Críticas:

"Hours of pleasure for those who are tired of drinking only chardonnay and merlot." Miami Herald 20140514 "Wine writers will tell you that they reach for two kinds of books: those for serious research and those for curling up in a favorite chair. When a book inhabits both categories, it is a rare and delightful tome indeed." The Boston Globe 20140515 "Detailed, interesting and original and I recommend to anyone interested in Italian wines or the topic of native wine grapes generally. It is a seriously fascinating read." The Wine Economist 20140528 "Intended for fans of Italian wine who want to learn more about all the native grape varieties, region by region... An excellent reference tool for those interested in viticulture who would like to go beyond the science of tasting." Vins & Vignobles 20140523 "'Definitive' is the term that comes to mind for this book. It is rare to find a book that seems to cover its subject so thoroughly that it banishes the thought of needing any further resource on the matter, but Native Wine Grapes of Italy by Ian D'Agata is such a book." Italian Wine Central 20140601 "Kind of overwhelming, but oh so fascinating. The only thing to do is plunge in... I'm hooked." -- S. Irene Virbila Los Angeles Times/Daily Dish 20140617 "This book had to be written, and Ian D'Agata is the only person I know who could have done it... I strongly suspect every wine professional and wine consumer with a serious interest in Italian wine will come to count on the book as an indispensable work of reference for many years to come." Decanter 20140701 "There's little anyone could possibly want to find out about Italian viticulture and viniculture that isn't here. It is a magnum opus of daunting authority." -- John Mariani Virtual Gourmet 20140622 "D'Agata didn't just write this book, he lived it, and it's clear that he takes personal responsibility for the fate of Italy's native grape varieties. The frustration, tenderness, and romance that infuse both anecdotes and technical passages alike make this book an unexpected page-turner." The World of Fine Wine 20140801 "Italian wine lovers might look for information about certain grapes or simply leaf through this monograph, amused as I was by some of the facts Mr. D'Agata uncovered. Who knew, for example, that Grillo, the white grape of Sicily, is also the word for cricket in Italian? Or that the Pecorino grape was named after sheepherders? (Pecorino is, of course, more famously a cheese made from sheep's milk.)" -Lettie Teague's Six Favorite New Wine Books Wall Street Journal 20140912 "Superbly written, and very detailed ...Comprehensive and richly informative. His writing is excellent: his prose is flowing and easy-to-read." -- Huon Hooke Hooked on Wine 20140920 "This is ... a book for any ardent lover of Italian wine to keep handy... His friendly, open voice and appealing combination of humility and pride are just right for his complex subject." -- Edward Behr The Art of Eating 20141201 "This blend of personal recollection and definitive scholarship is an essential reference." - Best Wine Books of 2014 -- Eric Asimov New York Times 20141204 "D'Agata has done superb scholarship on grapes both minor and major... Serious lovers of Italianate wines need this book." -- Jon Bonne Inside Scoop SF/SFGate 20141219 "[Ian D'Agata is] a bit like the pied piper of indigenous grapes." -- Cathy Huyghe Forbes 20150319 "D'Agata's book knows no equal... In my mind, what lifts this particular volume above and beyond is the way in which D'Agata's editor has chosen to preserve the author's inherent wry humour, charm, and wit across all 600+ pages." -- Jamie Drummond Good Food Revoution 20150316

Reseña del editor:

Mountainous terrain, volcanic soils, innumerable microclimates, and an ancient culture of winemaking influenced by Greeks, Phoenicians, and Romans make Italy the most diverse country in the world of wine. This diversity is reflected in the fact that Italy grows the largest number of native wine grapes known, amounting to more than a quarter of the world's commercial wine grape types. Ian D'Agata spent thirteen years interviewing producers, walking vineyards, studying available research, and tasting wines to create this authoritative guide to Italy's native grapes and their wines. Writing with great enthusiasm and deep knowledge, D'Agata discusses more than 375 different native Italian grape varieties, from Aglianico to Zibibbo. D'Agata provides details about how wine grapes are identified and classified, what clones are available, which soils are ideal, and what genetic evidence tells us about a variety's parentage. He gives historical and anecdotal accounts of each grape variety and describes the characteristics of wines made from the grape. A regional list of varieties and a list of the best producers provide additional guidance. Comprehensive, thoroughly researched, and engaging, this book is the perfect companion for anyone who wants to know more about the vast enological treasures cultivated in Italy.
