“Joseph Bastianich’s very provocative, enthusiastic, and personal look at Italy’s greatest wines is a must-purchase for all wine enthusiasts.”
–Robert M. Parker, Jr.
“It is difficult to be objective when talking about one’s offspring, but unequivocally Joseph Bastianich, my son, has one of the premium wine palates in the industry. His infinite passion for wine is evident in every word he writes about it, in every sip he takes, and in every bottle he makes. Grandi Vini, eighty-nine wine stops through Italy with Joe, is definitely a trip worth taking.”
“Joe has created a greatest hits list of many of my favorite wines but also added delicious illumination with wines I was not familiar with–and that are now on my must-drink list. Reading Grandi Vini is like being a member of a secret wine geek club with access to the previously private whole magilla on the modern Italian wine world.”
“A compelling read that brings Italy’s most important wines to life, Grandi Vini is a must-have book for anyone serious about Italian wine.”
–Antonio Galloni, The Wine Advocate
