MUST READ!

Grandi Vini
An Opinionated Tour of Italy's 89 Finest Wines

Author: Joseph Bastianich
Rating: Excellent
Format: Hardcover, 304 pages
Price: $24.99
Webpage: www.randomhouse.com
ISBN:978-0-307-46303-6

Joseph Bastianich is a leading authority on Italian wines & food. He is Mario Batali's goomba and partner. He is Lydia's Son and a founder of Eataly. Best of all he is a gifted story teller. His new book, Grandi Vini, is highly opinionated. It gives no mention of Castello Banfi or Banfi Wines. With more than 30,000 wine producers in Italy, this book only touches on Mr.
Bastianich's 89 favorite producers. We found the information to be quite useful when guiding a wine industry colleague on which wineries to visit in Montalcino.
