscadet. And the picnic wines of Beaujolais. And finally learn of Provence Rosé and Languedoc/Rousillon the great source of bulk wine destined to become cheap supermarket wine. The French were the first—--and justifiably so—to proclaim their wines the greatest. The image took. And this quality image continues to shine brightly—and deservedly--outward from the legendary and historic vineyards of France. Competition from Italy, Spain and the New World is fierce when it comes to quality wines, but French wine remains the standard of comparison. Allons, mes amis!
