Each year Italy competes with France to be the world’s largest wine producer.
Italian wines are still little or poorly known though.
Only Tuscan wines, Lambrusco or Prosecco are widely known, the latter being an ingredient of the Spritz cocktail whose consumption has exploded in recent years. Yet Italy produces many other wines, including some of the most prestigious.
With this book, Ettore Scarlino offers the possibility of discovering the diversity and richness of Italian wine production, considering the variety of climates and soils, endemic varieties of vine, and renowned or up-and-coming producers.
Ettore Scarlino is a wine expert and importer of Italian wines in France who graduated in “sommellerie” from the University of Burgundy. He is keen to offer the wines of artisan producers who work their land seriously and responsibly with a respect for their locality and the natural balance of the soil.
