Tre Bicchieri= Three Glasses=Italy’s Best Wines (and my wine Bible)

By August 11, 2012Wine Tours

Gambero-Rosso-Vini-Italia-2012Going to Italy and want to visit some top wineries? Do what I always do: consult the current edition of Gambero Rosso‘s Italian Wines. Each year for the past 25 years this organization selects Italy’s best wines and classifies them by awarding glasses instead of stars: 1 glass, 2 glasses or the top award of 3 glasses.

For the 2012 edition, the editors and staff reviewed 2,350 producers and about 20,000 wines! From this vast number they culled the best wines and awarded the coveted 3 Glass Award to 375 wines.

The book is divided into 21 geographical regions: Valle d’Aosta, Piedmont, Liguria, Lombardy, Trentino, Alto Adige, Veneto, Friuli Venezia Giulia, Emilia Romagna, Tuscany, Marche, Umbria, Lazio, Abruzzo, Molise, Campania, Basilicata, Puglia, Calabria, Sicily and Sardinia.

So once you know what areas you’ll be visiting, you consult the Guide which provides all the information you’ll need to make decisions, including contact information and addresses.

I never leave home without it!
