From the Publisher
Seventh in the Carlo Cambi Great Wine Regions of Italy series, Lombardia: The Mosaic of Wine is a sweeping narrative of that region's unique wine making history, told in Zanfi's evocative prose. This book is a product of years of painstaking research, that creates in effect the most sincere and detailed of this beautiful region of Italy ever committed to print. Fifty-eight wineries are profiled in this book. They are relative unknowns in the world of wine. Unlike their Old World counterparts, which are trending toward big, fruity, high alcoholic wines, these vintners adhere to their traditions. And as the author attests, "These (wines) gift to us a glimpse of the character of an oft times forgotten past."
