Renowned Italian wine and food writer Daniele Cernilli has released The Ultimate Guide to Italian Wine 2018. While the project started years ago as a website-magazine, it’s now the book’s fourth published edition. Organized by region (and cross-indexed by producer), the Guide identifies and reviews “the best and most interesting Italian wineries and wines” found at public tastings both in Italy and abroad.
Cernilli, aka Doctor Wine, led a team of experienced professionals in evaluating the more than 2,500 wines (from about 1,000 wineries) mentioned in the book. Wines are categorized by numerous ratings systems, including a quality-to-price ratio, and the book provides contact and social media information for every winery mentioned.
Following a successful tour across California in August 2017, talks are underway for Cernilli and a few Italian winemakers to again visit the United States in 2018 to educate and introduce Italian wines to industry professionals and curious consumers alike.
