From the Publisher
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.
