Italian Wines, 1999: A Guide to the World of Italian Wine for Experts and Wine Lovers
Since its first edition in 1988, the Gambero Rosso Italian Wine Guide has played a major role in Italy's fine wine market: both professionals and wine enthusiasts have learned to trust its evaluations. The 1998 English edition was truly a best-selling wine title for everyone and was a complete sell out.
Italian Wines 1999 surveys the panorama of quality wine production in Italy. Expanded to 650 pages, this volume reviews and evaluates over 8,500 wines and 1,400 wineries. During 1998, after months of blind tastings, prize-winning wines were selected and indicated with a symbol that has become synonymous with quality: three glasses, tre bicchieri.
