More than seventy tasters have travelled around Italy to source the very best wines. The tastings - all blind - took place in consortiums and local chambers of commerce and were supported by experts in the field, sommeliers and trade buyers. The guide is completely accessible, organized in a simple, clear and functional way. Sections are arranged by individual winery - name, address, number of hectares of vineyard, method of cultivation (conventional, organic, biodynamic or natural). Entries are descriptive, of history and geographical region; evaluating the wines by the celebrated method of Bicchieri, or glasses, ranging from one, to a maximum of Tre Bicchieri. The guide also pays special attention to wineries that are eco-sensitive, awarding Tre Bicchieri Verdi to bottles that come from those with a particular regard for the environment.

This book offers a detailed analysis of the key sectors in the Italian economy, with the focus especially on areas in which the economy excels, such as the automatic packaging machinery sector, pharmaceutical production, the food and wine industry, and tourism. The book explains how, contrary to widespread opinion, Italy is one of the world’s most competitive countries in foreign trade, as confirmed by a new index compiled by Fondazione Edison that highlights its strengths and top traded products. The main characteristics of the Italian productive system, which is primarily composed of SMEs, are documented, and a map illustrating the importance of the various industrial districts is proposed, identifying their sectors of specialization, historical roots, and development. The principal steps in Italy’s industrialization over the past 150 years are then outlined, in particular for the manufacturing system – the main driver of Italian exports. In-depth analyses of the mechanical industry and the machinery sector follow. In combining meticulous analysis of statistical data with a historical perspective, this book will appeal to all with an interest in the Italian economy.
