Slow Wine 2011 is the first guide to Italian wines published exclusively by Slow Food. It adopts a new approach to evaluating wine that looks beyond just the liquid in the glass to take into account ethical and environmental values. Packed with news, facts and figures, the guide focuses on small- to medium-scale, artisan producers and introduces many up-and-coming wineries, with a special emphasis on those that adopt a natural approach and/or are most closely linked to their respective terroirs.
