Enhanced by the photographs of Fabio Petroni, a master of still-life shots, this book reveals all the facets of wine: its ancient origins, the migration of historic grapevines, the phases of wine production (grape cultivation and harvesting, winemaking, aging and conservation), the principles of wine tasting, and the presentation of the principal wines and winemaking areas on a world level. An important section of the book provides 40 in-depth descriptions of the world’s most prestigious wines–their origin, the organoleptic characteristics, and the best pairings of varietals with certain dishes. Wine Sommelier also illustrates the secrets of cellar management and storage, the rules regarding serving temperature and decanting, and how to read the label and select the right bottle.
