Publisher's Summary

No place on Earth has a more ancient and important tradition of wine-making than Italy. Thousands of years before wine became commonplace in France or the Napa Valley, Italians were producing their own unique varieties and making wine an essential part of Italian - and human - culture.

Now with the six lectures of The Everyday Guide to Wines of Italy, you can experience the dynamism of Italian wine for yourself and become your own expert in the tastes, traditions, and innovations from history’s definitive wine-making regions. Delivered by acclaimed Master of Wine Jennifer Simonetti-Bryan, one of the foremost authorities on wines around the world, this course is a chance for you to embark on a delicious, interactive, and unforgettable tasting tour through a country that is equal parts picturesque, romantic, and mysterious.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Incomplete not worth the credit

Very basic
Talks about lots of key varietals but skips so much should be 3x longer.

Not worth the price

Basic and generalized

it's not terrible if you have almost no Italian wine knowledge, but the material is mostly very introductory. she also mispronounces things quite a lot. she seems lovely and the MW certification is ridiculously difficult to obtain, but I was looking for something more advanced.

Great quick overview of Italian Wines

Quick overview, organized by geographic region. Whites then reds in each chapter. I listened to her full guide, but I wanted downloaded this for more details and to prepare for an Italian wine tasting.

Tasting Notes

Should be titled "Tasting Notes on Italian Wines." The narrator gives tasting notes as she tries Italian wines.
