New in paperback, this book gives a visually stunning and irresistible portrait of Tuscany's culture, history, landscapes, people, food, and, most importantly, wines. In "Tuscany and Its Wines", Hugh Johnson demonstrates his intimate knowledge of and passion for Tuscany's history, landscapes, wines, and culture. One of the finest landscape and travel photographers, Andy Katz, enriches the experience with his glorious representation of the essence of Tuscany. Together they present an insightful exploration of the character of the landscapes and the rich accumulations of history, tracing the connections with Tuscan wines. In this beautifully crafted book, Hugh Johnson guides the reader through the famous Tuscan towns of Florence, Siena, Montalcino, San Gimignano, Montepulciano, and Lucca and some smaller, irresistibly charming settlements such as Pienza and Sant' Angelo in Colle. Along his route, he passes many villas and churches, restaurants, and enoteche (wine shops) in the Chianti hills and surrounding areas.Andy Katz's evocative photography of Tuscany in all seasons and moods - from sultry summer languor to the frenetic activities of the grape harvest - perfectly complement the mastery of the prose. A reference section is also included, providing a guide to the modern Tuscan wine list. This is a rich and satisfying book for anyone captivated by the Tuscan sacred marriage of light and landscape, wine and food, vines and olives, beauty and history.
