Barolo to Valpolicella

Author: Nicolas Belfrage
Publisher: Miller/Mitchell Beazley
ISBN: 1840008016
Release Date: 2003-04-01
Genre: Cooking

The world of Italian wine sometimes seems like a jungle, with all manner of strange vine varieties hanging from branches, a mass of laws and regulations lurking like thick undergrowth, just waiting to trip up the unsuspecting student. Barolo to Valpolicella, the first of two volumes about the wines of Italy, attempts to sort the wood from the trees in this most complex and fascinating of wine lands. Using the many local and international grape varieties as signposts, the author leads us through the mysteries of Northern Italian viniculture -- from Mont Blanc to the Slovenian border, from the Swiss-Italian Alps to the Apennine foothills. On the way we take in such magical areas as Valpolicella and Soave Classico, South Tyrol and Trentino, the hills of Bologna and the Po Valley plain where Lambrusco vines really did once hang from trees. Have the Italians got it in them to take centre stage among the wines of the world in the twenty-first century? Nicolas Belfrage puts the case, and provides a base from which readers may form an opinion for themselves. Book jacket.

Barolo and Barbaresco

Author: Kerin O’Keefe
Publisher: Univ of California Press
ISBN: 9780520959231
Release Date: 2014-10-17
Genre: Cooking

Following on the success of her books on Brunello di Montalcino, renowned author and wine critic Kerin O’Keefe takes readers on a historic and in-depth journey to discover Barolo and Barbaresco, two of Italy’s most fascinating and storied wines. In this groundbreaking new book, O’Keefe gives a comprehensive overview of the stunning side-by-side growing areas of these two world-class wines that are separated only by the city of Alba and profiles a number of the fiercely individualistic winemakers who create structured yet elegant and complex wines of remarkable depth from Italy’s most noble grape, Nebbiolo. A masterful narrator of the aristocratic origins of winemaking in this region, O’Keefe gives readers a clear picture of why Barolo is called both the King of Wines and the Wine of Kings. Profiles of key Barolo and Barbaresco villages include fascinating stories of the families, wine producers, and idiosyncratic personalities that have shaped the area and its wines and helped ignite the Quality Wine Revolution that eventually swept through all of Italy. The book also considers practical factors impacting winemaking in this region, including climate change, destructive use of harsh chemicals in the vineyards versus the gentler treatments used for centuries, the various schools of thought regarding vinification and aging, and expansion and zoning of vineyard areas. Readers will also appreciate a helpful vintage guide to Barolo and Barbaresco and a glossary of useful Italian wine terms.

Brunello to Zibibbo

Author: Nicolas Belfrage
ISBN: 0571195164
Release Date: 2001
Genre: Cooking

Nicolas Belfrage concludes his two-volume tour of Italian wine with a look at the outstanding varieties from Tuscany to the south. In "Barolo to Valpolicella," Nicolas Belfrage demystified northern Italian viticulture, discussing dozens of wines ranging from the highest-quality vintages to affordable selections that can be enjoyed every day. Now, with "Brunello to Zibibbo," the second of his two-volume survey of Italian wine, Belfrage considers the wines from Tuscany to the south, again concentrating on the regions' indigenous vines and the unique grapes that make Italy's wines so exceptional. The book offers extensive coverage of the vines and wines of Tuscany but also assesses the emerging wines of the south, on which, to date, little has been written. From the Sangiovese, or Brunello, of Tuscany, to the Zibibbo, or Alexandrian Muscat, of the island of Pantelleria off the Tunisian coast south of Sicily, this book is an authoritative primer on the wealth of Italy's vineyards and a discerning guide to the regions' best bottles.

Lorenzo s Legacy

Author: John Davies
Publisher: Trafford Publishing
ISBN: 9781412020800
Release Date: 2004
Genre: Fiction

Lorenzo's Legacy is a work of fiction. Most of the characters, incidents and dialogues are products of the author's imagination. Lucky Luciano was a real person and the world's number one mobster. It was true that he was serving a 30-50 year jail sentence when the USA government released him and exiled him for life to his homeland of Italy in 1946. History does not record that the Mafia's boss of bosses ever spawned a bastard son by the name of Lorenzo while in exile. If he had this is the legacy he might have left his unfortunate offspring. It is a tale of gory gang murders, drug trafficking, brothel keeping, smuggling, bank heists and child abuse at an orphanage run by Franciscan monks. Lorenzo became a hoodlum just like the notorious father who disowned him - Lucky Luciano.
