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.

Drawing upon visits to more than 300 cellars, the 2500 wine reviews in Slow Wine 2016 describe not only what’s in the glass, but also what’s behind it: the work, aims, and passion of producers; their bond with the land; and their choice of cultivation and cellar techniques—favoring the ones who implement ecologically sustainable winegrowing and winemaking practices. An essential guide for wine lovers and armchair oenophiles and better still for those who get out of that chair once in a while: over half the producers listed will offer a discount of at least 10 percent to anyone who visits them with a copy of Slow Wine 2016 in hand.
