Nicolas Belfrage concludes his two-volume tour of Italian wine with a look at the outstanding varieties from Tuscany to the south. In "Barolo to Valpolicella," Nicolas Belfrage demystified northern Italian viticulture, discussing dozens of wines ranging from the highest-quality vintages to affordable selections that can be enjoyed every day. Now, with "Brunello to Zibibbo," the second of his two-volume survey of Italian wine, Belfrage considers the wines from Tuscany to the south, again concentrating on the regions' indigenous vines and the unique grapes that make Italy's wines so exceptional. The book offers extensive coverage of the vines and wines of Tuscany but also assesses the emerging wines of the south, on which, to date, little has been written. From the Sangiovese, or Brunello, of Tuscany, to the Zibibbo, or Alexandrian Muscat, of the island of Pantelleria off the Tunisian coast south of Sicily, this book is an authoritative primer on the wealth of Italy's vineyards and a discerning guide to the regions' best bottles.

In May 1999, four friends - two restaurateurs, a chef and a photographer - set out on a three-week holiday in southern Italy. Gail and Kevin Donovan, owners of Melbourne's popular Donovans, wanted to find visual and culinary inspiration for their constantly evolving bayside restaurant. Renowned photographer Simon Griffiths had been to Italy before and desperately wanted to go back. Donovans chef Robert Castellani looked forward to extending his knowledge of Italian food and of his Italian heritage. This beautiful book is their account of the journey. Travelling from Rome south to Sicily, Gail kept a diary of their adventures while Simon took photographs wherever they went, Kevin recorded the wines they sampled and Robert made notes on the meals they ate. The result is a lavishly illustrated, inspirational journal full of travel information, personal stories, ideas for design and decor and, of course, food - simple, delicious recipes which capture the flavours and colours of southern Italy.

THIS BOOK DOES not intend to portray the history of the period, but it is only a recollection of the early years of my life, the way I experienced it. I thought that the period I lived during the early years of my life was very unique and interesting from a social and human point of view, since it depicts a kind of lifestyle that many people are not aware of. Also, it shows how people in different part of the world coped with the same difficult problems of making a living, striving to improve living conditions, and secure a better future for their children. In general, it shows that when life and family goals are very clear and strong, people can go through the most difficult hardships and still achieve the desired results regardless of the political regime and the economic conditions that control the daily life.
