This my ongoing “go-to” reference for good Italian wineries and specific wines. I’ve been getting the guide every year for about 10 years, and generally keep three years’ worth around for reference and to track individual wineries’ progress. I wouldn’t be without it.The 60-person staff at Gambero Rosso meticulously tastes many thousands of Italian wines each year and write their reviews afresh. Part of the value for me is being able to identify which wineries are truly improving and which are either merely holding their own or are starting to drift. There’s also usually some overall commentary on what is changing in the Italian wine industry, as well as something similar for each region.The guide is organized by region, and then alphabetically by winery name. I think most users will be drawn first and foremost to their ratings, which are very simple, and captured in wine glasses (bicchieri). Wines which Gambero Rosso recommends receive one glass (un bicchiere); Thus, even to get into the book is a signal of accomplishment. Two glasses (due bicchieri) reflect wines that are best expressions of the territory in which they’re made; three glasses (tre bicchieri) go to great wines that are universally recognized as symbols of Italian winemaking excellence.However, the guide also is increasingly informative on many aspects of the winery and wine, including production volume, price ranges, type of production (i.e., conventional, organic, biodynamic, etc.) and something of the recent past assessments. GR’s recent emphasis on those wineries using strict sustainability criteria also is reflected in the guide.No guide based on human assessment is ever going to be completely objective.
