The editors of Gambero Rosso are very eclectic, and like each variety of wine for what it is. Peruse the book with an open mind, and pay attention to those regions that are less familiar.

Synopsis

The Gambero Rosso guide, Vini d'Italia 2013, appears in ebook format for the first time. The most authoritative guide to the Italian wine sector, Vini d'Italia is the product of the work of an extraordinary group of over sixty tasters. They travel Italy from north to south to select the best: 20,000 wines reviewed, produced by 2,350 wineries.
The most complete edition ever produced, this volume is rich in information useful to both professionals in the sector and to wine enthusiasts in general: addresses and contacts, but also winery size (hectares under vine and bottles produced), type of viticulture (conventional, organic, biodynamic or natural), information relevant to visiting and buying directly from the winery – these are only some of the detailed facts that are provided alongside descriptions of the territories, the wines, their styles and winemakers.
Each label is supplemented with an indication of its average price in wine shops, its price range, and by a qualitative evaluation based on the famous Gambero Rosso iconography: glasses, ranging from one to three, the sought-after Tre Bicchieri ranking, symbol of Italian wine excellence. 399 wines attained the highest rating from our experts in this year's edition. Also included, Tre Bicchieri Verdi, that is, the listing for Green Tre Bicchieri wines, 93 this year, the top ranking labels that are noteworthy for having been produced with particular attention to the environment and to organic or low-impact agriculture.
Vini d'Italia 2013 is the irreplaceable guide for all who work in the wine sector or are interested in quality Italian wine.
