Not yet rated | write a review
Among wine connoisseurs, Hugh Johnson is renowned as a writer of eloquent prose and a wine lover of erudition, discernment, and taste. Here he teams up with landscape and travel photographer Andy Katz, creating a glorious portrait of Tuscany: its history, culture, landscapes, towns, villages, people, and cuisine--and above all, its wines, vineyards, and winemakers.

Hugh Johnson's treatment of this many-faceted subject is perfectly crafted. His dazzling description of the wines of Tuscany is perfectly attuned to the 110 sparkling images accompanying the text. The book casts new light on much-visited places such as San Gimignano and the vine-clad hills of the Chianti region and reveals the secrets of tucked-away corners. A 2,000-word reference section at the back of the book includes a glossary, a growers' directory, and an A-Z overview of food specialties.

Tuscany and Its Wines is for everyone enthralled by the Tuscan marriage of light and landscape, wine and food, vines and olives, and beauty and history.
